  • Klopp hopes De Bruyne is fit to face Liverpool

But when a team plays against Liverpool, especially away from home, they simply can not go into the game without some kind of plan to stop the likes of Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane from wreaking havoc.

Liverpool have faced Spurs, Chelsea and City in three of their past four league games, winning one and drawing two. "Against a very good team we managed to do that".

Perhaps that is something of a disappointment for Jurgen Klopp and the Liverpool fans; they swept City aside three times last season, and this term, they need a statement win to announce themselves as title challengers. If Liverpool can keep a clean sheet against Huddersfield then they will break that record for the best defensive start to a season in the club's history.

Liverpool - Pep Guardiola took responsibility for placing his trust in Riyad Mahrez as the Algerian's missed penalty five minutes from time cost Manchester City victory in a disappointing 0-0 draw at Liverpool on Sunday.

In the end he was proved correct, because while Jesus was not guaranteed to score, Mahrez missed his penalty spectacularly, a miss which was his fifth out of the last eight penalties he's taken.

'We were very strong and we showed that we can do both - we can have the ball but be strong as well, ' said Mahrez, who played a key role in occupying attacking left-back Andy Robertson.

It was further boosted when Fed chairman Jerome Powell suggested that moving beyond neutral interest rates was a possibility. It has fallen more than 14 percent since January, making it the worst performing major Asian emerging market currency.

Jesus has scored just two goals in 10 matches for the Citizens so far this season. The Brazilian had been keen but Guardiola sent a message on to the field via Benjamin Mendy telling him to defer to Mahrez.

'We made it hard for them and they made it hard for us at times but that's how it is.

Sunday will see a top of the table Premier League clash as Liverpool welcome Manchester City to Anfield.

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.

"Obviously I'm not that happy", he told reporters. Unlike last season, Klopp could not call on Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to penetrate City with runs from midfield due to the former Arsenal player's long-term knee injury lay-off.
