Liverpool will give Javier Mascherano until the last minute to see if he has recovered from his calf injury in time to play Man City.
The Argentine was missing from the side for last week's Europa League win due to the injury, but the hope is he will be fit enough to play tonight.
Elsewhere in the side and boss Roy Hodgson will have to do without Joe Cole has he starts the first of a three-match suspension after he was sent off against Arsenal and Daniel Agger remains a doubt with concussion.
