Fabinho on adaptation to Liverpool, helpful team-mates & ‘demanding’ Jurgen Klopp

Fans of Liverpool react as the Manchester City team bus arrives prior to the UEFA Champions League Quarter Final first leg match between Liverpool and Manchester City at Anfield Mahrez miss leaves City, Liverpool and Chelsea all level at top

City's xG total from their opening eight matches this season is 21.5 - a rise on the figure of 17.5 in the corresponding fixtures last season.

That Jürgen Klopp's side came through the period with an unbeaten record in the league intact - and a valuable Champions League win over PSG, too - is encouraging for Wijnaldum.

Liverpool summer signing Fabinho insists he is adapting to his new club, and English football, despite still not making his Premier League debut.

"We want to create something, but they wait when you make a mistake".

"Liverpool have to play their best team against Brighton at home and it's nervous until the end at say 1-0".

Mahrez is again featured in the MEN, with Stuart Brennan writing: "Last season Pep Guardiola twice tried to slug it out with Liverpool at Anfield - and lost twice, conceding seven goals".

The Blues were 3-0 winners against Southampton at St Mary's on Sunday after Eden Hazard scored his seventh goal of the Premier League season to hoist the Blues to second place in the table. The former Borussia Dortmund boss believes the Gunners can be contenders for the title in a wide-open title race.

Virgil van Dijk has said Manchester City's caution at Anfield was a sign of respect for Liverpool and promised to learn from the foul that nearly cost Jürgen Klopp's team their unbeaten start to the Premier League season.

In the first match of the day, Unai Emery's Arsenal turned on the style on the banks of the River Thames to climb into the Premier League's top four. Tottenham are sitting fifth, just two points adrift from the top and behind their north London rivals only on goal difference.

Quoted in the Mirror, he said: 'It won't affect me at all. Arsenal are two points behind, yes? And we hope that they come back healthy and play these easy competitions, the Premier League, the Champions League and all this. "It looks like they are in a good shape", said Klopp. With Pep Guardiola likely to welcome back Kevin De Bruyne from injury after the global break, City's attacking options from midfield will enjoy a significant boost.

"It is an unbelievable challenge to face Man City and as the last game it makes the challenge even bigger", Klopp said.

Both managers approached the game as if it was an important one in the title race.

Despite all the rich attacking talent on display, Liverpool and City cancelled each other out in a cagey encounter, mustering just four shots on target between them.
