‘Has to start Wednesday’ – Liverpool fans on Twitter urge Klopp to bring back star for Man City test

The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern have been making their voices heard as they want to see Nathaniel Clyne start against Manchester City in the club’s huge Champions League clash on Wednesday. The former Southampton man is yet to play a game this season after requiring surgery on a back injury. 

Whilst the Liverpool fans propping our bar up all agree that when fit Clyne is the club’s best option at right-back, the fans are debating whether giving Clyne his first game of the season in such a big game is a good idea. Liverpool have been stuck relying on youngsters, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez in the right-back position in Clyne’s absence and between them, the pair has impressed on the right side of Liverpool’s back line.

The last time Liverpool faced City they became just the second team to beat them this season as they ran out 4-3 winners at Anfield with Joe Gomez starting at right-back. This time around, it’s expected that it will be Alexander-Arnold in the eleven, despite his struggles on the weekend against Crystal Palace. The Champions League is Liverpool’s last chance at silverware this season and in Manchester City, they face one of the favourites to take home the trophy. Klopp will know his side need to be on top form if they’re to beat City to a spot in the last four and he’ll be hoping that Clyne is back to full match sharpness sooner rather than later.
