Jurgen Klopp wants Liverpool to sign a creative playmaker this season

Klopp said this following his side's Premier League 0-0 draw with City at Anfield on Sunday in the Premier League.

"I asked him 'big one?' and he said 'I don't think so, but big enough that I go off'".

Graeme Souness also expressed his views on Liverpool's recent transfers while stating "In the summer Liverpool signed Fabinho, signed Keita and also tried to sign [Nabil] Fekir from Lyon", and added, "I think that tells you how Jurgen sees their midfield".

Arsenal, who lost their first two games of the season are right back in the title hunt after a 5-1 stroll against Fulham, while Chelsea saw off Southampton 3-0 to maintain their unbeaten start to the season.

Far from the enthralling encounters between the sides last season, neither team hit top gear as City halted a run of three straight defeats by Liverpool but passed up the biggest chance to win the game when Riyad Mahrez blasted a late penalty over the bar.

Stones said City were delighted to keep a clean sheet after conceding seven goals in their past two visits - one game in the Premier League and one in the Champions League - but Mahrez's miss took the gloss off their performance.

"If it is an open game at Anfield you don't even have a one-percent chance".

"Up and down they are the best team in the world in these transitions, offensive, defensive, they are built for that".

Newcomers winners in Latvian election, tough coalition talks ahead
But together with an expected 15 seats for KPV LV, the two parties would need at least one other partner to clinch a majority. Latvia is a member of both the eurozone and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation , having joined the military alliance in 2004.

Much like with Alisson's mistake earlier in the season, everyone will simply be happy that the error did not cost them the game.

Klopp said players need a proper break to be fresher, pointing to the case of Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson who played for England at the World Cup in Russian Federation. "It's just the fact of having someone like that in the squad to turn to when you feel you need that player".

"He did not start in the first 11 today but when he was on he scored within a minute and that gives confidence for both him and us".

"We played Chelsea last week, who were excellent".

The Belgian said he did not know if he had ever played better than this season.

As I said on Match of the Day on Saturday, what has been happening at United this season has been embarrassing, right through the club.

"There were not a lot of chances in the game; at the end, we were lucky they missed the penalty".
