Sadio Mane deserved to see red but he shouldn't be banned

Man City's Ederson could return just days after Mane collision

Man City's Ederson could return just days after Mane collision

The Premier League returned from the global break with a mouthwatering clash between Manchester City and Liverpool at the Etihad.

Klopp, whose side went into the game unbeaten in their three previous games and having beaten Arsenal 4-0 last time out, said he had bitten his tongue so as not to also be sent to the stands.

Klopp's City counterpart Pep Guardiola agreed the complexion and balance of the game had been transformed by the red card.

De Bruyne, in comments published by the British press yesterday, said, "The guys who have come in have a very physical quality, they are very strong, very pacy".

Graeme Souness admits it will take some time to see whether Liverpool have been psychologically damaged after last weekend's 5-0 loss at Manchester City.

"It happens in any sport, sometimes there is a certain moment or occasion when things happen the wrong way".

Ederson's face after Sadio Mané booted him on Saturday. But from a player, and I've been in that situation, the chance to join Barcelona would be enormous for him.

"We never appealed the red card, only the length of the suspension".

The second City goal, which essentially sealed the outcome, wasn't exactly a function of playing a man down. "I want more from Yaya, more from everyone".

"There was not even a percentage of Sadio which wanted to put the goalkeeper in danger". I find it weird that Jurgen Klopp is going for players like Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Thomas Lemar, yet it's absolutely clear they need a central defender and possibly a goalkeeper.

"Lovren was on the bench and I always think if you are on the bench then you should be fit enough to play, so I can't understand why Klavan played".

The Merseysiders fell to a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Los Rojiblancos, despite taking the lead that night, and Klopp warned Sevilla's much-changed squad that his players were much more prepared to take them on at Anfield. That means he could be free to play in the Champions League if his facial wounds heal.
