Premier League football is set to return with quite the bang this weekend, with the first match since the international break coming in the form of a mouthwatering duel between Manchester City and Liverpool.

"He made a huge effort, our physios worked a lot to take care of him, so the last seven, eight, nine games of the season he played without problem for 90 mins". But the final decision wasn't good enough to score.
The game hinged on Liverpoolforward Sadio Mane's 37th-minute dismissal for a shuddering head-high challenge on Ederson that ended the Citygoalkeeper's match, but Guardiola only had eyes for de Bruyne.
Ederson could still be doubtful for City'sChampions League group stage opener at Feyenoord on Wednesday.
