Man City star De Bruyne could be on the bench against Chelsea

       In an interview with Sky Sports Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson played down talk of nerves creeping into their Pr

Their victory over Everton sent them to top of the Premier League table, though they have played a game more than Liverpool.

Pep Guardiola's side has been on something of a resurgence lately in their bid to retain their crown while Chelsea's form has been patchy at best but do find themselves coming off a 5-0 victory over Huddersfield.

Last season Salah smashed the record for most scored in a 38-game Premier League season last year - with 32 - and was subsequently crowned Premier League Player of the Season, PFA Players' Player of the Year, and FWA Footballer of the Year. With Chelsea historically having proved a thorn in City's side, Sunday's clash will be by no means a walkover for the reigning champions. Salah, in particular, looked out of sorts, and even Firmino wasn't at his usual best in stitching the play together. Good organisation defensive, offensive.

Jurgen Klopp said that he and his players were "not happy" with the recent levels of performances as Liverpool reclaimed first place in the Premier League. "We have options in midfield, but maybe they have more options than us". On that note, Pep is desperate to get his charges in the right frame of mind.

Lallana believes that past defeats, such as the Champions League final loss against Real Madrid, have helped to make this Liverpool group stronger as a whole. We want to play convincing football - we want to perform.

'Powerhouse' Actor Albert Finney Dead at 82
It's nothing to shake a stick at, but to put it in perspective, that's roughly half of what NCIS star Mark Harmon makes in a year. He famously played Ebenezer Scrooge in the 1970 musical adaptation of the Charles Dickens classic " Scrooge ".

City will still be without defenders Benjamin Mendy and Vincent Kompany, who are recovering from injuries.

City reached 100 points in 2017-18 and at the current pace, it seems this year's title winners may need to post a points mark comfortably in the 90s if they are to prevail.

"In the first match we were lucky to score and then in the second half - especially in the first 20, 25 minutes - they gave us spaces so it was a little bit easier". The Italian, however, is under no illusions as to the task facing them this Sunday.

"You know very well that the midfield of Manchester City is one of the best in the world, not only Fernandinho but also Kevin De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva, David Silva". I expect at least one red card in the match and the pessimist in me thinks it will be a City one. In that match we defended really very well because they had only three goal opportunities, no more.

The Blues were awful at Bournemouth, in a 4-0 defeat, but bounced back to win 5-0, albeit against rock-bottom Huddersfield in a game notable for the way new boy Gonzalo Higuain and Eden Hazard linked up successfully. It should be noted that unlike last time out, Chelsea now have a proven goalscorer in their ranks in the form of Gonzalo Higuain, who netted twice against Huddersfield and will be looking to continue his rich vein of form. Technically there is nothing better in Europe, so it will be really hard to be in control of the match, but I think that is the area that will decide the game, more than the strikers. We talked about this, we want to be at the top, top four, " Pogba said.
