Big Match Focus: Liverpool v Manchester City

Pep Guardiola

Pep Guardiola

Manchester City is always tough, even when we won 3-0 in the Champion League. "I don't know what's going to happen".

Beating Manchester City could be "massive" for Liverpool's season after three games without a win, according to Trent Alexander-Arnold. The Senegalese striker has scored four league goals against them, and only has a better record against Crystal Palace.

"But we'll try again, knowing that they have a very good squad but we will go with 100 per cent, so we can try to get the three points".

"It's very tough, probably the toughest away game of the season in the Premier League", the Germany global told ESPN FC.

Liverpool ride into Anfield on the memories of last season's successes against City, and THEY might help to banish the blues of an uncharacteristically limp display against Napoli.

Honjo, who became a Kyoto University professor emeritus in 2005, is the fifth Japanese victor of a Nobel medicine prize. The Nobel Prize in Physics and the Nobel Prize in Chemistry will be awarded on October 2 and October 3, respectively.

Guardiola signed the Frenchman for £52m from Monaco previous year and the player has been a regular starter this season since returning from a long-term knee injury.

Despite only returning to training on Monday after a six-week layoff with knee ligament damage, Kevin De Bruyne could make his return to action a full two weeks earlier than expected. "In the Premier League we beat them, in the Champions League we didn't". "They are a top side".

When Kenny Dalglish led the Reds to an 18th league title in 1989-90, Liverpool were streets ahead as England's most successful club.

Anfield was where City's unbeaten league run and Champions League hopes unravelled last season as Pep Guardiola's side failed to come to terms with Jürgen Klopp's high press.

"They deserve their praise for the way they play".

Her performance before her conference speech had a mixed reaction. "That is the approach I have taken on Brexit", she said. She said: "Our mission as Conservatives must be to show them we can build an economy that does".

"Salah scored 44 goals previous year but missed plenty of chances too". I don't play against the manager, we play against Liverpool.

If Liverpool need to restore any confidence, they need only look back at their last three games against City -all wins. Adam Lallana and Divock Origi are a couple of other players who won't be taking part in the game.

"You have to be ready, you need a fantastic football team - which thank God I have - with outstanding character, ready to be really fearless, ready to make mistakes".

"Back spasm. We have to wait a bit. It will be hard work, no problem with that, everybody knows it".
