Liverpool went from dishing out a humiliation to being on the receiving end of one.

Ragnar Klavan, another Klopp buy, from Augsburg, replaced Lovren for last Saturday's 5-0 thrashing at Manchester City. Liverpool seem to be getting better at the same facets of the game they were pretty good at: high pressing, forcing turnovers and quick release into space taking advantage of the speed of their forwards. Mane clattered into Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson and left him requiring stitches in his face.

"I didn't expect something different", Klopp said.

Yet the big concern must be that the defensive issues from two seasons ago have yet to be solved a couple of seasons later and it is a major concern heading into this Champions League campaign. Guardiola has also said Napoli are one of the three best sides in Europe in terms of style while the long trip to face Shakhtar Donetsk in Kharkiv in December could be tricky.

Crystal Palace manager Frank De Boer looks dejected during his team's defeat at Burnley.

A couple of goal droughts ended. If the forwards continue to take chances as they did on Saturday, City should get a lot nearer to top spot than they have done in the last few years. The Tottenham striker netted twice in a 3-0 win at Everton, and Christian Eriksen also found the target. "City are always playing like this".

"Sergio is insane about the goal", compatriot Nicolas Otamendi said.

Feyenoord may have beaten Heracles 4-2 in the Dutch Eredivisie over the weekend, but their opponents came dangerously close to scoring more goals - a fact that no doubt will play on coach Giovanni van Bronckhorst's mind. He was carried off the pitch before returning to the City bench in the second half. The Brazil forward was then substituted and his replacement, Sane, grabbed two goals as well.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp confirms Mohamed Salah was sent home from training
However, the defeat should be put into the context that they had matched City and were trailing only 0-1 when Sadio Mane was sent off.

Although there is little time for recovery ahead of Thursday morning's Champions League opener against Sevilla, Mignolet says a positive result can quickly put the Merseysiders back in the right mentality.

"It's important he wants to do that in all the games he plays". The West Ham boss desperately needs a victory in his team's first home match of the season.

Given his name contains roughly five syllables too many, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting is unlikely to spawn a catchy song among supporters. After Romelu Lukaku had fired United in front, Choupo-Moting scored again to deny United a fourth straight win.

He said beating the club's biggest rivals will be key to challenging for the Premier League title. "I have to get used to it sometimes".
