Jurgen Klopp confirms that Mohamed Salah will be fit to face Manchester City on Sunday and the Egyptian winger is raring to go after his two-week layoff.

After missing Liverpool’s last two games due to a groin injury, Salah is back for the Reds and just in time too, as Manchester City prepare to visit Anfield.

Yesterday, in his pre-match press conference, Jurgen Klopp confirmed that Mohamed Salah would be fit for the crunch clash after returning to training this week.

“If nothing happens in this moment, Mo is back, he is training completely normally,” the manager told reporters at Melwood.

Salah has no nerves about facing the league leaders this weekend and says he lives for games like these.

“It’s the kind of game I love and for the fans it’s something different,” Salah said.

“Us and Man City are both playing great football, so it will be a perfect game and I’m very excited.

“I’m sure we can have a good result. They play fantastic football but, for me, I just think about my team.

“We will see on Sunday.”

Liverpool are certainly out of the title race, despite being just three points off second place. This is due to how incredible Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City have been this season and are currently 15 points clear at the top.

Salah and co. will look to give the Citizens their first defeat of their league campaign and Klopp will be turning to his big hitters to do the damage in Coutinho’s absence. With Virgil van Dijk now running things at the back for Liverpool, defensive situations will be more under control than before.

What are your predictions for the game at Anfield on Sunday? Liverpool victory or Manchester City win? Or even a draw?
