The 25-year-old, who has scored in two of his three league appearances against the hosts, lines up alongside Philippe Coutinho and Sadio Mane, who have similarly enjoyed their outings against the Citizens.
At the back, Dejan Lovren is held in reserve as Jurgen Klopp continues with Ragnar Klavan and Joel Matip in the heart of defence.
For the hosts, Fernandinho is dropped into the defensive unit at right-back, helping to provide added steel down that flank.
Manchester City starting line-up: Caballero, Fernandinho, Stones, Otamendi, Clichy, Yaya Toure, Sane, De Bruyne, Silva, Sterling, Aguero
Manchester City bench: Bravo, Sagna, Fernando, Nolito, Kolarov, Iheanacho, A. Garcia
Liverpool starting line-up: Mignolet, Clyne, Matip, Klavan, Milner, Can, Wijnaldum, Lallana, Mane, Coutinho, Firmino
