41' 

Fair to say opinion is divided. More importantly, Ederson looks like he is quite badly hurt and won't be able to continue. Bravo will be on shortly.

RED CARD! Mane sets off after a through ball, as does Ederson, and the goalie gets there just before Mane who had raised his foot to try and flick the ball beyond him. Referee Moss is quick to show a red card, but Mane had to go for the ball there.

City look shaky at the back already, with Salah and Mane both finding space in wide areas, and on this occasion the former cuts the ball back for Henderson to cross and he finds Firmino at the back post however the forward can only stab the ball straight at Ederson.

13' 

Fernandinho tries his luck from range and produces one of those scuffed strikes that seems to gain speed as it gets closer to the goal. Mignolet tips it wide and City promptly waste another corner.

11' 

Referee Moss has a word with Alexander-Arnold about how long he's taking to take throw-ins and 30 seconds later he slices a backpass to give away a corner. Not the best of starts for the youngster.

7' 

Already this looks like it might be an end-to-end encounter. City are straight up the other end where Mignolet is equal to a 25-yard drive from De Bruyne.

Just 10 minutes until kick-off now, so here's a reminder of the teams in full.

MAN CITY: Ederson, Walker, Danilo, Stones, Otamendi, Mendy, Fernandinho, De Bruyne, D. Silva, Aguero, Jesus. Subs: Bravo, Gundogan, Mangala, Delph, Sane, B. Silva, Foden.

LIVERPOOL: Mignolet, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Klavan, Moreno, Can, Henderson, Wijnaldumm, Salah, Firmino, Mane. Subs: Karius, Lovren, Milner, Gomez, Sturridge, Solanke, Oxlade-Chamberlain.

12:16 

Klopp has won three of his four Premier League games against Man City, including a 4-1 triumph at the Etihad that featured this goal.

12:12

Under Klopp, Liverpool have lost just once in 22 Premier League games against a top seven side from the previous season, winning 12 of those games.

12:07 

Pep Guardiola not giving much away in his pre-match TV interview. "Of course" he looks forward to games like this, he's playing two strikers "because we try to score goals" and he wouldn't confirm whether or not City will be playing a back three.

12:02 

And that form hasn't gone unnoticed.

12:00

Sadio Mane has scored in each of his last four Premier League games.

 
11:50 

Both teams enter this match unbeaten on seven points, so if there's a winner that team will go top, albeit only for a short while should Manchester United avoid defeat later. Another thing they have in common is that both aren't in Champions League action until Wednesday, so the managers have a bit more leeway in terms of playing players in both games.

11:45 

With a record like that it's no surprise he's back in the line-up.

11:40 

As for Liverpool, the biggest thing to note is that Ragnar Klaven starts, with Dejan Lovren having to make do with a place on the bench where he's joined by new boy Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Simon Mignolet is back in the team, as is Trent Alexander-Arnold, with the Reds making three changes too.

11:35 

Three changes for Manchester City as Kyle Walker, John Stones and Sergio Aguero come into the side for the injured Vincent Kompany, suspended Raheem Sterling and benched Bernardo Silva.

11:30 

Hello and welcome to LIVE coverage of Liverpool's trip to Manchester City. Two attacking teams, two shaky defences and a lot riding on the game even at this early stage it has all the hallmarks of a cracker - and here's hoping that's not a cue for a 0-0.
