Brazil's Philippe Coutinho right celebrates with Brazil's Marquinhos center after scoring his side's second goal

Although there was a lengthy delay as Ederson was treated on the pitch, the Brazilian's injuries are thought to be relatively minor, with Pep Guardiola confirming no bones were broken in the incident. It is so important for us to feel that for our central defenders, with long balls, we have one guy to help us.

He collided with Mane as both chased down a ball floated over the top of City's defence, with Ederson winning the race and connecting with his head. Hopefully he can come back as soon as possible.

The Argentine scored the opener as City walloped the Reds 5-0.

"The thing that stood out for me was his relationship with the players, how close he seems to bond with the players on and off the field".

"Obviously we want to do well in four, so it is very hard to do it in the four".

City is unbeaten in 12 Premier League games, their best run under Guardiola, while Argentina striker Aguero is now the outright leading non-European goalscorer in Premier League history with 124 goals.

Klopp revealed in his post-match media conference that Mane is very upset about his red card which will see the Senegal global serve a three-game ban in the Premier League.

City have taken 10 points from their opening four league matches and De Bruyne said: "I think we are playing good".

"In the end it is a red card and I am sure enough people will find enough reasons to say it the right decision and we can not change it anymore".

Midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum admitted the visitors did not respond well after the red card.

Players are always going to challenge themselves for places, but in tense matches, the Catalan boss needs to identify players he can mould in his system to bring out the best in them, for the betterment of the team.

Liverpool just caved in, inexplicably and so out of character for a Klopp side, at the first instance of adversity and looked more and more like a team waiting to board the next bus back to Merseyside. "What a fright! Thanks for all your messages of support", he said.

"A very unlucky situation".
