Pep Guardiola up for sixth Premier League Manager of the Month award

Liverpool might come up against the Belgian playmaker on Sunday if he passes late fitness tests and will nearly definitely have a place on the bench even if he is unable to start the game at Anfield.

Mourinho goes into the Premier League fixture with United searching for a first home win in all competitions since the opening weekend of the season - a run that has put the 55-year-old's job on the line at the club. In the league, City has clicked into gear and are already top of the Premier League table only dropping points away to Wolves at the end of August. We can not wait until they [City] are not there any more.

"I thought Liverpool were very good against Chelsea", he said.

Gary Neville reckons that fatigue in Liverpool's outstanding front three of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino could potentially stop Jurgen Klopp's side winning the Premier League this season. So you can understand why people might think they have City's number. "I don't know what's going to happen".

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. We try to be close to them in terms of many, many things.

Keita's energy, technique and work-rate has meant the Guinean star has fitted straight into the Liverpool side this season.

"Hopefully he will be here for a long time with us".

Kohli and Pant take India beyond 400
Debutant Prithvi Shaw slammed his maiden Test hundred to become the 15th Indian overall and the youngest for the country to do so. If Kohli gets 49 more, he'll become the first Indian batsman to score more than 1000 runs in three consecutive calendar years.

Against a side of City's quality, I would always want to get a couple of results onside, and if the game is drawn, DNB allows your stake to be returned.

They have won the past three matches between the sides, their 4-3 victory in January at Anfield being probably the best Premier League game of last season, and both legs of the Champions League quarter-final between them.

"Against Napoli the first 15 minutes was an open game with better opportunities for us".

All three of Liverpool's midfielders - Jordan Henderson, Gini Wijnaldum and James Milner - are best suited to the pressing game rather than falling deep as they did against Napoli.

"It's a massive game", the full-back told Liverpool's official website.

"Salah scored three goals against City last season and they will write him off at their peril".
