Steven Gerrard: Rangers must make statement against Hearts

Trent Alexander-Arnold is relishing the prospect of Liverpool coming up against Premier League champions Manchester City on Sunday and is aiming to help the team deliver the ideal response to their Napoli disappointment. Liverpool got the better of Man City over two legs last season in the Champions League and beat the Citizens at Anfield in the league.

Fulham's powerful Serbian forward Aleksandar Mitrovic also had a number of half-chances but was unable to get any clear shots in on goal, with perhaps his best attempt a thumped volley over the bar from outside the area. If we do not entertain the people, why do we play it?

The Liverpool legend saw his side claim a rollicking 3-1 Europa League win over Rapid Vienna on Thursday and is now determined to reduce the eight-point deficit on the Edinburgh outfit.

"Liverpool are one of the two greatest teams in England and that's why we tried to be close with them in terms of many, many things, and we are closer".

Pre-match talk that a positive result for City or Liverpool would make them favourites to win the title now looks premature, with Chelsea the big winners of the weekend having thumped Southampton earlier in the day.

"It's too early to be thinking about the title, we know it is tough to win", he said.

Klopp has been described as Pep Guardiola's nemesis but the German insisted there is no magic formula to beating City.

Sterling has received hostile receptions and struggled in games back at Anfield since leaving the Reds for City in 2015.

Fulham pressed forward in the opening minutes as they looked for their first win over Arsenal since January 2012, and Argentine midfielder Luciano Vietto very almost beat Gunners keeper Bernd Leno in the second minute.

Hearts have really lit up the league race, and I think it's wonderful to see such an open table.

The Guinean midfielder stayed overnight in a Naples hospital after suffering a back spasm. "It will be hard work, no problem with that, everybody knows it".
