Mendy returns for Man City in top of the table Liverpool clash

Levein's side are eight points clear of Rangers who they face at Ibrox on Sunday

That was as clear a chance as there was before half-time as both teams' exertions during Champions League games in midweek seemed to take their toll in a first 45 minutes lacking the intensity of their meetings from last term.

"Rangers have done that as well over many years with all their successful teams but last night was. wow!"

Hearts manager Craig Levein claims Rangers' European exertions might even be an advantage for Steven Gerrard's team going into Sunday's Ibrox clash. There was a bump in the road on Wednesday but we've got to keep trying to push forward and gather as many points as we can.

Liverpool are unbeaten in 17 home games against Manchester City in all competitions (W12, D5, L0).

"The team have put in good performances and have been strong". "If you play City you have to be 100 per cent spot on and confident".

Liverpool have drawn most of the plaudits for their start to the campaign but go into the match on a three-match winless run, with defeat and then a draw against Chelsea in cup and league before the 1-0 Champions League loss in Naples.

"I am very happy playing for these supporters and for Rangers". I spoke to the Doc this morning but he didn't know.

Turkish Police Believe Saudi Journalist Was Killed at Consulate
Saudi officials say he left shortly afterwards but his fiancee, who was waiting outside, said he never came out. A senior Turkish police source told MEE that Khashoggi had been "brutally tortured, killed and cut into pieces.

Gerrard is hoping for another pumped-up performance from both his players and the Light Blues faithful.

A rare incisive Liverpool counter-attack found Salah again in a good position 21 minutes from time, but he blazed high over the bar.

In Sunday's other game, Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang each netted twice as a resurgent Arsenal enjoyed a sixth straight league victory with a 5-1 rout of Fulham at Craven Cottage.

Napoli's pressing didn't allow the front three any time on the ball and they should expect much of the same against City, so they'll have to get rid of the ball much quicker and play more of those little passing triangles they manage to pull off so well.

"But that would mean I forget completely how we played three days before against Chelsea, so we have to stay cool".

Liverpool's biggest game of the season awaits them tomorrow at Anfield when they host Manchester City. After none of these games you go into the dressing room and think, "Now we know how to beat Manchester City", because there is no real way, no one thing that you have to do.

Klopp addressed Keita's fitness situation during his pre-match press conference, putting a shadow of doubt on the midfielder's availability, having not trained since sustaining the problem with his back.
