Liverpool set to break 40-year-old record after Man City result

Liverpool set to break 40-year-old record after Man City result

Despite finishing fifth last season, Chelsea look completely reinvigorated under new manager Maurizio Sarri.

Furthermore, he is yet to play a single minute in the Premier League - but Fabinho insists he is getting to grips with life in England.

They commit so many men forward that they can be caught on the counter-attack, particularly if their full backs are well advanced, but not many teams have the tools to exploit that.

City probably asked more questions than Liverpool and such was their quality on the ball, they always looked in control and had Riyad Mahrez not missed his 86th minute penalty kick you couldn't argue with the reigning champs edging this one.

Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville offered his opinion on Arsenal and Chelsea's title chances.

They certainly have not been as easy on the eye as in previous years but I don't think that will bother their manager Mauricio Pochettino too much.

But when I watch the Gunners, I don't see a team that can challenge for the title.

Ramsey started and finished one of the goals of the season, scoring with the sort of flick that even Johan Cruyff would have approved of.

The former England global was once again selected to line-up alongside Jordan Henderson and Goerginio Wijnaldum in the middle of the park for Liverpool's top-of-the-table showdown with Manchester City on Sunday.

Mourinho was reassured of his position by his employers but, according to The Telegraph , he wants to be backed publicly. When his players return from global duty, Man United will face Chelsea and Juventus within three days.

Klopp did not push his full-backs - Andy Robertson and Joe Gomez - up the pitch because he knew City could hurt Liverpool on the break.

They are also managing around 20 goal attempts per match this season, compared with just under 17 in the same matches last season - despite losing Kevin de Bruyne to a knee injury shortly after their opening match of the campaign.

"If anything happened to Hazard they'd be in trouble".

The Fiver: sign up and get our daily football email. Maybe when we won 2-1 at City, they pushed us in our own 18-yard box and we didn't know exactly how to come out.

"This team is experienced".

Fabinho has been an unused substitute in the last four Premier League games, with Georginio Wijnaldum, Jordan Henderson, Naby Keita and James Milner sharing the three midfield spots between them.

'But the most important part was that our performance was very good.

Holding Man City to a clean sheet meant that the Reds have only conceded three goals in their first eight matches.
