Liverpool handed a huge double boost ahead of Manchester City clash

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp claims that the biggest strength of Premier League leaders Manchester City is their "attacking discipline".

Manchester City have only dropped four points in total this season so far and are flying high at the top of the Premier League table after a brilliant start to Pep Guardiola's second campaign in charge.

If anything, the margin of victory flattered Liverpool - such was the dominance City had, it could have been more.

"Obviously there's a lot of talk before the game about whether I'd do it or not so to get that goal early on in the game as well, it was a great achievement".

"Hopefully we can do better than last season".

Mohamed Salah is 8/5 to score anytime, while Sergio Aguero is 10/11 to score anytime.

"We did it at Stamford Bridge, we did it at Old Trafford and [at Anfield] we have to do that". Chelsea has totally dominated this head-to-head series in recent years with a 12-1-1 record in its last 14 games against Leicester.

Manchester City are without Gabriel Jesus who has damaged his knee and is expected to be out action for a month. The England global has been in outstanding form for Guardiola's side this season but what's behind his scoring streak? By this point, Alexis Sanchez could be playing for a team in Manchester (not necessarily City!), though, and from a pure talent standpoint, Arsenal simply doesn't hold a candle to City.
