Manchester City's Raheem Sterling must handle Liverpool returns better - Pep Guardiola

A general view inside Wembley stadium during the Group B match of the UEFA Champions League between Tottenham Hotspur and FC Barcelona at Wembley Stadium

When Kenny Dalglish led the Reds to an 18th league title in 1989-90, Liverpool were streets ahead as England's most successful club.

Naby Keita was forced off in the first half of Liverpool's defeat to Napoli on Wednesday and therefore it would be a surprise to see him start here.

The mercurial Belgium global has been on the sidelines for the last month with a knee injury and was expected to spend another fortnight away from the action.

City were handed a boost as both Benjamin Mendy and Kevin De Bruyne trained with the squad.

Liverpool have drawn most of the plaudits for their start to the campaign but go into the match on a three-match winless run, with defeat and then a draw against Chelsea in cup and league before the 1-0 Champions League loss in Naples.

Manchester United have scored just 10 goals in seven Premier League games and their blunt forward line faces a challenge to break down Rafael Benitez's defence-minded Newcastle at Old Trafford on Saturday.

"But as a player there is not much more that you can achieve than playing these type of games, because when you play them or when the atmosphere is like that, you know it's a big thing".

Finally, it's not often we feature the Radio Times in this round-up, so here is a snippet of Simon Barnes' preview of today's game. For Salah, it was the first one, so we will see in seven or eight years. Since Jurgen took over he has a lot of weapons to attack on the counter and in set pieces and they take advantage of mistakes.

Liverpool will be looking to getting back to winning ways, having gone without a victory in their last three games in all competitions. I think they're better this season, as the results tell.

"The three guys in front connect really well and it's a top side".

"He's got a good touch but what I'm saying to you is you wouldn't say he's got the best touch, best awareness, best goalscorer".

"That's all we need to know".

"I'm hoping this is the game of the season, with everyone at their best".

"Not 100 per cent sure, he had a back spasm". I didn't say Mo should relax because he has to work hard, but that's what he is doing.
