Stones said City were delighted to keep a clean sheet after conceding seven goals in their past two visits - one game in the Premier League and one in the Champions League - but Mahrez's miss took the gloss off their performance.

"We want to get as close as possible and do as well as we can but we know it is going to be hard".

The £44m Brazilian, who was called up to the national team despite his struggles on Merseyside, has been an unused substitute in five of Liverpool's eight league matches, with his only start coming in the Carabao Cup against Chelsea. Both sides have been playing some scintillating football at the start of the season, and this match should certainly live up to the billing.

While talking with Sky Sports, he said "If Liverpool are in a really good position in January, I think they've got to be looking to address that [midfield area]", and added "It's not even necessarily having someone who comes in and plays every single game".

The Premier League now takes a two-week break for the global window with City next in action at home to Burnley on October 20th.

"The tackle cost his team a penalty and Virgil realised that he had made the wrong decision". The Reds looked a little jaded midweek in the Champions League encounter away to Napoli, a game which they eventually lost 1-0 after a stoppage-time strike from Lorenzo Insigne.


"In that situation, we help strikers when that happens". With 2 points above Arsenal, Jurgen Klopp opens up about Premier League title.

"If somebody would have told me after eight match days you have 20 points, I would say with that fixture list 'I'll buy it, let's start with the ninth match day!'".

Last month manager Klopp warned Fabinho that it could take him up to six months to adapt to Liverpool's style of play. At this moment, there 3 joint top leaders of the Premier League.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp backs Arsenal to challenge for the title.

But with the worldwide break now meaning it's two weeks before Liverpool play again, Milner could only miss as few as four matches.

"I think friendly games are one thing, but when you come to competitive games, it's completely different".
