Round four of the Premier League kicks off with a biggy as Man City take on Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium.

Manchester City could well be without captain Vincent Kompany for the visit of Liverpool at the Etihad this weekend after the Belgium global picked up an injury on worldwide duty.

As for Man City, they've been a bit more sluggish at the start of the campaign, as Pep Guardiola moulds his squad.

While it is still very early days, both sides have seven points from their first three matches, and will have eyes on a title challenge.

In short, Liverpool won't be given the freedom to attack at will as they did against Arsenal, but tactical flexibility hasn't always looked Klopp's strength in his time with the club so far.

And according to the report, Klopp is keen for Coutinho to be integrated back into first-team affairs at Anfield as quickly as possible.

Goalkeeper: Simon Mignolet was rested for the 4-0 win over Arsenal before the global break but the Belgian worldwide is fully expected to be recalled this weekend with Loris Karius dropping back to the bench. Simon Mignolet could return to the starting eleven after returning to full fitness.

Coutinho handed in a transfer request last month in an attempt to engineer a move to the Camp Nou, but the Reds insisted they would entertain no offers for the Samba star.

Nathaniel Clyne is still nursing a hamstring injury that's set to keep him out for several weeks so he won't be involved for a while.

Leaders Manchester United, who have a 100 percent record and are yet to concede a goal while scoring 10, travel to Stoke City for tomorrow's late kickoff.

The Brazilian was one of ten Liverpool players who returned to the club following the conclusion of their global duties, as Jurgen Klopp's side started their preparations for their clash against Manchester City on Saturday, as per the Liverpool Echo.
