Manchester City and Liverpool 2/1 to draw Saturday's Premier League clash

Premier League side Liverpool want to put behind the heavy Premier League loss to Manchester City and bounce back during their Champions League game against Sevilla on Wednesday, goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has said.

The Reds new signing Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain came on to replace Mohamed Salah at half-time and just eight minutes into the second half, Gabriel Jesus scored his second of the day and the third for Manchester City.

On the incident, Guardiola said: "It was one game at 11 vs 11, it was equal, we both had chances, but the game was equal. You have to change the way of playing if one man is sent off".

City were 1-0 up at that stage thanks to a Sergio Aguero goal and they soon made their numerical advantage count when Jesus headed in a Kevin de Bruyne cross. Fast forward to Saturday, following the worldwide break, and it became a case of Liverpool being trampled upon and Manchester City carrying all the weight. "I do not know if it was a red card". He started on the right side of a back five, then moved to the left of a back three and finished the game as a defensive midfielder. "Of course, it had a big influence on the game today". City could go top of the table with a win, but Liverpool are no slouches and excel in these important games.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp insisted that the foul that led to Sadio Mane's dismissal was an "accident" rather than a deliberate violent action.

"Sometimes it's impossible after the worldwide break - different plans, different positions, they played all over the world, I don't like this but we can not change it - but you saw City struggled also a little bit. If he doesn't have the injury it's a yellow card". I think in the first moment when all the people were on the pitch it looked like this.

We're kicking off with Harry Kane, who scored his 100th and 101st goals for Tottenham against Everton.
