I think they've got a really good team, but you look back at teams over the years at Liverpool and they had great teams, when it was Alonso, Mascherano, Gerrard and Torres up front. Only one of the last 4 LFC managers having landed a club prize - Kenny Dalglish during his brief 18 month return to the hot-seat. I don't know why people aren't talking about them. In the moment, we only think only about tomorrow night.

Sarri has downplayed Chelsea's title credentials, insisting his side is still well behind the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City. 'We judge the situation, not the competition.

Olivier Giroud said he sympathises with Gary Cahill's unhappiness at his lack of playing time for Chelsea this season, but that he hopes the defender does not seek a move away from Stamford Bridge in January.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference ahead of Wednesday's Carabao Cup tie against Chelsea, Klopp said: "It's not different between him and other players". We had always quite a good squad when we had no injuries, then we had injuries and the squad didn't look that good anymore! It needs time, and they were all used to other football teams. I understand that he wants to play more.

Conway during her interview urged Ramirez to contact the Senate Judiciary Committee to testify about that accusation. The group says those who can't leave can post a selfie on social media with the hashtag #BelieveSurvivors.

But Klopp has been surprised at how quickly former Napoli boss Sarri has taken to the English game. If you don't perform, it's hard to improve your situation. Otherwise, to improve something you would give yourself half a year to really make the next step in whatever kind of career.

Liverpool have made a sensational start to the season with a 100% record across all competitions, spanning seven games and will want to keep that run against their London rivals. It's Wembley and I remember when we were there we wanted to win it - we were close, but we didn't. In the 24 league games it played without him last season, it won 14 and drew eight, conceding 28 goals at an average of 1.17 per game. We will try and suggest how to be more effective on the pitch, and he will benefit from the way we try to play.

Liverpool don't have too many injuries issues and the fact that they have coasted to six league wins without their big money signing Fabinho tells a lot.
