James Milner converted a second-half penalty but Liverpool were unable to hold their lead and drew 1-1 with Manchester City at the Etihad.

Although there were plenty of chances, Liverpool were only able to take a point from their trip to Manchester. After a back and fourth first-half, Liverpool took the lead in the 51st minute when Milner scored his seventh goal of the season with a powerful penalty. His strike from the spot, courtesy of a Gael Clichy foul on Roberto Firmino, brought the match to life as Manchester City drew level through Sergio Aguero 19 minutes later. Despite KBD and Aguero going close and a golden missed chance by Adam Lallana, the final whistle blew with the sides level. The draw keeps Liverpool in fourth place, four points ahead of Manchester United.

Liverpool will have to cope without its captain for another couple weeks more due to a niggling foot injury.

Manager Jurgen Klopp broke the bad news as Henderson was originally hoping to return for this weekend's clash with Manchester City. But after missing the last four matches, Henderson will now miss out on international duty with England as well. Said Klopp: "No chance. The break [between games after City] hopefully is two weeks, we hope that will bring him back but there will be no game [for him] in this time. He cannot train, for sure he cannot play against City. It makes sense he is doing the rehab. Hopefully he can run in the second week of the international break and then we will have to see."

Emre Can scored a fine goal from range to give Liverpool revenge for their early-season defeat to Burnley.

It was the visitors who stunned Anfield in the early minutes, with Ashley Barnes sliding behind the Liverpool defence to finish a sumptuous ball from Lowton on the right. However, Liverpool scored an ill-deserved equaliser on the stroke of half-time having absorbed quite bit of pressure and failing to apply any class going forward. It was Wijnaldum who scored it, having flicked a cross into Ben Mee's chest, he received it back and slipped it home. The Clarets held most of the possession in the second half, but Liverpool were improved by the withdrawal of the woeful Coutinho. Emre Can scored with a low curler from 30 yards to give the Reds a lead Burnley couldn't reel in, in spite of great chances for Barnes and Lowton. Mané should have made it 3, but his control left him down at the vital moment and Heaton was equal to his attempt.

Liverpool could be without Roberto Firmino for the club's weekend match with Burnley, leaving Jurgen Klopp with a bit of a selection headache.

The German manager has already ruled out forward Daniel Sturridge and midfielder Jordan Henderson due to hip and foot injuries, respectively, but could also be without Roberto Firmino for Sunday's match. The Brazilian attacker has only missed one Premier League game this season, starting every other match; but he has yet to train this week due to a persistent knock sustained in the 3-1 win against Arsenal. Said Klopp: "Unfortunately, Roberto Firmino has struggled a little bit. He felt something after the game and until now this week, he couldn’t train. We need to wait a little bit more and then we will see."

Jordan Henderson is likely to miss another match for Liverpool because of an injured foot as the midfielder is considered very doubtful to return for Sunday's match against Burnley.

Henderson has missed the Reds last two PL matches, which had mixed results: a 3-1 loss to Leicester, followed by a 3-1 win over Arsenal last weekend. Jurgen Klopp is blessed with a number of options in central midfield, with Emre Can, Adam Lallana and Georginio Wijnaldum likely the preferred trio this Sunday at Anfield. Henderson's fitness has also cast doubt on his selection for the England national team for the upcoming international break later this month.

Marko Grujic is edging closer to a first-team return after coming through an hour for the Under-23s on Monday evening unscathed.

The Serbian midfielder has been sidelined for over four months following complications and numerous setbacks in his recovery from a hamstring strain. Grujic was signed from Crvena Zvezda in January 2016, although he was immediately loaned back to the club for six months. However, injury and illness hampered his progress during the close season and Grujic was unable to establish himself in the Premier League, only two substitute appearances, although he was part of the League Cup side which won at Derby before progressing at the expense of Tottenham and Leeds. Grujic will now be working hard to improve in the hope catching Jürgen Klopp’s eye during the season run-in: "The key thing is that I continue to work in the gym, to work on the physical side of my game. The coach here wants me to do more in defence. He has said that. I am trying to work on those kind of things, and adapting to those demands."

Sadio Mane scored Liverpool's second goal as the Reds beat Arsenal 3-1 at Anfield on Saturday.

Mane joined Roberto Firmino and Georginio Wijnaldum on the score sheet but it was the former Southampton man who was the difference. Nacho Monreal just couldn't deal with Mane's pace or trickery on the wing and was a constant source of danger.

Dejan Lovren has returned to training late in the week for Liverpool and has a chance to start against Arsenal on Saturday.

