'Beating Manchester City massive for Reds'

Manchester City ran away with the league last season, but it was Liverpool who handed them their first defeat of the season.

Trent Alexander-Arnold has had a good start to the season with Liverpool, but at times his youth has got the better of him.

He said: "Obviously we won the last three games against City". Hoffenheim did well to set themselves up to trouble Guardiola's men on the break, but the City defence held its own most of the time.

City will once again try to end their Anfield hoodoo, having not won at Liverpool's famous stadium since a late Nicolas Anelka victor in 2003 - that's before some of today's teenage City fans were even born!

"I think Sergio has proved it now and I can assure you, having played against him when I was at Tottenham, he's a nightmare - a complete nightmare to play against".

Jimmy Butler’s trade request creates even more uncertainty for the Minnesota Timberwolves
Boston may be one of the front runner for his signature after Butler previously admitted he wants to play with Kyrie Irving . The idea of creating a team to rival LeBron James in Los Angeles might be particularly appealing to both Butler and Leonard.

The Reds bounced back from a 5-0 defeat at the hands of City at the start of last season to be seen as the Manchester side's kryptonite. We are only good at football and if we do not entertain people then why would we play it? The Premier League encounter will have much stakes riding on it as the victor of it will prove its title credentials. There have been 23 goals shared between the sides in their last six meetings at Anfield (in the league) that's an average of 3.8 goals per game.

The Premier League champions head to Anfield looking for a win that will take them three points above Liverpool at the top of the table, with only goal difference separating the sides after seven matches.

The City boss said: "The best way to protect the bus is for the Liverpool fans to be as Liverpool fans supposedly are".

The Argentine is one of the greatest goalscorers the Premier League has seen, tipped by team-mate Bernardo Silva to one day overthrow Alan Shearer as the competition's all-time top scorer.

We don't save lives; we don't plant or create anything; we are not good at surgery. "Benjamin Mendy trained with us today and is in contention". "But that's no problem; if you work hard, you earn it". The Guinean midfielder stayed overnight in a Naples hospital after suffering a back spasm.
