Keita left the field on a stretcher early in Liverpool's 1-0 defeat to Napoli in the Champions League on Wednesday night, with plenty left concerned about his well-being.

Pep Guardiola has surprisingly revealed that Manchester City might be able to call on Kevin De Bruyne when his side visits Anfield tomorrow.

"Liverpool is one of the two greatest teams in England and that's why we tried to be close with them in terms of many, many things and we are closer", City boss Pep Guardiola said.

"But as a player there is not much more that you can achieve than playing these type of games, because when you play them or when the atmosphere is like that, you know it's a big thing".

Liverpool were the only major thorn in City's side as they swept all before them last season, ending the chances of Pep Guardiola's side going unbeaten in the Premier League with a 4-3 victory at Anfield and then winning both legs of the Champions League quarter-final.

The Reds haven't lost to Manchester City in the Premier League at Anfield since former Liverpool FC striker Nicolas Anelka came back to haunt his ex-manager Gerard Houllier's decision not to sign the France worldwide on a permanent deal.

A win on Sunday would be massive for Liverpool both in terms of going back to the top of the Premier League as well as building confidence to carry through the global break and into the next run of fixtures. He said: "He made part of the training today".

Anelka sealed a famous win with an added time victor in a 2-1 win back in 2003.

The Liverpool manager was never going to admit publicly to any misgivings and, if he were one for statistics, the relevant numbers to support his view that nothing is really wrong would not have been hard to dredge up.

In Brazilians Alisson and Ederson, these clubs have two of the best keepers in the Premier League, and I expect them to have busy afternoons. If league titles are won on your own turf, the Reds are well on the way to a challenge this season.

"The best way to protect the bus is for Liverpool fans to go into the stadium".

"They are so good at making a real attack and the three guys in front connect very well". If we do not entertain the people, why do we play it?

Jürgen Klopp was shown a clip of Manchester City's lavish All or Nothing documentary yesterday.
