What is the early Man City vs Liverpool team news?

City have a couple of big injury concerns following their grieving Champions League quarter-final against Atletico Madrid in midweek. That may well hand a slight advantage over to Liverpool for the semi-final.

Kevin De Bruyne is a major doubt after needing stitches in his calf. Pep Guardiola confirmed the midfielder had missed training ahead of the game, and he would no doubt be a big miss at Wembley.

Kyle Walker could also miss out, having suffered an ankle injury at the Wanda Metropolitano in midweek. Ruben Dias though could be back in contention to make his return to action, having been named on the bench against Atletico.

Things are looking much kinder for Liverpool on the injury front, although the Reds do have a concern. Diogo Jota is a doubt for the semi-final, having been taken off early against Benfica in midweek.
