Klopp gives injury updates ahead of Bournemouth clash

Kevin De Bruyne and Gabriel Jesus celebrate Man City's 2-0 win over Everton

After Manchester City returned to the top of the Premier League in midweek, the pressure is again firmly on Liverpool in the title race.

They probably won't be top of the pile when they kick off their home game against Chelsea on Sunday, however, as Liverpool have what should be a reasonably straightforward home game against Bournemouth on Saturday. Neither have featured regularly for City over the past 18 months, so Pep Guardiola will be well adapted to their absence.

Following back-to-back draws against Leicester City and West Ham United, Liverpool saw title rivals Manchester City leapfrog them into the pole position on the table.

The midfielder was added to the reds Champions League squad earlier this week but the reds will likely need to progress to the last 4 of the competition before the Englishman could be back in a Liverpool shirt. We could have scored more, ' said Milner.

"Not only Fernandinho but also Kevin De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva, David Silva. Of course it was a long time ago that Liverpool don't win the league but I don't think that is the reason they play with more tension". "We want to play convincing football, we want to perform and that was the reaction we wanted to show". In that match we defender very well as they only had three opportunities on goal, no more. Defeats such as the 4-0 to Bournemouth late last month also suggests that they have an very bad long way to go, still, and the Italian coach was quick to point that out in the aftermath. City hosts Chelsea in the game of the week. The game on Sunday is a final for us. "If we are able to take these points, we are going to take a huge step forward".

Bournemouth, who were without main striker Callum Wilson, offered little in reply and will be concerned at once again losing heavily away from home against one of the Premier League's big six. Maurizio Sarri, Manager of Chelsea looks on ahead of the Carabao Cup Third Round match between Liverpool and Chelsea at Anfield on September 26, 2018 in Liverpool, England.

Instead he has kept a consistent focus on his own team's performances. "He played the previous two games, I preferred at Everton [for him to play a] few minutes", he explained. "It was clear we were not happy with the two performances". We don't underestimate anyone.

Jurgen Klopp has urged Liverpool's players to strap in for the ultimate race as he accepted Pep Guardiola's challenge to fight for the title. "I'm not buying that at all", the City manager said. "The doctor said, 'You are still infectious, stay away".

The Blues were terrible 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. I think it's normal to feel nervous.

"The good thing is we already know this".
