Steven Gerrard: Rangers must make statement against Hearts

Steven Gerrard: Rangers must make statement against Hearts

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.

Does Klopp have the upper hand over Guardiola?

Jurgen Klopp has just one pressing injury concern to deal with as Liverpool get set to welcome Manchester City to Anfield in Sunday's marquee clash. Besides, he is also behind the early success of the Reds this season where they are still dominating the second spot in the PL table.

"I really think the most important job of football is entertaining the people".

Man City: Kevin De Bruyne and Benjamin Mendy both returned to training this week and could be involved in some capacity, though the Frenchman is the more likely of the two to start. Let's get it out in the open.

The Guinean's availability is doubtful after he was carried off the field in Liverpool's midweek Champions League loss to Napoli due to a back spasm. Expect Jordan Henderson to play the deep midfield role with James Milner and Gini Wijnaldum just ahead, with Klopp asking them to press intensely from the outset.

Guardiola's team selection is, as ever, much trickier to forecast. Where Morelos was once considered a simple poacher who bundled home goals provided to him on a plate, the young striker is now routinely putting on performances that suggest his growth at Rangers is not only gaining pace but also proving quite useful to Steven Gerrard too. Aymeric Laporte, Nicolas Otamendi and John Stones would probably form the back three, with Kyle Walker on the right.

Liverpool vs. Manchester City - Football Match Report
The result left City, Liverpool and Chelsea in a three-way tie for the Premier League lead on 20 points after eight games. We tried to win but at the end we need to be happy - I need to be happy - that we didn't lose it because of the penalty.

Both men appeared to be going nearly nowhere in terms of their Liverpool careers before they arrived at Rangers. The only issue is unlike last season, Liverpool won't have a player like Oxlade-Chamberlain who can test the City defence with his driving runs from midfield.

Liverpool will be looking to getting back to winning ways, having gone without a victory in their last three games in all competitions.

But for one reason or another, Aguero is yet to score at the home of Liverpool in nine appearances for both Manchester City and Atletico Madrid.

City's team bus was attacked outside the stadium when it last visited the ground for a Champions League tie in April, with windows smashed as it was hit by missiles.

"We got sloppy at the end and a little bit complacent and we lost a little bit of energy, but I think it's normal in the circumstances".

Key Stat: Trent Alexander-Arnold has been carded three times in seven Premier League games this season.
