“Amazing Liverpool defender” could be back in the line-up against Manchester City.

Manchester City Colwill

Liverpool are going to play against Manchester City at the Etihad stadium on Saturday. The win would fetch the Reds the top spot in the league. Moreover, this win would give them an edge over Man City as the next few matches for Liverpool are not that much challenging as compared to City. To be more precise, the Reds would do anything and everything possible to get the crucial 3 points at the Etihad. Furthermore, return of several players in the team has given a sense of security to Liverpool. Players like Ryan Gravenberch, Curtis Jones and Joe Gomez are expected to feature in this high voltage thriller. Furthermore, an Amazing Liverpool defender is also training with the team ahead of Saturday’s clash. He’s the 6 foot 4 inch tall French defender Ibrahima Konate.

As per footballfancast, Ibrahima Konate was called up for international duty. But the player didn’t joined the French team as he was suffering from a hamstring injury. Because of this situation, Jurgen Klopp was concerned about Konate’s availability against Manchester City. However, the defender is back in training and it seems that he may start for the Reds on Saturday.

The Amazing Liverpool defender will play a crucial role on Saturday.

Ibrahima Konate has only started in 5 games for the Reds this season so far. However, this doesn’t have any effects on his abilities. Klopp knows what can Konate do when he’s on top of his game. The Frenchman was averaging 2.6 clearances and 1.9 aerial wins per game before he suffered an injury. This clearly shows that what is Konate capable of doing if he’s fit and in his best form. Alongside an in form Dutchman Virgil Van Dijk, Konate will surely be a nightmare for City’s attack. The Reds can rely on these two players at the back.
