Liverpool have named their starting eleven and substitutes to lock horns with Manchester City in a Premier League clash at the Etihad Stadium this afternoon. He did not suffer concussion and was cleared of serious injury. You want to go for the ball.

The Senegal winger had both feet off the ground as he challenged for a high ball with Ederson outside the box, with the Liverpool man's studs catching him in the face.

De Bruyne joined City two years ago when Guardiola made him one of his first signings after watching his impact for Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga when he was in charge of Bayern Munich. "Unfortunately he is injured but hopefully he will come back as soon as possible". The hosts then took a firm grip after Mane's dismissal.

"It was not a foul but it was a red card and you have to accept it".

The win sees Pep Guardiola's side move top of the Premier League ahead of Manchester United's trip to Stoke later this evening.

Midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum admitted the visitors did not respond well after the red card.

City had another effort ruled out when Aguero put the ball in the net early in the second half but the Argentine showed generosity when, after latching on to a Fernandinho through ball and facing only Mignolet, he slipped the ball to Jesus for the third. We also need to learn, the first half we need to influence the game in another direction.

"It never works", the German said of any appeal.

As regards the general performance, Klopp said he was disappointed Liverpool didn't take their chances when it was 11 against 11, and lamented the amount of space his side gave up. "We are strong. Thanks for all your messages of support".

"I'm not satisfied with a point because we were the team closer to winning".

Harry Kane reached his Tottenham century as the England striker's brace inspired an impressive 3-0 win at Everton. All three up front were not really involved. The top managers don't like it when they get the bad results. We had chances. The first goal is unnecessary, we were too laid back, not too smart. "We had one of these days where everything goes against us".
