Gerrard: Liverpool v Man City will be classic

City had to use another coach for their journey home. But Guardiola feels that should be unnecessary.

"They best go to the bank and get an terrible lot of money out - or he's not going", he explained. Why should the police need to be there?

The on-loan Liverpool winger, who played the full game, helped his team on their way to three points with the opening goal three minutes into the encounter at Ibrox. Why should our fans have to protect our bus?

Eden Hazard continued his fien form during Chelsea's 3-0 win over Southampton on the south coast. That is what they should do.

When the two sides met back in April in a Champions League quarter-final first leg the visitors' coach sustained thousands of pounds worth of damage after bottles, flares and other objects were thrown.

"Liverpool should be upset not myself", he said.

Fulham's powerful Serbian forward Aleksandar Mitrovic also had a number of half-chances but was unable to get any clear shots in on goal, with perhaps his best attempt a thumped volley over the bar from outside the area. Now they know it. I spoke to the Doc this morning but he didn't know. In midfield, Fernandinho will sit deep with David Silva probably joined by Bernardo Silva, although Ilkay Gundogan is an option and Kevin De Bruyne appears to have returned to training sooner than expected. Benjamin Mendy is also fit for the game, and the return of the French global is another positive for Pep to ponder in his team selection.

Liverpool and City canceled each other out as they shared their first 0-0 draw at Anfield since 1986.

'This was a very important win for us against Hearts. We're keen to play Rangers again. "Liverpool have started so well, they have the same points us, but we were expecting that all along".


"When he has been a player for us for a long time, and hopefully it will be for a long time, sooner or later he will go many times to Anfield. They are a top side".

All three of Liverpool's midfielders - Jordan Henderson, Gini Wijnaldum and James Milner - are best suited to the pressing game rather than falling deep as they did against Napoli. In the last 15 minutes they had two big chances and scored a goal.

"A lot of times it was really close but there was no real flawless decision". If we don't entertain the people why are we playing then? I am completely relaxed. "In this type of game, we must to be ourselves". We can't start slow and wait for the crowd to lift us. He has a lot of weapons to attack you and they are masters in taking advantage of your mistakes.

"We don't want to have that feeling again so we will fight with all we have for a different result", he added.

Whilst City was comfortably beaten by Liverpool 3-0 away in the Champions League last season, Pep Guardiola's side has gone on a run of ten games without losing away from home in all competitions.

He said: "Obviously we won the last three games against City".

That's when we will find consistency. Then it can work.

Goals seem to be on the agenda when these two meet and while both teams to score looks a good option, I don't see much value in the price at around [1.56] despite thinking it may well occur, I think I would prefer to look elsewhere for a bet.
