Manchester City begin negotiations with Madrid over Fernandinho successor

Manchester City begin negotiations with Madrid over Fernandinho successor

Pep Guardiola has confirmed that Manchester City may have to do without Kevin De Bruyne against Liverpool after missing their trip to St. Mary's to face S'ton. Down at the bottom there were vital wins for Cardiff, Fulham and Burnley as they look to survive the drop.

"He's been looking at this for a year now or more and unusually City have not really responded or reacted properly to this".

Kick-off is at 2.15pm.

"We play the way that the game tells us to play", says Robertson.

A 2-2 draw with Manchester City and a goalless draw with United would suggest there is no evidence for Liverpool fans to worry about.

City bounced back from consecutive defeats to Crystal Palace and Leicester with a 3-1 win at Southampton to move back into second above Tottenham.

Antonio Rudiger, Chelsea (Tier 1 defender): Rudiger has the third-highest fantasy points per game average in this tier, and the two players ahead of him play for Liverpool and Manchester City. If we have a full squad, all players available, then the preparation is a joy.

Liverpool thrash Arsenal 5-1 in English Premier League

'I don't know how he is, ' said Guardiola.

And with Liverpool's positive results against Manchester City last season, there is no better team to beat the defending champions on their home pitch.

He has conceded just eight goals in the Premier League so far and has adapted to English football exceptionally well since a £66million switch from Roma in the summer.

"We came close of, course, in May and we have started well this season but we need to go into 2019 and hopefully that calendar year can bring a trophy".

Firmino's hat-trick in the 5-1 win over Arsenal were his first league goals at Anfield this season as he adapts to a deeper role but his work rate has been outstanding. We're in a good position just now but it's about continuing that and trying to build on every game that we play'.

"When we went to City a year ago, do you think I had the table in the dressing room and said, 'We are fourth, they are first?'" he asked after the Arsenal game.
