Manchester City playmaker Kevin De Bruyne will miss a third successive game on Monday night because of a hamstring injury.
Midfielder Fernandinho is still nursing a knee problem and remains a doubt, while Claudio Bravo is a long-term absentee.
Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers has reported that there are no fresh injuries in his squad.
The only players unavailable to him are Daniel Amartey and Matty James.
MOTD COMMENTATOR’S NOTES
@Wilsonfooty: One by one, Manchester City have cleared the hurdles put in their way by the fixture list, and in doing so have left Liverpool lurching in a weekly cycle of hope and disappointment.
With all due respect to Manchester City’s final day opponents Brighton, this is surely Klopp & co’s last hope.
Leicester have all the ingredients Liverpool could hope for. A former Reds manager (in Brendan Rodgers) – who was pipped to the title five seasons ago by City, an in-form Jamie Vardy playing in a team full of confidence, and a side who have already beaten Guardiola’s men once this season.
But this is Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium. City – relentless, remorselessly patient, with almost infinite invention and only the most negligible faults.
Stranger things have happened in football, of course – but not too many.
VIEW FROM THE DUGOUT
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola: “Leicester were a counter-attack team. With Brendan Rodgers they have another way to play. They have incredible quality. I saw the last three games and was really impressed.
“Brendan has shown his incredible qualities as a manager. In two months they already play the way he wants them to play.”
Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers: “What we are trying to develop here is a style not too dissimilar to Man City. When you haven’t got the ball, there is a real intent and hunger to get it back, and when you have got the ball you ask as many questions as you can.
“You have to work very hard, and in those moments when you break through the pressure you have to make the most of it, and that’s what we will hope to do.”
I have been at Manchester City’s past three games and they have been able to step things up in the second half if needed. I am sure they will do that again if they have to.
