LIVERPOOL v CITY: TEAM NEWS

18 September 2015

The latest squad news from Colney

GARY Hooper will miss the Canaries' trip to Anfield with the ankle injury that kept him out of the Bournemouth game last weekend.

“He’s not going to be ready. It’s not as good as we’d hoped with Gary at this stage, so he’ll be a little bit longer than we anticipated," said Alex Neil on Thursday.

Steven Whittaker returns to the fold after serving his one-match suspension, but Andre Wisdom is ineligible for the match against his parent club.

There could be a place in the squad for Lewis Grabban, with Neil adding: "He’s trained the last couple of days, so we’ll monitor his situation."

Martin Olsson and Dieumerci Mbokani have each benefited from a full week with their teammates and are in contention to play against Brendan Rodgers' Reds.

Youssouf Mulumbu remains absent due to his foot injury sustained in City's final pre-season friendly against Brentford.
