Get 25/1 Special Price on Liverpool to beat Sevilla

Liverpool were left facing a huge uphill battle when Mane was dismissed for raising his boot in a challenge for a bouncing ball with goalkeeper Ederson, who was taken off on a stretcher after prolonged treatment, but later confirmed to have escaped serious injury.

The tackle, adjudged to have been a red card offence by referee Jon Moss, looked like it had caused a lot of damage on first viewing, with many suspecting the keeper to have at best been a little dazed and at worst suffered a concussion or broken bones.

He said, "We had all we needed at 11v11".

The 25-year-old was back at Melwood for the first time this season after the international break, and Klopp admitted he has some work to do on the training pitch before being considered for selection.

"But the decisive decision in the whole game was the red card".

"After that we played very well, took control of the game".

Jurgen Klopp believes the type of competition for places he has at Anfield is essential in the Premier League and can contribute to a successful season for Liverpool. Leroy Sane replaced Jesus around the 57th minute and then went on to score the fourth and the fifth for the men in blue, the latter in particular, a stunning curler from outside the area. "Yes, we can be really good, but if you don't finish the situations you create you have a problem". "We have to adapt".

Pep Guardiola's City collected just 11 points in games against Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool and Everton as they finished third, 15 points off the pace last season.

"With his quality, his commitment without the ball. What would be your advice?" We play on Wednesday, we play on Saturday, we play, play, play.

The Brazil international, who was the subject of three failed bids from Barcelona during the recent transfer window, has missed the opening three games of the new Premier League campaign with a back injury. That's why I think he could be key.

Liverpool next face Spanish giants Sevilla while Manchester City take on Dutch league's Feyenoord in the Champions League group stages.
