Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp: "The season so far-wise, points-wise in the Premier League, has been really successful". After a win and a defeat against PSG and Napoli respectively, the Reds, surely, had the respite of successive wins to look forward to against the Serbs.

Liverpool midfielders Jordan Henderson and Naby Keita are both in line for a return to action following their respective hamstring injuries. "We have to make sure we really don't forget what kind of a good situation we are in".

The Reds put in one of their worst performances under Klopp as they lost 2-0 to Red Star in Belgrade and they'll be looking to put things right at Anfield this weekend.

"You will never score a goal against a team like Fulham if you go to win the game with the wrong attitude and think about scoring, scoring, scoring".

"After the Huddersfield game, I told them, 'Listen, I am great, I'm a fantastic coach.' I did a fantastic job with my staff and the analysts because everything we expected, we found it during the game".

'I'd love to say Hendo would have changed the whole game against Red Star but the whole game was unusual.

"You have to remember our competitors are champions of last year and two years ago, and a refreshed Arsenal and Tottenham and Manchester United are still there - but we go for everything". The football is good, a lot of things are really good, they caused City problems in the Carabao Cup. He made four changes from the team that beat Red Star 4-0 at home - not all by choice - and some of the second-string players did not perform well. "Now everyone has started again [after last season]".

"Liverpool are a unsafe team to play against, and there's no better front-three in the country at nicking possession, and indeed the midfield three behind them". I'm not going to stay in our box and wait for 0-0; it sometimes happens, but it's many times you don't find any result. We need to be more motivated and be ready for a fight, be ready for battle.

The 28-year-old is back in contention for the Sunday's Premier League clash with Fulham. City have to play Manchester United at home, Chelsea face a hard trip to Crystal Palace, and Liverpool host the bottom-of-the-table Fulham on Sunday noontime kick-off. The boys looked much more mature, but not in the last game.

They have conceded at least two goals in nine of their 11 Premier League games and there seems no easy fix to their defensive issues, given the lack of summer spending on reinforcements in that area.

No side has ever conceded more goals at this stage of a Premier League season than Fulham and they are the only side in the division yet to keep a clean sheet. In the Premier League, that class has shone through four assists for Fulham.
