Press react to City victory — Gossip

Philippe Coutinho could play his first Liverpool game of the season against Sevilla in the Champions League.

United surrendered their 100 per cent record in a lively 2-2 draw at Stoke City after Pep Guardiola's City had trounced 10-man Liverpool 5-0 to replace their neighbours at the top for a few hours.

Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson is back in training with Manchester City, after a sickening collision with Liverpool's Sadio Mane on Saturday lunchtime.

Kompany's latest setback is his 15th injury in just five years and the 31-year-old will be hopeful of just a very short spell out on the sidelines this time round.

City continue their Champions League group stage adventure against Shaktar Donetsk next Tuesday as they look to win the competition for the first time in their history.

The summer signing wore a protective head guard in training, but is still unlikely to start on Wednesday. "Last season we won three which wasn't bad for the club, but we did not fight for the Premier League and we were not in the Champions League, so we have to be humble and take it step by step".

Romelu Lukaku put them ahead in the 58th minute, only for Choupo-Moting to equalise. Ederson is unlikely to play any part in City's Champions League tie with Feyenoord tonight. The top managers don't like it when they get the bad results.

"In the game everybody thought the goalkeeper was seriously injured".

"But the decision was he didn't play the last game and today he was not in the squad".

Former Chelsea striker Sutton admitted that he doesn't believe Liverpool can win the Premier League title with their current back four. Sometimes you have to get lucky.

Some hardcore Feyenoord supporters have built up a reputation as troublemakers, getting involved in skirmishes with the law and fans of other clubs.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will also be an option to replace Mane and the attacking strength in depth Klopp now has at his disposal should ensure the absence of his most potent attacking threat is not fatal to his side's hopes.

A successful wrongful dismissal claim would see the ban overturned, but that is highly unlikely.
