The England international won't get the opportunity to start against his former club, with Sterling reduced to a role on the bench at Anfield.

Kevin De Bruyne is expected to start on the right flank, with Ilkay Gundogan in a central attacking midfield role.

Gabriel Jesus gets the nod up top, with Sergio Aguero not available because of a knee injury.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, meanwhile, has made two changes from the side that earned a 2-1 win over Crystal Palace this past weekend.

Dejan Lovren steps in for the injured Joel Matip in central defence, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain gets the start over Georginio Wijnaldum in midfield.
