Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Mohamed Salah is fit to face Premier League leaders Manchester City on Sunday.

The Egypt international missed Liverpool's last two games with a groin injury but Klopp says he is in full training again and raring to go for the game at Anfield.

Salah has been in scintillating form for the Reds this season, scoring 17 times in 21 appearances.

"If nothing happens in this moment, Mo is back," Klopp said. "He is training completely normal.

"That is of course very important for us."

Pep Guardiola's runaway Premier League leaders will present a massive challenge for Klopp's men, as they seek to avenge a 5-0 loss at the Etihad Stadium back in September.

You need to show that you can cause them problems, more problems than other teams can.

The Liverpool boss felt his team were playing well before Sadio Mane was sent off in that contest with the game scoreless.

"It is a big game, 100 per cent," said Klopp. "We played there a few months ago, probably one of the stranger games in my life.

"We were really good in the game. Slightly better side, slightly better chances, open game - both teams not fantastically defending but both on the front foot.

"Nice game and then we had a red card. That obviously changed the game and maybe for Man City the season."

Liverpool are 3.10 to end City's unbeaten run at Anfield. The visitors are 2.30 while the draw is 3.70.

Klopp says it is up to his players to show what they can do against the best team in the division.

"They are playing a fantastic season. Our season is not too bad but, in a game like this, you need to show that you can cause them problems, more problems than other teams can," he added.
