Liverpool set to appeal length of Mané's three-match ban

Ederson, who reached the ball just in front of the pacy Senegalese winger, was left with no choice but to lead with his head in the challenge, as he had stepped outside of his box.

After the Manchester City match, Mane apologised to Ederson via Facebook, saying: "I hope and wish Ederson a quick recovery".

While revealing that Ederson did not suffer a broken bone as a result of the incident, Guardiola refused to condemn Mane following the incident, realizing that the player did not intend on causing harm. Coutinho is likely to be in the squad but may have to settle for a place on the bench. I never thought it would happen but only because I am used to it to things like this.

Two goals from Gabriel Jesus, another brace from Leroy Sane and a cool finish from Sergio Aguero gave Pep Guardiola's side an important win, but one incident in particular was the biggest talking point last weekend.

Liverpool were torn apart by Manchester City - and their failure to sign Virgil can Dijk was one of the key reasons why, according to a report. I saw the goalie already and obviously it's not that bad. "They have players who can change games and make chances", he said.

"To play a game at home and away, you have to play in a different way than when you're playing in the group".

"It was an accident". His eyes are on the ball, it's ridiculous.

That should be the case as the goalkeeper tweeted that he was fine.

Pictures of the former Benfica goalkeeper showed a series of stitches in the side of his face covered by a huge dressing.

"There is strong competition, everyone wants to play". The German has struggled to establish himself after arriving in the summer of 2016 and although he was given a surprise rare outing in the 4-0 win over Arsenal last month Simon Mignolet remains first choice in the Premier League. I don't blame the referee for the decision.

Klopp had targeted Southampton's Dutch defender Virgil van Dijk during the transfer window but was unable to get his club to agree to a deal.
