Meanwhile, Ederson has been in great form for Manchester City with the Brazilian being City's first line of attack.

While Coutinho's departure brought the curtain down on his role in Liverpool's attacking "Fab four", Klopp's three remaining big hitters will ensure the Reds pose a major threat to City's unbeaten record. "I do not know why because you would like to think they struggle against teams like Chelsea and the like".

City, however, began to hit their stride and came close when Leroy Sane's shot deflected wide and De Bruyne again looked for Aguero with a pass claimed by home keeper Loris Karius. He was quite impressive, it was a really good game. They will no doubt miss Philippe Coutinho. They have been bolstered by the return of Mohamed Salah to team training during the week, with the Egyptian expected to be fit to start.

City will be missing Brazil worldwide Jesus, who is set to be out for the next two weeks with a knee ligament injury, while captain Vincent Kompany is absent with a calf strain.

Klopp went on to talk about trusting his existing players, about chemistry and coaching and the moral obligation to improve what he had rather than team-build by numbers. David Silva is no certainty to play due to his ongoing personal issues, while Benjamin Mendy continues to be absent with a long-term knee injury.

Manchester City have joined the race to land highly-sought after midfielder Jean-Michael Seri, according to reports.

With AP Photos.Manchester City's 22-match unbeaten run in the Premier League came to a crashing halt with a 4-3 loss to Liverpool in a wild match at Anfield. Manchester City last tasted victory at Anfield back in 2003.

The Reds have now won four of their last five games, only drawing once to Arsenal in a thrilling 3-3 encounter. He always liked me as a player and I would be a liar if I said he didn't try.

People will point to the fact Sadio Mane was sent off in the first half of that game, and that's when it changed.

Never renowned for his prowess in front of goal, the 24-year-old England global left Arsene Wenger's side having registered nine goals across 132 league outings, but he never produced more than two in a single season which he managed in three separate campaigns (2011/12, 2013/14 and 2016/17).

This has the makings of a mouth-watering clash, as arguably the two most in-form teams are pitted against each other at Anfield. We did a good performance apart from a few minutes.

Oxlade-Chamberlain opened the scoring at Anfield to set the tempo for a thrilling contest which saw Liverpool nearly throw away a 4-1 lead before eventually holding out for a 4-3 triumph.
