Guardiola confirms surprise early return plans for Jesus

Virgil van Dijk

GETTY Liverpool star Virgil van Dijk scored a late winner against Everton on his debut

Liverpool booked their place in the fourth round of the FA Cup with a 2-1 victory over Everton last time out but they will be exclusively focussed on league matters tomorrow afternoon.

Kyle Walker has revealed Pep Guardiola has told his players about Manchester City's poor record at Liverpool in the Premier League.

Liverpool have not lost at home yet this season, from 16 games at Anfield they have won 10 and drawn six. "Of course, he has to be calm and play the game he has to play".

Liverpool are reportedly ready to sell striker Daniel Sturridge in January if they can attract a £30 million offer, with Southampton and West Ham United understood to be among his Premier League suitors.

But to win their 13th consecutive game, coach Matt Painter's team will have to withstand a talented and motivated Minnesota bunch. He's picked it up even more recently with 16 points and six rebounds per game in his last four games.

Van Dijk showed Liverpool fans just how much he will bring to his new side with a commanding display on debut, as he bullied Dominic Calvert-Lewin for the full 90 minutes. But after his heroics in the FA Cup derby, let's hope he's gotten his jitters out.

But arguably the biggest test for Liverpool will be to contain Manchester City's midfield. With Lallana fit, he'll likely start. He cannot be afforded any space or time on the ball and it will be imperative for Liverpool's CDM Emre Can to keep him away from danger.

He hasn't been picked for England recently and wasn't picked for November's friendlies against Germany and Brazil as persistent injury problems have seen the once formidable goal-getter fall down the pecking order at the Reds due to restricted game time.

For City, Gabriel Jesus (knee) is close to his comeback from injury but Captain Vincent Kompany remains out.

Jurgen Klopp: "In a football way, we should try to clarify something".

"They're human", Johnson said, before warning, "even if they have world-class players in every position and world-class players behind that". The gaffer's made us well aware of that [record].

"This season we were able to do that but we still have to go to Anfield, to Tottenham - there are still lots of games to play". At the beginning of the Carabao Cup they played Wolverhampton and they went to the penalty kicks against them.

On a good day, we have a really good level but we've had a few days when we didn't do that with the same consistency.
