Liverpool will face Manchester City on Saturday 25 November.
The Reds currently find themselves in an all too familiar story – trailing Pep Guardiola’s side by one point.
Nonetheless, the Cityzens have showed they are human this season, even losing consecutive games against Arsenal and Wolves.
Many believe that this fixture has grown to become the peak of football and the single game with the highest quality present.
The Reds need all the help they can get if they are to beat Manchester City at the Etihad.
Luckily, it seems that Jurgen Klopp may get the break he was looking for.
Netherlands outlet AD.nl has reported skipper Virgil van Dijk and Cody Gakpo will be rested for the game against Gibraltar.
Koeman’s side has already qualified for next summer’s European championship in Germany, so tonight’s game is merely a formality.
Additionally, with all due respect to Gibraltar, it is not exactly a fixture where van Dijk would benefit a whole lot from.
The added rest he will receive by missing this mid-week fixture could play a big part in ensuring that the Liverpool skipper is in the best condition come Saturday afternoon.
Cody Gakpo will also benefit from a break ahead of the crucial clash.
