Eddie Howe says Bournemouth can make 'history' by beating Liverpool at Anfield

Otherwise, a loss could see them drop to the sixth position at the worst, should Manchester United and Arsenal win their respective games during the gameweek.

I saw none of that in their victory against Bournemouth. We will try. We have to prepare well. The Toffees' form means Silva is under real pressure to keep his job at Goodison Park, while Javi Gracia has prospered as his replacement at Vicarage Road. Salah, in particular, looked out of sorts, and even Firmino wasn't at his usual best in stitching the play together.

"I want him to sustain that for a long time". They aren't something you should worry about.

City have one or two players of their own who fit that description, though Sarri does not believe it will be a game of many chances and reckons it might not be decided by the forwards.

The other effect of having Salah out wide is to strike fear into the hearts of the opponents.

Always in life people think about what we could have done.

However, the unmarked Mane planted a simple header wide, Salah hit the crossbar after another neat interchange with Firmino, who shot straight at Boruc with Virgil Van Dijk nearly certain to score from a square pass, and Alexander-Arnold was denied by Boruc. When he does, it makes a huge difference. Seven minutes was all it took for the answer to be delivered, with Sadio Mane firing the home side into an early lead on a sunny Saturday evening at Anfield.

Kristaps Porzingis: Everybody has welcomed me with open arms
Porzingis averaged 22.7 points and 6.6 rebounds per game before his injury last season (Feb. 6). Kristaps Porzingis and the Mavericks are talking about a long-term deal.

Keita was given his preferred role in midfield as Liverpool switched to their 4-3-3, and the former RB Leipzig star put in a complete performance in midfield. Fabinho spots danger all over the pitch and breaks it all up, while Georginio Wijnaldum was brilliant on the ball - creatively and in support. That amounts to one goal every 14.5 games. Everything just functioned well. However, a victory over closest rivals Liverpool triggered a run of six wins in all competition where City scored 28 goals without reply.

As well as having record-signing Miguel Almiron available for the first time after the Paraguayan striker had his work permit accepted, Newcastle could have a triple fitness boost with Paul Dummett, Mo Diame and Ki Sung-yueng all potentially ready for the trip to Molineux, although Jonjo Shelvey is unlikely to make it in time. It's my agent who deals with this and for the moment he hasn't called me. With Alexander-Arnold coming back, Klopp can now push Milner forward again.

Maurizio Sarri has dismissed suggestions Chelsea are still in the title race, claiming this season would be a straight "fight between Liverpool and Manchester City".

Bayern Munich will be a tough tie but they are not exactly flying in the Bundesliga.

Meanwhile, behind him, centre-back Virgil van Dijk was at his imperious best, winning 100 per cent of his duels and leading the team with 107 passes when the ball was at his feet.

Dejan Lovren, however, remains sidelined for the home side, along with fellow defender Joe Gomez. Jordan Henderson was back on the bench after injury.