Lovren has missed the last three matches with a knee injury, with the Reds losing two of those games. It is difficult to have confidence in his return as the injury has been one of the nagging variety and he could very well fail a late test ahead of Saturday's late kickoff. Fantasy managers will not be too bent out of shape should Lovren miss an additional week as the matchup with the Gunners may not provide much of a return for Liverpool defenders. Jurgen Klopp could return to Lucas as a partner to Joel Matip this weekend or switch to Ragnar Klavan.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was coy on the future of forward Daniel Sturridge at the club beyond this season.

Exit rumors have followed Sturridge since last summer with the forward struggling to stay fit and break into Klopp's starting lineup. Sturridge, who missed the weekend due to illness, has only scored two Premier League goals this season in 14 appearances, only five of which came in starts. Said Klopp: "We have to bring him back to the best shape possible and then bring this season to an end as successfully as possible. Then we will make decisions and speak about Daniel and any other players about what will happen at the end of the season. A lot of things will influence this and we can speak about it when it is time."

Jürgen Klopp says "it looks like" Jordan Henderson will miss this weekends’ clash with Arsenal at Anfield.

There were rumours during the build-up to the Leicester game that Henderson had broken a bone in his foot following a training ground challenge with Leiva when the skipper failed to travel to the King Power. However, tests and a scan revealed the 26-year-old, who has been plagued with ongoing foot and Achilles problems, had sustained heavy bruising which would keep him out for between 7-14 days. Speaking after the 3-1 loss to Leicester, Klopp suggested Henderson is a major doubt for Saturday: "It looks like he will not be ready for Arsenal," he said. "That's how it looks but I'm not sure, we will see." Emre Can came in for his first Premier League start in three weeks and it was his pass to Philippe Coutinho which helped to reduce the deficit late on for Liverpool.

Liverpool's top four hopes were dealt another blow after a 3-1 defeat at Leicester City on Monday.

It was night to forget at the King Power Stadium for Liverpool as Leicester City looked like the side that won the title last season, while the visitors were sluggish. Liverpool found themselves facing a two goal deficit at half-time as Jamie Vardy and Daniel Drinkwater buried a pair of chances inside 39 minutes, with Vardy adding a third 15 minutes after half-time. Jurgen Klopp's side would pull one back in the 68th minute through Phillippe Coutinho, but his near-post finish was too little too late. The defeat for Liverpool means they stay in 5th place, on 50 points, and remain just one point above 6th placed Manchester United.

The brief speculation over Adam Lallana's future at Liverpool is over after the club officially announced he has signed a new contract.

The former Southampton midfielder has been linked with Paris Saint-Germain and Tottenham in recent months following a stellar run of form that has seen him record seven goals and seven assists this season. But the 28-year-old has now signed a three-year contract reportedly worth £150,000-a-week to make him one of the highest-paid players at the club. Said Lallana: "Signing for a club like Liverpool is obviously a big thing – but to re-sign shows you’ve obviously contributed enough that the people who make the decisions want you to stay longer. This is a really good place to be at the moment and, for a player who wants to be part of something special, I can’t think of a better club to commit your future to."

Dejan Lovren is at risk of missing this weekend’s trip to Leicester after travelling to Germany to meet with a knee specialist.

It was hoped that the Croatian centre-back would rejoin the main group in training this week following their return from a warm weather training camp in La Manga, but his availability for Monday night looks to be in doubt as he struggles to shake off a persistent knee problem. Lovren has been playing through pain barrier in recent weeks and it was hoped that rest and treatment during the Premier League break would help. However, a decision has now made the decision to send Lovren to Germany in an attempt to find the underlying cause. Joel Matip will line-up in a flat back four while Jürgen Klopp could look to Lucas Leiva or Ragnar Klavan to partner the former Schalke 04 in the heart of the Liverpool defence.

Sadio Mane took a while to shake off his trip to Africa for the Cup of Nations but he came up big as Liverpool beat Spurs 2-0 in the marquee clash of Week 25.

Sadio Mane scored twice early, in the 16th and 18th minutes, to dampen any hopes that Spurs had of picking up any points at Anfield. From there, Liverpool stayed on top and were the more likely to score a third as opposed to Spurs potentially cutting into the lead. The win followed the season-long trend of Liverpool performing well against fellow rivals for the top four while Spurs have struggled to win against that same group of opponents.

Adam Lallana heads into Liverpool's match against Spurs late Saturday as a doubt, with Jurgen Klopp optimistic that the midfielder can overcome his Achilles injury.

Lallana missed a couple days of training in this week's buildup to the match against Tottenham, but Jurgen Klopp hoped to have the England international back in training on Friday, along with Dejan Lovren and Ragnar Klavan, who also missed training with knee and illness issues respectively. It sounds as though Lovren and Lallana have a better than 50/50 chance of making the XI on Saturday, assuming there were no setbacks on the training ground Friday.
