Salah Fit For Reds As City Go Heavy In Attack Trailing by Three


In a huge boost for the in-form Liverpool, their Egyptian top scorer Mo Salah has been passed fit to start up front for the Reds Champions League quarter-final second leg.

He trained successfully last night despite initial fears over a groin injury which saw him miss last Saturday’s scoreless Merseyside derby against Everton at Goodison Park.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are potentially 90-minutes away from their first Champions League semi final appearance in a decade. The Reds defend a three nil first leg lead at the Etihad Stadium for the second leg of their quarter final with Manchester City.

City manager Pep Guardiola has named a back-3 as he looks to overturn that 3-goal deficit in a hugely attacking side.

Despite Sergio Aguero starting on the bench, Guardiola names an attacking line-up.

There’s four changes from the side that started the Manchester derby at the weekend. In come Kevin De Bruyne, Gabriel Jesus, Kyle Walker and Aymeric Laporte. Fabian Delph, Vincent Kompany, Ilkay Gundogan and Danilo make way. David Silva captains the side.

Kick off 7.45pm.
