Liverpool will look to secure another three points when they face Premier League leaders Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

Last weekend, the Reds cruised to a comfortable 3-0 victory against Thomas Frank’s Brentford side.

The result moved Liverpool to second in the Premier League table, one point off the Citizens.

The winner of the colossal clash will likely top the table at the end of the game week.

Jurgen Klopp’s side completely revamped their midfield in the summer, selling the likes of Jordan Henderson and Fabinho.

James Milner, Naby Keita and Alex Olxade-Chamberlain also departed after the expiration of their contracts.

The Merseyside outfit brought in Dominik Szoboszlai, Alexis Mac Allister, Wataru Endo and Ryan Gravenberch in a bid to bolster their personnel in the central areas.

It appears that Liverpool are considering signing another midfielder in January.

According to Football Insider, Liverpool are weighing up a potential deal for out-of-favour Manchester City midfielder Kalvin Phillips.

The report claims that the Reds are long-term admirers of the defensive midfielder and have joined a long list of clubs interested in him.

The article also claims that Phillips would prefer to stay in the Premier League but will not rule out a move abroad.

Liverpool will be considering bringing in Phillips in January to bolster their midfield depth.

Phillips, 27, has struggled for game time since joining City from Leeds United in 2022.

The Citizens signed the midfielder after his impressive performances under former manager Marcelo Bielsa.

Since switching to Manchester, the England international has only featured in 29 games for the Sky Blues.

He has struggled for first-team action and has notched eight appearances in all competitions for the Manchester outfit this term.

The midfielder is seeking an exit from the club in a bid for regular game time elsewhere, and it seems he has plenty of suitors sniffing around him.

Phillips is contracted to Manchester City until 2028.
