Man City make £45m offer

It has been Sergio Auguero's time to shine of late, with four goals in City's last three games to take his tally for the season to 13, from 17 matches.

Liverpool have managed to take an inconsistent start and turn it into a very strong season as they are now battling near to the top of the league.

I don't think Liverpool will be the first English team to beat Guardiola's charges this season - but given City's poor record at Anfield, I can't see them winning either. Sadio Mane has been off-colour in recent weeks and he needs to step up.

"We had flashes of that in the game at the Etihad".

"Guardiola believes it is vital to secure back-up for Fernandinho, who he described this week as having played "a million minutes" already this term". The teams that created the most trouble to Man City are the teams are the bottom of the league. City have never beaten Liverpool in the Shiekh Mansour era and will want to change that in what has been a season to remember so far.

And now two Premier League stars have revealed they turned down Liverpool in 2016 in favour of their rivals. Once they have a player in their sights, as the Merseysiders found with Javier Mascherano and Luis Suarez to Barca plus Xabi Alonso to Real, it is only a matter of time before Liverpool is swapped for La Liga. "But Liverpool was the team that up until the sending-off you were like, 'there is something here'".

This will be the first time Liverpool turn out after Philippe Coutinho's £142m move to Barcelona.

City would hope to continue their impressive run in the league when they visit Anfield.

Asked what made his new side an attractive destination for a player who was also the subject of interest from Chelsea, the former Celtic man replied: "I think the size of the club, the fans, the players, the manager, the whole package here is unbelievable".

"And then you've got (Roberto) Firmino, you've got (Adam) Lallana as well, who's just coming back to form".

Salah contributed to goals scored in all the seven matches in December, exceptagainst West Bromich, which ended as a stalemate. Sometimes there are spells when you score and don't score, but his effort for the team is good and he always tries.

Until this season, the Argentine who impressed so much at Valencia had failed to transfer his style of play to Manchester City. He is constantly running behind you, and as right back or a centre back, you do not want to run that way the whole game. "I don't think it should affect us at all". He had one chance and scored.

"Obviously there's a lot of talk before the game about whether I'd do it or not so to get that goal early on in the game as well, it was a great achievement".

Virgil van Dijk made a dream debut after scoring a late victor against the Toffees and the Dutch worldwide is fully expected to keep his place this weekend. "So it makes you work harder".
