"It was a decision I made and hopefully it will be the last time I make that decision at that time".

Jurgen Klopp's side have started the season well domestically, accumulating 20 points from their first eight games, and now sit joint-top of the table alongside Manchester City and Chelsea ahead of the global break.

"To be honest I have never yet been into the city of Liverpool, except to the team hotel with the rest of the squad". I don't think they have been tested that much really, and they lost their two games against Manchester City and Chelsea - although they were unlucky against Chelsea.

We won the European Championship that year and there's no better feeling than winning something with your country. I am happy. I think I'm relatively close to the first eleven. We have a lot of young talent, and even though I wasn't part of the World Cup squad, I can see everyone is developing really well now and if we can keep progressing over the years, there will be more success down the line.

"In terms of Arsenal's form, they beat Fulham at the weekend and previous to that they were lucky against Watford and Everton, while only beating Newcastle and Cardiff by the odd goal".

Shaqiri is battling with a host of exciting forwards at Liverpool for a place in Klopp's side, with Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane ahead of him in the pecking order.

Southgate also had his players work on their evasive skills with a game similar to tag and Maddison in particular enjoyed the chance to show off his agility.

"It's a long, long way to go so I don't think anyone is getting too carried away".

It's great living there, I haven't got any kids or anything yet, so I just wanted to experience living in west London.

They're playing an attractive brand of football and Eden Hazard has been the standout player in the Premier League thus far.

"The players told me it is somewhat hard to go there, as people come up to you pretty directly". I think Manchester City are doing what you would expect them to do and Arsenal are around where you would expect them to be.
