HUGE injury blow for Liverpool (and boost for Man City) ahead of today’s match

Manchester City’s hopes of ending their Anfield jinx that stretches back to 2003 has been boosted by news that £75million Virgil van Dijk will be missing for the hosts.

The world’s most expensive defender is highly unlikely to be risked by Jurgen Klopp after being hampered by a tight hamstring, James Pearce of the Liverpool Echo reports.

Dejan Lovren is expected to partner Joel Matip in Van Dijk’s absence, but the Dutchman’s absence is sure to boost City’s confidence of getting a good result at Anfield.

Since Nicolas Anelka’s injury time winner in 2003, City have won 0, drawn 5 and lost 10 of their visits to Liverpool’s ground, their last remaining ‘bogey ground’ in the Premier League.
