The Big Match Tactical View: Liverpool v Manchester City

Ovie Ejaria signs a contract extension with Liverpool Football Club

Pep: Don't see red again!

Manchester City has lost both of the team's last two games against Liverpool. "So things are looking really good at Ibrox and now I'm desperate for us to go and show the real Rangers on the road".

Last season's four meetings between the clubs generated 18 goals and the Rangers boss believes it will be another open and entertaining contest. Liverpool winger Salah has made a more modest start to 2018-19, certainly in comparison to last season's 44-goal campaign, with just three goals to date.

'An option is to stay back for 90 minutes, wait and defend as best as possible, and hope God can help us from above.

Levein was disappointed that the slack start undermined what he felt was generally a competitive display from his team.

When this Rangers side leave Govan, there seems to be a nervousness to go out and play their real game.

Steven Gerrard's away form with Rangers is something he's told his Rangers players to get improving.

The Liverpool vs Manchester City Premier League match will be played at Anfield in Liverpool.

Every match is different. "We are going up in the table little by little giving us a better position for our objective". We need them to support us. "To show our quality and work, then together we can be happy like today".

"There is more pressure on Hearts now because people are tipping them to win something".

"They are a top team and to get a clean sheet at Anfield is something all of the team and we as defenders are really proud of".

I know we are less than 10 games in, but I welcome the fact that Hearts, Hibs, Livingston and Kilmarnock are all doing well and sitting above the Old Firm.

"They had more chances, we didn't have a shot on target".

"It was a tactical battle today and I'm proud of all the teams as it was a real physical battle and everyone put a shift in for the team and did their job for the team. We know what we're capable of as a team and we're quietly confident in our abilities and we want to go and enjoy challenging other teams and showing how good we are". Thankfully it's gone well at the start and we want to keep it going.

"But a lot of players deserve a break and we need to get a lot of players back up to speed".

After receiving excellent support from the people "upstairs" during the summer transfer window, he changed his squad and brought in around a dozen players. Pep's teams are best in that and I can admit that easily because it's so obvious.
