Liverpool have been busy in the past couple of days. The Reds have secured a couple of new signings in order to bolster the depleted back line. Jürgen Klopp will be hoping to bed in his new arrivals as soon as possible. Some Liverpool fans want Ben Davies to start against Man City after seeing clips of him playing the Citizens.
Liverpool defensive crisis
The Reds have been ravaged by injuries in recent months.
We were reduced to just one senior centre back in Autumn.
Virgil van Dijk is unlikely to play again this season after rupturing his ACL in the Merseyside Derby.
Meanwhile Joe Gomez is also unlikely to feature again after picking up a knee injury of his own.
Joel Matip held out for as long as he could but the Cameroonian has been ruled out for the campaign with an ankle injury.
Liverpool sign Ben Davies
This week Liverpool completed the signing of Ben Davies for a fee in the region of £2m.
The 25-year-old centre back joined from Preston North End.
Considered one of the best defenders in the Championship, he was thought to be close to a move to Celtic before the Reds swooped in at the 11th hour to secure his signature.
The defender could well feature against Man City this weekend with the Reds set to host the Citizens at Anfield.
Some Kopites have been raving over footage of Davies from when he faced Pep Guardiola’s side in the cup earlier this season.
