Liverpool handed a huge fitness boost ahead of Manchester City clash

"If you want to achieve something good or win titles you have to not just win, you have to win on these kind of stages". Against teams that play a defensive style, De Bruyne can struggle to influence the game as he isn't given room to manoeuvre and the spaces available to him are limited. So, he ensured his side proved they weren't. This has helped put them in a strong position in the cup competitions. The rage, or rather the wounded pride, is particularly relevant here. We got a red card, which was the worst place in world football to be one down - wow! Chelsea's run was finished by a United again fired by Ferguson, but a Ferguson who was at that point criticised as finished himself, especially against an upstart like Jose Mourinho.

Van Dijk showed Liverpool fans just how much he will bring to his new side with a commanding display on debut, as he bullied Dominic Calvert-Lewin for the full 90 minutes. Defending champions Leeds 1969 would lose to the Everton that deposed them that same campaign, 19 years before an Everton who were themselves defending champions would claim a 1-0 riposte against a rampant Liverpool well on route to the league.

On Sunday, Manchester City head to Anfield for their Premier League clash against Liverpool. "And it obviously incurs more risk". Mohamed Salah. The Liverpool attacker has made one thing quite clear: he eats sovereign wealth funds for breakfast. City's form this season has been remarkable and if his team can maintain their consistency, they could soon start to match his Barcelona side in terms of achievement.

Since that victory they have lost 10 and drawn four of the meetings at Anfield, taking four points from a possible 42.

It is therefore all the more disruptive when they finally face a side that is close to them in quality but applies it with much greater conviction; with the conviction of the defiant.

He suggested the United States should instead encourage immigrants from countries such as Norway, whose prime minister he met this week.

Johnson had reacted to Bristol City's dramatic late victor against United last month by twirling a ball-boy around on the touchline, but he hardly dared to celebrate when Bobby Reid fired the Championship side ahead from the penalty spot. "He is a top lad, the most down-to-earth person you will meet". He won't take it without dwelling on it, without punishing and pushing himself.

The 26-year-old midfielder has, however, suggested that he will be committing to the Premier League leaders as he is feeling settled at the Etihad Stadium.

And Sane gave an insight into his manager's motivational skills as he explained how Guardiola has got the best out of him following a slow start.

Will City Come Unstuck at Swashbuckling Liverpool? He's not getting a run in the team. In the air City are one of the weakest team's at the top of the table. "No other team tackles them, so make sure [they] know that today's going to be hard", the United legend demanded.

It probably requires that defiance, that wounded pride, to finally produce a different result.
