Nathaniel Clyne, Jordan Henderson, Alberto Moreno and Daniel Sturridge are all still out injured.
"It's interesting to play against City". It remains to be seen whether Liverpool are in the market for a like-for-like replacement who was bought for £8.5m and sold for over £140m, but Jurgen Klopp will have to use what he now has at his disposal to try to get the better of all-conquering Manchester City this weekend. A return by Sadio Mane to his form of last season is now a must. "The records are there to be broken".
"We are facing them in their best moment".
If you take a more in-depth look into the stats, you can also see that a pattern is emerging with when and how City concede their goals. "You need to show up".
Guardiola, though, sees the match as an enjoyable challenge for his side, adding: "Of course if you want to achieve something that's good and win titles you have to win these kind of games". This season we have done that but we still have to go to Anfield and to Tottenham.
Gaurdiola spoke about Man City's trip to face Liverpool at Anfield, saying, "Liverpool is such an important game; to realize again if we are able to do big things in this season, in important stages, in the Champions League".
Manchester City have just been absolutely brilliant but this will be a tough test for them.

And when the wind chill registers below minus 50, it would take only five minutes for exposed skin to develop frostbite. Four people were reported killed in the southeastern states of North and SC , where icy roads sent vehicles skittering.
Given that Guardiola's side have won all five of their meetings with the other "big six" sides so far, they have very little to fear from their rivals and with a squad deeper than any of their rivals, preserving their unbeaten run throughout the last 16 matches of the Premier League season is certainly an achievable outcome at 4/1 (5.0).
"They are playing at Anfield - I'm not expecting a team that will wait for what is happening - I'm pretty sure he will try and make his own game and I think it will be a good game".
Liverpool are unbeaten in 17 matches in all competitions, their best run under Jurgen Klopp, since losing to Tottenham on 22 October.
Salah should get the nod in the starting XI Sunday in the Premier League's most anticipated match of the week.
Their 5-0 thrashing at City earlier in the season was Klopp's heaviest defeat in all competitions as Reds boss, and his joint-heaviest ever managerial loss.
It should be noted that on that occasion - 1936-37 - City won the first of their four top-flight titles. The Dons are the only club to do this since the Second World War.
Pep Guardiola has urged Manchester City to underline their intention to make history this season when the runaway Premier League leaders travel to Liverpool on Sunday.
