Joe Gomez

GETTYJoe Gomez thinks he will benefit greatly from Virgil van Dijk being at Liverpool

Asked what made his new side an attractive destination for a player who was also the subject of interest from Chelsea, the former Celtic man replied: "I think the size of the club, the fans, the players, the manager, the whole package here is unbelievable". I can imagine it's not attractive for the spectators when we play teams with 10 players around their own box, just defending and hoping for a set-piece or throw-in, anything.

The absence of the Brazil playmaker at Anfield on Sunday afternoon, however, does not mean Liverpool can not become the first team to beat City in the league this season, according to Henry.

Sturridge has started just 30 Premier League games since the 2014-15 season when he bagged 17 goals as Liverpool went close to winning the title.

But the Liverpool boss suggested that the trio will remain on the sidelines when City visit Anfield as they need to build up their match fitness before returning to action.

A very different Arsenal should be on show to the one thumped 4-2 at Nottingham Forest last Sunday as Arsene Wenger sits in the stands for the final game of his three-match touchline ban.

"We are facing them in their best moment. But Liverpool vs City is so important to realise again, if we are able to do big things in this season". And they have shored up their suspect defence by paying an eye-watering £75 million ($102 million, 84 million euros) to Southampton for defender Virgil Van Dijk.

Commenting on the kind of reception former Red Raheem Sterling would get from Liverpool fans, Guardiola said: "It's not the first time he's been back. I think he could be ready in two or three weeks for Basel in the Champions League".

Midfield: Jordan Henderson has returned to light training but the midfielder is still unavailable for selection so I think we'll see Emre Can keep his place in midfield. It is exactly like everybody knows - it was his dream and it's the truth when I say he left Liverpool only for one club and that was Barcelona. "Every single player that we want to keep, I can assure you will be playing for Tottenham Hotspur next season".
