Ruthless Man City maul Liverpool

Ruthless Man City maul Liverpool

"Yes, he will now do a little bit more than the other boys but he showed up in a very, very good mood and looks really promising". Any defence would be scared stiff of facing him after his start to the season. Sometimes he forgets about his defensive duties but his pace gets him out of trouble.

It's no secret that a lot of Liverpool fans despise the worldwide break - as many top-tier football fans should - but fortunately, no players have returned with new injure.

"It is so important for us to feel that for our central defenders, with long balls, we have one guy to help us". We changed at half-time - sometimes you can use both systems.

"I'm sad [for Vincent Kompany] - I would like him to be fit".

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola hailed Kevin De Bruyne as a "complete player" after the Belgium worldwide turned in a virtuoso display in the 5-0 thrashing of 10-man Liverpool.

Referee Jonathan Moss deemed the challenge reckless and risky enough to merit a straight red card and the Brazilian received eight minutes of treatment before medical staff carried him off the field and straight to City's medical facility for checks.

As a result, some have wondered since if Jürgen Klopp didn't make a mistake leaving Philippe Coutinho out.

When they were here it was so good for them and the only thing they could tell me was that I will have a great time here and I have to say yes. He wanted to go and play for Barcelona - as anyone in their right mind would. They will realise it was a hard situation for everyone involved. I will have the situation all the time now over the next three or four weeks.

When de Bruyne is on his A-game, there aren't many players in the world that are better.

Even without Coutinho, I think Liverpool could get something on Saturday.

"We have to take the first 20 minutes and how we played before the global break and take it into the next game", Mignolet said. They leave space in behind and I think Liverpool will be able to exploit that on the break - especially with Mane in such lethal form.

"City is very offensive-oriented and we are very offensive-oriented".

"This season he is in a good mood - maybe because he is a father now, I don't know - he's always optimistic, it's good".
