After the madness and distraction of the transfer window we are back to focus on the Premier League as Liverpool and Manchester City open up this weekend’s fixtures in this thrilling encounter.

The hosts failed to add Alexis Sanchez to their team on the final day of the transfer window and will now focus on winning the league with the players in their possession.

City remain early favourites for the league title and they opened their season with a 2-0 win over Brighton but they have struggled for points since that game, drawing at home to Everton before a last gasp winner gave them victory against Bournemouth.

Manchester City has not beaten Liverpool in their last 6 encounters with Liverpool winning four and two ending in draws.

Liverpool have done very well in the league so far despite not being able to call on Philippe Coutinho.

The Brazilian has returned from his mysterious injury after failing to move to Barcelona but will most likely play a limited role in this game.

Jurgen Klopp still has the luxury of picking the same attacking force of Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino which destroyed Arsenal last time out and with no major injury after the international break, Liverpool could be too much for Manchester City to handle in this game.
