"We will see if he can play".

Pep Guardiola has surprisingly revealed that Manchester City might be able to call on Kevin De Bruyne when his side visits Anfield tomorrow.

Just seven games into the Premier League season, no knockout blow can be landed this weekend.

'After today's game we have two weeks, then we go straight into games against Chelsea, in the Premier League, and Juventus, in the Champions League, with two recovery days in between, ' Mourinho said in his matchday programme notes ahead of the game against Newcastle at Old Trafford.

"Nobody expected 10 goals after five, six or seven games (last season), so it was a nice surprise". They are a top side even if we win, the way they play. They are still getting results in the Premier League despite their players not really hitting their stride individually or collectively.

"We try (not to concede) but sometimes you can not", Pep explained.

City have taken extra security measures, fitting cameras to the coach, while some travelling fans are considering lining the route to the stadium to protect the coach. When somebody's telling me, "Good luck for Sunday", I think always, "Unfortunately, we need it".

"There are loads of reasons why the games didn't go our way".

"It's very tough, probably the toughest away game of the season in the Premier League", admitted City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan, who worked under Klopp for four years at Borussia Dortmund.

"Why should our fans have to protect our bus?"

Although Liverpool beat City last season in three of the clubs' four meetings, it was Guardiola who lifted two trophies, while the charismatic German was left empty-handed. Having played against Aguero when I was at Tottenham, I can assure you he's a complete nightmare to play against.

"I would like the police to go home at 4.30 with their families, drinking a beer and loving the show, that is what they should do".

"Manchester City were so dominant last season because they had long spells where they were near their peak", Lawrenson told BBC Sport.

But come Sunday, they can count on the intangibles of Anfield on top of the talent of a bolstered squad and inspirational manager to keep City waiting for a win there and strike first blood in the title race.
