Liverpool defender Ibrahima Konate fitness doubt for Manchester City game – The Athletic

Liverpool centre-back Ibrahima Konate is a fitness doubt for Sunday’s Premier League clash with Manchester City at Anfield.

The France international made his first start of the season when he partnered Virgil van Dijk at the heart of defence in the 7-1 Champions League thrashing of Rangers in midweek.

However, he missed training on Friday due to a muscle problem and was due to undergo further assessment on Saturday, putting his involvement against City in jeopardy.

The issue is understood to be minor but Liverpool will not take any chances with a player who only recently returned to action after two months out.
