Man City's Kompany out of Liverpool clash with calf injury

12 Septembre 2017

Personally I would want and expect to see my players go for that all day long. Sometimes he forgets about his defensive duties but his pace gets him out of trouble.

The 5-0, when everything was said and done, was a fair reflection of City's dominamce against a side down to ten for much of the game, but Liverpool's problem wasn't Coutinho-and with a goal and call going differently in the early going, it could easily have been them easing to a 5-0 victory. "Yes, we can be really good, but if you don't finish the situations you create you have a problem". Any team would miss him, and those two do not fill me with confidence when he's not playing.

City and Liverpool drew this corresponding fixture 1-1 last season but it was a one-sided game on Saturday with Pep Guardiola's side the winners.

Referee Jonathan Moss deemed the challenge reckless and risky enough to merit a straight red card and the Brazilian received eight minutes of treatment before medical staff carried him off the field and straight to City's medical facility for checks.

Paul Mariner says Philippe Coutinho must honor his contract now that he'll remain with Liverpool.

"I was surprised when I saw Liverpool's starting line-up".

Liverpool have a strong recent record against City - winning four of the last six league clashes between the sides - and last lost to them in the league three years ago.

Coutinho, who has not played for Liverpool so far this season due a back injury, submitted a transfer request after the club received and rejected bids for him from Barcelona during the transfer window. They will realise it was a hard situation for everyone involved.

Even without Coutinho, I think Liverpool could get something on Saturday.

Guardiola said: "We play so high the goalkeeper has to play on the 18-yard box to help us with these forward balls".

"After the red card it was different - I know it's not easy to play against 10, it's easier but not easy", he said.

Kompany, who has been beset by fitness problems over the past few seasons, was injured while on duty with Belgium during the recent global break, but Guardiola said the centre back was not facing an extended spell on the sidelines. "We had to change something but they quietened us down very quickly".
