Attacker dropped: Liverpool best possible XI to face Manchester City
COMMENT By Dominic Toner
Liverpool should make two changes to their starting XI for the upcoming Premier League clash against Manchester City.
The Reds travel to the Etihad Stadium on Sunday for a Premier League clash and will be looking to follow up back-to-back victories over Burnley and Arsenal.
Jurgen Klopp must make two changes to his side and recall Roberto Firmino and Dejan Lovren to the team.
That leaves squad players Ragnar Klavan and Divock Origi to drop out to take their places on the bench.
The Reds attacker Origi was given the chance to impress when he led the line against Burnley, but was unable to take his chance and looked rusty.

The 21-year-old has fallen down the pecking order under Klopp this season and it is seriously effecting his progress.
Liverpool should stick with their number one Simon Mignolet in goal, but realistically Klopp must look at bringing in a top-class goalkeeper in the summer.
Meanwhile, Lovren should be restored to the line-up after his return from injury and will be a massive boos to the side, with Ragnar Klavan and Lucas vulnerable in his absence.
He should resume his partnership alongside Joel Matip, while Nathaniel Clyne and James Milner continue in the full-back positions.
Klopp should stick with the midfield trio of Emre Can, Georginio Wijnaldum and Adam Lallana, who are beginning to click during the absence of captain Jordan Henderson.
Liverpool should resort to the favourite frontline of Sadio Mane, Philippe Coutinho and Firmino.
They are going to need high intensity and pace to beat a strong Man City outfit, something their frontline have in abundance.
