Spartak Moscow v Liverpool: Salah to light up the Russian capital

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp oversaw training with his Liverpool players at Melwood

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp oversaw training with his Liverpool players at Melwood

Of course that's a weakness for each team - it is like we played the last three games without Sadio Mane, also a very good player.

A 3-2 victory over Leicester on Saturday ended a four-match winless run but it hardly quietened the critics who have been lambasting manager Jurgen Klopp over his leaky backline.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp arrived in Russian Federation looking forward to his first visit to Moscow - but his first evening in the capital left him agitated and frustrated. That may be the case for stubborn Premier League opponents who make themselves hard to break down but may be a touch too aggressive in a European away tie.

We aren't even into October and pundits are starting to run out of superlatives when it comes to Manchester City as a goal-scoring threat.

Bangladesh warns Myanmar over border amid Rohingya refugee crisis
Security Council have urged Myanmar to end the violence, which he said was best described as ethnic cleansing. CAFOD partner, Caritas Bangladesh, is responding to the refugee crisis by providing emergency aid.

The Russian champions had to come from behind to draw 2-2 with Anji. "I love Harry too but he is a Tottenham player". Liverpool are inconsistent on the road, and although their defence is a work in progress, the team isn't defending well enough as a unit at present.

Spartak have players who can threaten the Liverpool defence (they haven't failed to score in a home game for a year), but at the other end, they have a clear lack of pace, especially in the full-back positions.

It would not be a shock to see them contribute to the goal tally on the evening and that may well apply to Shakhtar at the Etihad Stadium with Brazilian Taison really catching the eye in their opening 2-1 triumph over Napoli. The jet-heeled Egyptian has scored six goals in all competitions, and has netted in the last three matches.

The defence has come under scrutiny in recent weeks, having kept just two clean sheets in 10 matches, but Karius insists the focus should not be placed exclusively on the back four, and in particular the two centre-halves, whomever they may be. The returning Mane is [2.4].
