Steven Gerrard: Rangers have blown the title race wide open


City had to use another coach for their journey home. Both sides have been playing some scintillating football at the start of the season, and this match should certainly live up to the billing.

'But we need to look at our away form. I thought my players were absolutely brilliant again for the majority of that game. Why should our fans have to protect our bus? "I'm just disappointed. There is frustration feeling that you could have done so much better". This striker's average shots per match have fallen from 3.44 to 2.96, yet the percentage of those shots that hit the target has risen quite dramatically from 36.6 per cent to 45.3 per cent. That is what they should do. I spoke to the Doc this morning but he didn't know.

Playmaker Kevin De Bruyne could make a surprise early return to action after returning to training earlier this week. He is also eligible for Scotland but was told he would struggle to get a game.

Chelsea joined Manchester City and Liverpool at the Premier League summit on Sunday as Riyad Mahrez blazed a late penalty over the bar when presented with a golden chance to end his team's Anfield hoodoo.

Asked if people saying Liverpool had worked out how to beat City were correct, Guardiola said: "Good - congratulations".

City midfielder Silva said: "They bought a few players".

City were beaten 3-0 in that Champions League quarter-final first leg after conceding three times in the space of 19 minutes in the first half. "They are a top side".

The Premier League's two title favorites huffed and puffed but, ultimately, neither team was able to blow the house down at Anfield.

The Minister of Finance, Mrs Zainab Ahmed, says President Muhammadu Buhari has performed well and deserves to be re-elected in 2019.

It is Liverpool's second successive match against a probable title rival after last weekend's draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, which lived up to its billing.

He said: "I'm delighted". In the last 15 minutes they had two big chances and scored a goal.

"His performances have been really, really good".

"We have to credit Rangers for giving Ryan the opportunity and also thank Liverpool for letting us use him, because at the moment it's working for both of us".

"Now we will have three days together until we play City and make the boys aware of what was wrong. Liverpool have started so well, they have the same points us, but we were expecting that all along". "It didn't look too serious, so there's a chance but we don't know". We will recover and then we will come back strong again'.

Liverpool, who remain unbeaten in their last 18 home games against City, came out roaring and dominated the opening 10 minutes but Pep Guardiola's visiting side weathered that early storm and were the more risky after the break.

Jurgen Klopp has tended to get the better of Pep Guardiola in their recent battles. Then it can work. I'm sure the supporters are going to be going to Ibrox in good spirits.

In team news, Naby Keita is the only doubt for the Reds.
