However, Rodgers confirmed that the Liverpool vice-captain has recovered from the problem, with Jose Enrique the only Reds absentee for the potential title decider.

“Everyone is fit. Daniel Agger is back in the squad. Only Jose Enrique is out. I’ve 20 players fit and raring to go,” Rodgers told his pre-match media conference at Melwood.

Meanwhile, City manager Pellegrini confirmed that Argentina international Sergio Aguero, who has scored 15 Premier League goals this season, is fit for the top-of-the-table clash.

“Sergio is OK; he worked all week with the squad normally, so he doesn’t have any problem.’ ‘It’s very important [to have Sergio back]. He’s a top player, it’s very difficult for their defence to stop him and so it’s very important for us,” Pellegrini told the media on Friday.

Leaders Liverpool are currently four points clear of third-placed City, although Pellegrini’s men have played two games less than the Reds.
