Liverpool will face Manchester City in the early kick off game on Saturday. The Reds are on a four game winning run and they have the quality to upset the Citizens in their own back yard.
No fewer than eighteen Liverpool players were away on international duty and we can expect some key stars to be fatigued for the all important fixture against the Sky Blues.
The Reds have been brilliant in the attacking third this season and a lot of credit for that goes to their front three stars.
Mane, Firmino and Salah have been top class under the management of Klopp this season but the trio have traveled the greatest distance and that could be a concern for the German manager.
City players like Ederson, Gabriel Jesus, Aguero, Fernandinho had to travel a long distance to South America so Guardiola will face the same dilemma as well.
Firmino traveled 14,617 miles, Salah traveled 8,584 miles and Mane traveled 6,713 miles (Sky Sports).
Yesterday, the trio participated for their national teams. Roberto featured for 63 minutes for Brazil, whereas Mane and Salah played full 90 minutes for Senegal and Egypt respectively. Star playmaker Coutinho was on international duty as well but he has not played for the Reds this season.
Not to forget, Liverpool have to collide against Sevilla next week in the Champions League as well. In your opinion, should Klopp start his star attackers vs Man City?
