Liverpool must be vigilant, Man City getting greedy in scoring goals

Wednesday, 02 Oct, 2019

The win lifts Leicester to third place on 14 points ahead of their visit to Liverpool, while Steve Bruce's side are second from bottom and will host Manchester United next.

The 28-year-old, who now has two goals in seven league games this season, featured for the duration of the game. "Last season he started to struggle towards the end of the season".

City's Saturday opponents, of course, each have one appearance in top spot - with the exception of Norwich, whose eye-catching start to their Premier League return has seen them twice given top billing.

While City's win ensured they remain five points behind Liverpool, Everton are still in the bottom half after what was their fourth defeat in their last five games.

City's domination of Everton is increasingly undeniable.

"Like David Silva, quickest to 200 Premier League wins".

What Guardiola said referred to Everton's fierce resistance.

A poor clearance from the Brazil midfielder led to the equaliser from Dominic Calvert-Lewin, following Gabriel Jesus' opener, and City had goalkeeper Ederson to thank for vital saves to keep out Yerry Mina. We could have killed the game in the first half, first 20 (minutes) - we had a lot of chances - but didn't, compared to the game against Watford where we had five chances and we scored five goals.

"We have enough players to fit this problem", he said.

The reigning champions opened with a 5-0 win over West Ham, followed by a dramatic 2-2 draw with Tottenham which also earned top billing and sparked extensive discussion of VAR after Gabriel Jesus had a late victor disallowed.

"It is still early in the season and there are still (more than) 90 points to play for".

Coach Frank Lampard assesses his team continues to show significant progress. Lampard hopes that the increased productivity will help his team against Lille OSC in the Champions League group phase on Thursday morning (3/10). The only disappointment is we don't have more goals. This is good for increasing the confidence of the players, "he said".
