Klopp said this following his side's Premier League 0-0 draw with City at Anfield on Sunday in the Premier League. "For Salah it was the first one so we will see in seven or eight years". Dejan Lovern has been handed his first Premier League start of the season, Trent Alexander Arnold is on the bench. We played so well so if you want to analyse the result it was OK.

As I said on Match of the Day on Saturday, what has been happening at United this season has been embarrassing, right through the club.

Van Dijk feels the title will not be decided by high-profile encounters like Sunday's - more so Liverpool's match with Huddersfield Town after the worldwide break.

Liverpool have been backed to win the Premier League title "soon" by former Manchester City manager Sven-Goran Eriksson.

Alexandre Lacazette scored 17 times in his debut season with Arsenal but the French forward finished last term in danger of becoming an expensive flop.

"I am really happy with what the boys did today", Klopp said.

Any prolonged lay-off however would be a major blow for Liverpool as they look to keep up their flying start to the season and repeat their European heroics. In the league, City has clicked into gear and are already top of the Premier League table only dropping points away to Wolves at the end of August. Mahrez missed a penalty which meant Liverpool, Man City and Chelsea are all level on points.

City defender John Stones said the players had decided among themselves that Mahrez would take the kick after impressing with his spot-kicks in training last week.

There is confidence around Anfield after the team matched City and second place Chelsea, who have both had easier runs over the same period.

Fabinho has provided an update on his transition into a Liverpool midfielder as Jurgen Klopp slowly introduces the Brazilian into life on Merseyside.

"If it is an open game at Anfield you don't even have a one-percent chance".

But with the global break now meaning it's two weeks before Liverpool play again, Milner could only miss as few as four matches.
