And, for a City-centric approach to matchday, you can tune into our live We're Not Really Here show, which begins one hour before kick-off and is available to watch across all our digital platforms.
Gabriel Jesus is available after making a timely goal scoring return against Olympiakos on Tuesday.
Naby Keita and Joel Matip were back in the matchday squad for Liverpool's midweek win over Atalanta, but Thiago Alacantara is a doubt for Sunday's clash.
The midfielder had not returned to training before Tuesday's Champions League game.
Fabinho, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Virgil Van Dijk will all miss the trip to the Etihad.
Liverpool arrived at the Etihad as champions back in July, but were swept aside 4-0 by Pep Guardiola's side.
Both teams come into the game on the back of comfortable Champions Leaugue wins.
City beat Olympiakos 3-0, whilst Liverpool thrashed Atalanta 5-0 in Italy.
In the Premier League, Guardiola's men are on a four match unbeaten run, whilst Liverpool have gone three games without defeat.
The Reds currently top the table and are five points ahead of 10th placed City.
PRE-MATCH PRESS CONFERENCE
"It’s always nice to play against the strongest teams possible.
"Last year they were stronger. They have been an exceptional team for a long time, with an exceptional manager. It is nice to face them to improve our level.
"Of course it is important (to win). We cannot deny that. It is the seventh game of the league and we have one game in hand.
"There are a lot of games left to play. We know how good we need to be to beat them. We know it from the past. We are going to do our best to beat them."
JURGEN KLOPP PREVIEW
"We are early in the season and so many things are different this year so nothing is going to compare to the year before.
"We have to just make sure we can get through the tough periods and play the best football we can.
"It's against Man City, who are one of the best teams in the world. I enjoy these types of games and it will be a tough task.
"To play against Manchester City is the most difficult game in world football and we have to prepare for that."

Shaun Wright-Phillips, Richard Dunne and Ali Benarbia will be the special guests for our We’re Not Really Here matchday show when Manchester City play host to Liverpool this weekend.
Jurgen Klopp’s side visit the Etihad Stadium on Sunday, 8 November, when the former City trio, who were key components of our swashbuckling side under Kevin Keegan between 2001 and 2003, will reunite to provide their expert analysis.
Dunne and Goater will both be in the WNRH studio alongside host Cel Spellman while former midfield marvel Benarbia will be joining us remotely to provide his own thoughts and observations.
The show begins at 3.30pm (UK time).
Bernardo Silva and Joao Cancelo preview Sunday's game...
But Bernardo is excited by the prospect of taking on Jurgen Klopp’s men and believes victory in this kind of game is vital for a side with title ambitions.
“We expect a very tough match against Liverpool, we know how strong and solid they are, one of the best teams in the world,” he said.
“We are also playing at home, which should have a positive influence.
“We need these three points in order to pursuit our place at the top of the table.
“The true is that our last encounters with Liverpool at the Etihad were positive for us.
“Since I have joined City, we won all our games against Liverpool at home in the Premier League, but these games are always unpredictable.
“We’ll do everything to keep winning and to win on Sunday.
“We know it will not be easy, but we will do everything we can.”
Meanwhile, in-form Joao Cancelo expects a tight affair against the Merseyside club.
With the mutual respect between the two sets of players so high, recent encounters have been more cagey than previous fixtures.
Cancelo expects there to be plenty of quality on display in a game he feels will be great to watch.
“I am excepting a very tight match against Liverpool on Sunday,” he said.
“Both teams are very solid, but I hope we will win this match, which is very important to us.
“We know how strong Liverpool is and we know they will bring a lot of pressure and with fantastic players.
“We also have an amazing team and great players, so I am sure it will be a very a good match with a lot of intensity.
“I believe we can do a great game and win this match. That is our goal.”
