Liverpool stun City as Sanchez nears exit

Liverpool stun City as Sanchez nears exit

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain gave the home side the lead after just nine minutes with a stunning strike which set the tone for the remainder of the game.

The addition of Virgil van Dijk to their Premier League squad will make them stronger at the back and he will get another opportunity to impress against the league leaders.

But after putting four goals past City on Sunday, it would seem as though there is plenty of reason to agree with the ex-England international's question - 'Who needs Coutinho?'

Klopp's men were beaten 5-0 at the Etihad Stadium in September, but were only 1-0 down and causing Pep Guardiola's side plenty of problems before Sadio Mane was sent off for catching City goalkeeper Ederson with a high boot. And now, as a result, they have a point to proof-that Liverpool FC are not weak.

When asked whether the Reds were interested in bringing him to Anfield, the German told the Guardian: 'Yes, I was also talking with them.

"Every team fights for the Champions League, to win the league or to stay up".

The 50-year-old's celebrated tenure at Signal Iduna Park featured back-to-back Bundesliga titles and saw him become one of the most sought-after coaches in European football. He also provided updates on the status of couple of other players who are out with injuries - namely Alberto Moreno and Jordan Henderson. David Silva is no certainty to play due to his ongoing personal issues, while Benjamin Mendy continues to be absent with a long-term knee injury.

"But at the end of the season, when we win the Premier League, nobody cares if we lost a game".

In sweeping all before them with 20 league victories and two draws, many were comparing City to Arsenal's "invincibles" team of 2003-04.

Leroy Sane has revealed that he twice turned down the chance to work with Jurgen Klopp before eventually joining Manchester City in 2016.

The then Borussia Dortmund midfielder had been courted by former manager Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool and Pep Guardiola at City, and deliberated offers from both clubs before making a decision on his future.

Manchester City Expected XI (4-3-3): Ederson (GK); Walker, Otamendi, Stones, Delph; Fernandinho, De Bruyne, Gundogan; Sterling, Aguero, Sane. "Anfield is one of the hardest stages in the world and on good days Liverpool are able to beat any team in the world". City have triumphed against Liverpool just once in the past six meetings in the league, a demolition in their last encounter.

'We will defend our position game by game'.

This a bit hypocritical of me to consider Liverpool's good form while Manchester City are the most in-form team in Europe, but playing at Anfield makes the Reds somewhat unbeatable.

Liverpool leapfrog Chelsea into third spot.
