Klopp Defends Coutinho Omission from Manchester City Defeat

After that it was one-way traffic and Gabriel Jesus nodded in just before the break to double the lead.

The Gunners had lost to both Stoke and Liverpool heading into the global break but they were never in trouble as Welbeck inspired them to a 3-0 win against a poor Cherries side.

Was it a red? .

Nicholas, though, is confident Mane's determination to make up for his sending off and the Anfield atmosphere will see Liverpool prevail.

"He is good with the ball at his feet and he finds space", the 46-year-old proclaimed. Intent is irrelevant and it was both unsafe and reckless, so the referee had no choice.

Guardiola joked it would make the Brazilian "more beautiful" and said the injury would probably not sideline him for very long.

Simon Mignolet is pleased Liverpool are quickly back in action following their hammering by Manchester City.

"I'm not saying it was Klavan's fault that Liverpool did this, but he's not quite at the level of Lovren or [Joel] Matip". Subs: Oxlade-Chamberlain 5, Milner 6, Solanke 5.

Liverpool and Man City in big clash in England.

"He was one-against-one with the goalkeeper but had the ability to pass the ball".

It was all going so well for Liverpool without Coutinho.

Jurgen Klopp was understandably disappointed with Jon Moss' decision to send off the winger and claimed that both he and Guardiola thought it was the wrong decision. They won 9-0. He had a little problem in his calf.

The transfer window is closed and, for some, it couldn't come soon enough.

However, they will not need reminding that Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool put them to the sword on their own patch in November 2015, with that 4-1 defeat still the last time City were beaten by three goals at the Etihad Stadium. 5-0 and a stunner from Sane!

"Then you go a man down and the momentum and morale changed a bit".

That bodes well for the German as he needs Coutinho fit and on the top of his form form if he is to have a chance of delivering their first Premier League title.

Aguero and Jesus have played a direct part in three Premier League goals apiece in 2017-18.
