Liverpool will be without Trent Alexander-Arnold and Thiago Alcantara for Sunday’s Premier League clash with Manchester City.

Full-back Alexander-Arnold sat out the 5-1 Champions League win at Porto on Tuesday due to a muscle problem, while Thiago has missed the Reds’ previous three games with a calf injury.

Manager Jurgen Klopp does not expect either to be available until after the international break.

Speaking to the club’s website on Thursday, he said: “No ‘news’ means they are doing well but they won’t have enough time for being back against City, but I expect them both to be back after the international break. 

“But we have a good team so we still have solutions and we have to use them and yeah, after the international break the boys will be back I think.”

City won 4-1 at Anfield last season to end a 17-game run without an away league win over Klopp’s men.

Liverpool, who are on a 16-game unbeaten run in league football, will be hoping to avoid suffering back-to-back defeats to City for the first time since 1937.

The Reds go into the latest round of matches at the top of the table, one point ahead of a five-team chasing pack that includes City, Chelsea, Manchester United, Everton and Brighton and Hove Albion.
