Jurgen Klopp wants Liverpool to sign a creative playmaker this season

Jurgen Klopp wants Liverpool to sign a creative playmaker this season

There will be much discussion in Liverpool fan circles about the state of Jurgen Klopp's attackers after they drew another blank against Manchester City. "For Salah it was the first one so we will see in seven or eight years".

In nine combined Premier League appearances, Milner has scored one and provided two assists, as well as making 10 interceptions and 51 recoveries to date. It's too early, I don't know. We tried to win but at the end we need to be happy - I need to be happy - that we didn't lose it because of the penalty.

"If we look at the rest, Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Fabinho and even Gini Wijnaldum to some extent, while they're very good midfielders, they've not got an abundance of goals in them". Their century haul of points last season has ensured expectations remain incredibly high this term but simply retaining the title for the first time - something no club has managed for a decade - would be achievement enough.

Despite all the rich attacking talent on display, Liverpool and City cancelled each other out in a cagey encounter, mustering just four shots on target between them.

"If somebody had told me after eight fixtures, 20 points, I would say "yes".

Good evening! Welcome to the Live Updates for Liverpool Vs Man City in a top of the table clash.

Liverpool defender Andy Robertson reckons it would be foolish to dismiss both Chelsea and Arsenal from this seasons Premier League title race.

They are unbeaten in the top flight and, though they were knocked out of the Carabao Cup by Chelsea, also recorded an impressive 3-2 victory over Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.

There is confidence around Anfield after the team matched City and second place Chelsea, who have both had easier runs over the same period.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp backs Arsenal to challenge for the title. So stick around and I'll give you instant highlights of the goals as they go in, along with the usual pre-match chat.

But with the worldwide break now meaning it's two weeks before Liverpool play again, Milner could only miss as few as four matches.
