Liverpool vs City XI: Confirmed team news, predicted lineups and injury latest for FA Cup semifinal at Wembley.

Liverpool team news

Mohamed Salah will be fit to face Manchester City in today’s FA Cup semi-final, but Liverpool remain uncertain over Diogo Jota’s inclusion at Wembley.

Although the Reds boss made several changes to his starting lineup for Wednesday’s Champions League draw with Benfica, there were still a couple of concerns to come out of the game.

A knock to Diogo Jota makes him a doubt for Saturday’s trip while Klopp assured fans that Salah came out of his short substitute appearance unscathed.

“I said last night that Diogo got a knock – that swelled up slightly directly after the game, obviously while I was in the press conference,” Klopp said on Thursday.

“Diogo, good chance he will be alright but we need to have a closer look tomorrow. That’s it.”

Liverpool made seven changes for the midweek match, allowing Virgil van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson a full rest while Sadio Mane, Thiago Alcantara and Fabinho were given only a runout off the bench.

Manchester City team news

Manchester City are set to be without both Kevin De Bruyne and Kyle Waler as they take on Liverpool in a Wembley FA Cup semi-final today.

De Bruyne was substituted and spent the last 25 minutes of Wednesday’s bad-tempered 0-0 draw with Atletico Madrid in Spain with ice packed around his right ankle after a kick from Felipe.

Meanwhile, Walker limped off in the 73rd minute of the Champions League quarter-final second-leg tie after rolling his left ankle and was pictured wearing a protective boot on Thursday.

“They didn’t train today,” City boss Pep Guardiola said on Friday. “We’ll see tomorrow but apparently it’d be so close after what happened on Wednesday.”
