14 players set to miss title showdown as Man City and Liverpool dealt huge injury setbacks

After successfully advancing to the quarter-finals of the Champions League, Manchester City has shifted its focus to the upcoming crucial Premier League clash against Liverpool this Sunday.

With just one point separating the top two teams in the league, City understands the significance of a win, which would propel them back to the summit of the Premier League. However, a loss, especially if coupled with an Arsenal victory the day before, could deal a significant blow to their title aspirations.

Both teams are grappling with injury concerns, further complicating their preparations for the high-stakes encounter. Ahead of the match, Manchester Evening News (MEN) Sport has examined the players who may be unavailable for selection on Sunday afternoon.

Neither side is expected to be at full strength for the showdown, with key players facing fitness battles. Manchester City’s injury worries include the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, who sustained an injury in the Champions League, and Ruben Dias, who has been sidelined for several weeks. Liverpool, on the other hand, is facing concerns over the availability of top scorer Mohamed Salah, who missed their recent match due to injury, and Trent Alexander-Arnold, who has been nursing a hamstring issue.

Despite the setbacks, both teams will be eager to field strong lineups for what promises to be a fiercely contested encounter. The outcome of Sunday’s match could have a significant impact on the title race, adding an extra layer of intrigue to an already highly anticipated fixture.
