Media Watch: Liverpool boss praises City's hunger

Media Watch: Liverpool boss praises City's hunger
Saturday's media round-up is, of course, full of previews for Sunday's big game.

With Liverpool’s current form, the Blues’ injury issues - plus our record at Anfield, many writers and pundits believe the odds are stacking up in the Reds' favour -  but write off the champions at your peril!

Here's the best of this morning's features...


Four Four Two: 'Greedy City' impress Klopp

Reds' boss likes hungry Blues' attitude

It reads:“Do I like talking about Man City all the time? No. I am more than happy with what we did in the last couple of years but getting 100 points, then 98 points, and looking still greedy, that’s a really big strength.

“We all have to deal with setbacks and injuries, and they did pretty well. It’s not about comparing the team from last year, it’s about how do they deal with the situation and that’s quite impressive.

“I don’t think about the City team of the last few years, I think about the City team of the moment, and that’s good enough for a proper game.”

Daily Star: Salah issues title warning:

Liverpool’s Egyptian star believes it is way too early to start thinking of the Premier League title race being over…

Chris McKenna writes: "But Salah insists that doesn’t mean City are out of the race:

'They were talking about the title race in December last year when we were six or seven points ahead saying it was over,” Salah told Sky Sports.

'It's not over, it's three games. If you have a bad period, you can be in trouble again.

'Even if we win it's still a long way, it's only November and way too early to talk about the Premier League.'

Daily Mail: ‘Momentum is the key’ says Goat

The Goat pins his colours to the post...

City can overhaul Reds says Goater: ‘Football is funny, it is about momentum and right now Liverpool are in great period, they are getting a bit of luck and in some games, they are scoring late and that is keeping the momentum.

‘For a neutral fan watching Liverpool they will say “different Liverpools” because they keep getting the luck.

‘It is still very, very early in the season and the league is just competitive.

‘I saw Aston Villa play man city and I thought they would win but wow it was tight. That shows me there a number of teams that can play against Liverpool and Manchester city and get a result.

‘If it was around February, then it would be completely different, but it is still early and Manchester City still have so much potential.’

Transfer gossip

Football Transfer Tavern: Young Chilean star would love City move

The report reads: "Vicente Reyes, who is also a Chile U17 international, is making his way up the ranks at the tender age of 15, standing out amongst the crowd in Atlanta’s MLS academy with a bright future ahead of him.

"If he were to make it to the top as a professional, given his choice of elite European sides to make a dream move across the Atlantic, it has been revealed that he would opt to sign for the current Premier League champions.

"Speaking in an exclusive interview with Futbol Chileno via Sport Witness, Reyes spoke about one day plying his trade in the Premier League at Eastlands, prompting him to praise his two goalkeeping idols.

“I have two special idols, Claudio Bravo and Ederson Moraes, both from Manchester City,” said Reyes.

“He’s [Bravo] a great example if I want to be a goalkeeper, because of his footwork and because he’s a good leader both on and off the pitch. He’s my role model.

“I want to play in England, that’s my dream, play in Europe in general.

“With my dad I always talk about playing in the Premier League. I would love to be a Manchester City goalkeeper like Claudio Bravo, I follow the team, they’re my favourite in the English league.”

That's all for today - plenty more to come on throughout the day...
