Mo Salah claims brilliant goal vs Watford

Mo Salah & Andrew Robertson start: Liverpool ‘confirmed’ XI vs Man City

Liverpool ‘confirmed’ XI vs Man City

A confident set of tweets from Liverpool ITK account, Anfield Express, has revealed the Liverpool XI versus Man City.

Liverpool head to the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday night in the Champions League quarterfinal second leg.

The Reds are firmly in the box seat in the tie, leading 3-0 after the match at Anfield.

Mo Salah opened, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scored the second, while Sadio Mane bagged the third.

The big news before the return leg is that Mohamed Salah is set to start for Jurgen Klopp.

Mo Salah & Andrew Robertson start

Salah will be stationed in his usual role on the right hand side of the Liverpool attack.

He’ll link up with Roberto Firmino and Mane in Liverpool’s favoured front three.

The other good news for Liverpool fans is that Andrew Robertson will return at left-back against City.

Man City’s recycled plan vs Mo Salah

The Times have gone about predicting the likely line-ups for the Man City vs Liverpool game.

They also included Salah in Liverpool’s XI.

Moreover, Aymeric Laporte is selected at left-back for Man City: a role which Laporte played at Anfield, however he failed to contain Salah as the north African opened the scoring for the Reds.

Should Pep Guardiola persist with his Laporte vs Salah tactic? Or should Fabian Delph, for example, start in the full-back slot instead?

You’d suspect Man City fans will be concerned with the recycling of the Laporte plan.
