Man City keeper Ederson ready for Feyenoord clash despite horrific face injury

Liverpool's appeal to the English FA, over the three-match ban given to Sadio Mane's after he was sent off in Saturday's 5-0 defeat at Manchester City.

Unfortunately for the Dutch club he won't be able to add to that against Manchester City. Guardiola's side were bereft of defining results against the title contenders in his first year in England, although the manager and his players were adamant it was the outcome rather than standard of performance that differed here.

Liverpool appealed against the length of the ban, with both the player and boss Jurgen Klopp insisting the challenge was not intentional.

Jesus had a header from a curling De Bruyne cross from the left ruled out for offside but moments later the pair combined again in almost identical fashion to make it 2-0 at the break. "Of course, it's not easy to win a competition like the Champions League, but if you never try, you'll never win it".

There have been some despicable views on Sadio Mane's red card for his high-footed challenge on Manchester City's goalkeeper Ederson yesterday. Sergio Aguero came in for the suspended Raheem Sterling and John Stones replaced captain Vincent Kompany after he sustained an injury on international duty. As of now, Gomez should be Liverpool's first choice right back. "Mane didn't see him, he was looking at the ball but the impact was huge". He's a good dribbler and can shoot from distance, and his gas tank is endless which means he'll run for days.

Harry Kane's 100th Tottenham goal was the catalyst as Mauricio Pochettino's side eased to an impressive 3-0 win at Everton.

"It's hard in the Champions League", he said.

The BBC Sport website identified the Merseyside giants' failed bid to land the Holland centre-back as a principal factor in their limp showing at Etihad Stadium on Saturday. I don't blame the ref for the decision.

"The sending-off would have been enough", Souness said.

"We did it and, as I said after the game, it was a waste of time obviously".
