In short, City ran through Southampton 6-1 to the point where it was nearly embarrassing for the visitors, with Mark Hughes having to sit and ponder over what could've been against his former club.

At the back, Chelsea have utilised their second-string players in the competition so far meaning Davide Zappacosta, Gary Cahill, Andreas Christensen and Emerson Palmieri should all come in. I had a period where everything ... if it was raining, I was angry because it's raining; if I miss, it's because the pitch is too wet.

The 26-year-old has scored four times in his last four Premier League appearances though, with the centre-forward claiming that he is now in a better place mentally. The important thing is to find the right balance. "It was very important for me", he added.

"If they play on Friday and we play on Sunday, you think for two days from Friday until Sunday about the pressure being more on us because they have won already".

City took just six minutes to open the scoring as Wesley Hoedt smashed an attempted clearance of Leroy Sane's cross into his own net, before Sergio Aguero doubled their lead by tapping in Raheem Sterling's cross.

"I think Liverpool supporters, myself included obviously, they've got to just relax a little bit", said Carragher on Sky Sports.

Morata, whose wife gave birth to twins in July, might have completed a hat-trick against Palace only to opt to chip Wayne Hennessey, at 6ft 6in, from close range after sprinting through on goal in stoppage time. "There is Hazard, there is [Sadio] Mane, [Roberto] Firmino, [Sergio] Aguero, Harry Kane".

They may be a brilliant team, but I don't fancy Manchester City to be the team emerging from that pack, but there is good reason to believe Liverpool can be in the mix when it matters once again in the Champions League. "Relax, it's been a brilliant start, and I think everyone expects it to continue - but it will be tough against Manchester City".

"If you score 15 or 20, that is good because we are strikers and we want to score but we need to win also".
