Last week, reports emerged that Manchester City may be without key player Rodri for the clash against Liverpool.

The 27-year-old was ruled out of Spain’s 3-1 victory over Cyprus due to an unspecified ‘discomfort’.

The Spaniard was arguably Pep Guardiola’s most important player in last season’s treble heroics.

Indeed, Rodri has been indispensable for the Cityzens this term, and his absence has been keenly felt whenever he is not in the side.

There were then legitimate concerns from the Manchester City that one of their key men would not be available for one of the biggest fixtures of this season.

However, Rodri played 86 minutes during his nation’s victory over Georgia.

He was taken off late in the second half after managing to get through the game with no issues or complications.

This suggests that he will be available for the top of the table clash against the Reds, which spells bad news for Liverpool.

Manchester City do not have a good record with the Spaniard.

Infact, Pep Guardiola’s men have lost three times in all competitions this season.

Rodri was not in the squad for both of City’s losses in the Premier League as well the Carabao Cup exit at the hands of Newcastle United.

The likes of John Stones, Ederson, Nathan Ake, Mateo Kovacic and Mathues Nunes are all doubts heading into this week.
