Man City fullback Walker warns Liverpool fans: You can't intimidate us

What Manchester City achieved last season was incredible and they've started this new campaign in the same manner.

But with United already nine points adrift and Tottenham, Arsenal and Chelsea also playing catch-up, Liverpool know beating City is the key to ending that long wait.

Klopp says he has huge respect for the way in which City play under Guardiola and described it as "exciting" to face his teams. At the time of doing this column I can't offer an explanation beyond: we weren't good enough.

Almost half of all City's defeats last season came against Klopp's team, including both legs of their Champions League quarter-final, while a 4-3 loss at Anfield ended their hopes of going a whole Premier League season unbeaten.

Such sentiments are firmly shared by Henderson, who has outlined the collective determination within the squad to conjure up a much-improved performance against Pep Guardiola's reigning champions. Sometimes we win competitions, sometimes we lose competitions.

While Salah was taken off earlier in that contest, the front three have hardly been rested this season by Klopp.

And when Messi made it 4-2 in the 90th minute, it was Suarez once again whose dummy created space for Barcelona's No.10 to score. He then scored twice after the break, helping Ernesto Valverde's side to a 4-2 victory.

Kavanaugh has denied their accusations. "With all of that you can not say that we've done anything but be respectful, and I do". It also says Kavanaugh gave "intemperate, inflammatory" responses and was "discourteous" to senators.

The Reds suffered a 1-0 reverse in the Champions League tie in Italy on Wednesday night, with Jürgen Klopp acknowledging afterwards the hosts were deserved winners but vowing his side would learn from their errors. "They are a top side".

Kevin De Bruyne could return from injury at Anfield and Walker admits a few of the Manchester City players have struggled for fitness after the World Cup.

If Liverpool need to restore any confidence, they need only look back at their last three games against City -all wins. "The Police knew it before it happened, now we know it, I don't know whats going to happen".

Last season, the coach relied on Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's speed and energy to press high and exploit spaces in between the Manchester City midfield and defence, a role that Keita could have occupied.

"Obviously we won the last three games against City". Sterling has started the season superbly and has four goals and two assists in six Premier League games, the 23-year-old is playing some of the best football of his career and don't be surprised if he scored against his former club.

"There is no real way, no one thing that you have to do".
