Why Sergio Aguero is benched for Manchester City's clash with Liverpool


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is not prepared to take a risk with the Premier League's leading scorer Mohamed Salah in the 231st Merseyside derby.

Robertson also missed the Everton game due to a minor knock and was due to undergo a late fitness test to see if he could face City but the full-back was also out on the training pitches this evening so should be available on Tuesday night. "It makes no sense to talk about what we do with boys in rehab but we've tried everything to make him available", Klopp said. I would never do that, it is not possible.

'Pep is very demanding, but I simply had to adapt my game and mindset and change how I play to his style.

"I know we are judged on results, but on the performances my team is extraordinary". If he is a doubt he will not be involved, that is how it is.

If Liverpool can add a few more high-quality players to the squad in the summer, ideally a goalkeeper, a centre-back and a centre-midfielder, they may have everything they need to finally lift the Premier League trophy.

Chelsea's Eden Hazard left unhappy after West Ham draw at Stamford Bridge
The Blues were left to rue a host of missed chances as they dropped points in the 1-1 draw at home to West Ham on Sunday. I play for my team, my family and my friends and anyone else who wants to comment, that's up to them and I don't care".

"We stopped playing football and were a bit lucky".

But Salah was pictured back training with the rest of his teammates on Monday, as uploaded by the player himself on Twitter - a positive sign that he will be in some way involved.

Ings' last goal actually came against Everton at Goodison in Rodgers' final game, a 1-1 draw, but he then sustained two serious knee injuries which sidelined him for the best part of two seasons.

And Klopp rejected the suggestion the club's achievements of the past give them an upper hand on the current City side.

And they may just have found that in Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, a front three that has absolutely devastated defences this season.
