Manchester City v Burnley preview

But Guardiola says that they must forget about chasing down Antonio Conte's side and concentrate on improving performances and trying to pick up as many points as they can - starting with Burnley on Monday.

David Silva's run from the right and shot across the face of goal, just missing the far corner, was as close as City came to an equaliser as they slipped 10 points behind leaders Chelsea.

Klopp was a constant thorn in Guardiola's side during their time as rivals in the Bundesliga, with his Borussia Dortmund team overcoming the Catalan's Bayern Munich four times in eight meetings.

"For me", City midfielder Yaya Toure said, "it's nearly a "final" of the Premier League because I think it's going to be a similar kind of football".

"We knew that they have top players, individuals who can change the game whenever they want, but it's never just the defenders, it's the team that defends well and we played brilliantly", he continued.

Liverpool got off to a flawless start in the match as Wijnaldum leaped brilliantly and outjumped Manchester City defenders to score a powerful goal.

Good morning and welcome to our update feed as we build up to this afternoon's Premier League clash at Anfield between Liveropool and Manchester City.

His team have collected 13 points from 18 while Philippe Coutinho has been injured and, as the Brazilian nears fitness, so Liverpool have emerged as formidable challengers to Chelsea. "We love playing against the best".

Even if Liverpool fail to starve Aguero of the ball, they can still recover.

San Francisco's season from hell will conclude next Sunday, when the Seattle Seahawks travel to Levi's Stadium. "It's disgusting . But numerous young players feel like the game Saturday provided an example that will follow them throughout their careers.

Liverpool's unpredictability and balance in attack is its greatest threat. If the home side can manipulate his position and put him under pressure, they can keep him relatively quiet.

"He is back and a good striker, obviously", said Klopp. "That's the biggest challenge in this game".

Especially as City did not miss him throughout his absence.

"It is nice to think about what you can do in the game and what you want". Expect them to give Liverpool a run for their money, but the visitors have the cutting edge. Furthermore, his presence was hardly felt in losses to Chelsea and Tottenham earlier this season.

"They did their homework and recognised that City were going to try and play it out from the back".

The Belgian has grasped his chance to impress boss Jurgen Klopp while Sturridge's injury woes have blighted his progress over the last two seasons, but Origi sees it more as a partnership rather than a rivalry.

They have only managed two goals in those eight away matches and not scored a few times in any of their last 17 Premier League away fixtures since a 3-3 draw at Newcastle on New Year's Day 2015. The 19-year-old is tipped to reach great heights and the early signs are enormous.

"We adjusted a little bit at half-time, scored a wonderful third goal and then Daniel closed the game". The 20-year-old is devastatingly effective. I have had much more hard situations in my life than being second in a very, very hard league. His goals-to-minutes ratio is incredible.
