Salah, Mane on target as Liverpool down Man City

"For 75 minutes, it was incredible what we did with the players we have".

"We lost the distance between the defenders and the midfielders, but we know we have to work". But in defensive midfield, they look light.

Former Manchester United and Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov has tipped his old clubs to be first and second in the Premier League this season.

"We made 75 minutes incredible but the last 15 minutes we were so exhausted and there were some changes and of course their quality of the attacking players they deserved to score more goals at the end".

Mourinho also poked fun at Klopp after the German questioned the purchase of Paul Pogba from Juventus in 2016 for a then world-record fee that could rise to £94m.

"I think if you have the money, if you invest well, it is better than to have it in the bank".

Guardiola has, of course, had great success when adapting players to new positions in the past, but the demands of Fernandinho's role in the team should not be underestimated. He was invaluable in possession too.

Mane and Salah picked up where they left off last season and tore the Sky Blues defence to shreds.

Take, for example, how last season's fourth-placed finish could've so easily been a top-two finish, had a loss against lowly Swansea City and draws against Tottenham Hotspur and relegated West Bromwich Albion and Stoke City been avoided - the gap between second and third amounted to six points.

On the possibility of making further additions before the August 9 deadline, Guardiola added at the press conference, footage of which was shown on Sky Sports News: "We will see". But who do they turn to next?

Cape Town - Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has signed a contract extension with the club, but insists a manager is judged on results and is never safe.

There are not many players around with the necessary breadth of attributes for the role.

"We can handle players in different positions".

Perhaps City's eyes are elsewhere, but there is no guarantee that anyone they bring in will be able to slot into the system quite as seamlessly as Fernandinho.

The way in which Liverpool blew the likes of Roma, Arsenal and Man City away provides the enduring memory of the season, and speaking after the pre-season win over the latter he promised more of the same.
