Key Quotes

Manuel Pellegrini: “Sergio is fit – he’s ready to come back. David (Silva) continues with some small sprain in his ankle so it’s a risk for him to play. Unfortunately, Samir Nasri is also injured. (Wilfried) Bony and Vincent Kompany are also injured and will miss this game against Liverpool."

Yaya Toure: “Now I’m ready to get back to work and all my focus is on Saturday. We have a fantastic game to play against Liverpool and we need to get back to winning games, though we are expecting a hard match.”

Sergio Aguero: “I do hope I can play in this game. I’m doing everything in my power to get to the match in top condition.”

Jürgen Klopp: “I’m looking forward to the game. Two weeks is long enough after Crystal Palace. Now we have the next chance.”

Daniel Sturridge: “I’m fit and ready to go and it’s going to be a great time for me. It’s been great under the new manager. I’ve been back training for the past couple of days and I was training when he first arrived.”
