FourFourTwo: City consider move for Caglar Soyuncu

“Manchester City are weighing up a move for Leicester centre-back Caglar Soyuncu, according to reports.

“Turkish publication Fotospor write that the Premier League champions have been impressed by the Leicester man’s performances so far this season.

“Guardiola could return to the King Power Stadium in an attempt to acquire Soyuncu, although City are aware that Leicester will be loath to lose one of their key players in the middle of the campaign.”

The Mirror: Virgil van Dijk insists Liverpool's five-point lead over City means nothing

Van Dijk: “No, it doesn’t mean anything. It’s far too early.

“We’re almost in October and the busy period will come. There are still so many games left and the only thing we focus on is the game ahead of us.

“We don’t want to look at the others because there’s no point doing that.

“Everyone realises that as well because last season we saw how it turned quickly. We just want to focus on the game ahead of us.”

“I thought Ederson's performance against Everton was nothing short of world class.

“The first save from Yerry Mina was impressive while the second effort by the same player forced Ederson to dive full stretch and push the ball wide of his post.

“The Brazilian's saves changed the course of the game for Manchester City and has kept Liverpool looking over their shoulder.”
