Here is your Liverpool morning digest for September 27.

Guardiola’s Anfield admission

Liverpool face another huge week after a draw at Brentford.

An away trip to Porto in the Champions League is first before a top of the table clash with Man City at Anfield on Sunday.

City produced a fine display on Saturday to beat Chelsea in the Premier League, offering a reminder of their quality ahead of a crucial week.

Guardiola takes his team to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League in midweek, before they visit Liverpool for what promises to be a huge game in the Premier League title race.

Last season, City were dominant in a 4-1 win over the Reds, although that was in front of empty stands at Anfield. Speaking last year, Guardiola looked ahead to the team’s next trip to the stadium and said it’ll be a much tougher ask.

“Hopefully, next time we can do it with a similar performance with spectators as Anfield with and without fans is completely different,” he said.

Thiago influence noted after injury absence

Liverpool were unable to attain a measure of control in Saturday’s 3-3 draw with Brentford in the Premier League.

While Jurgen Klopp‘s side played some exhilarating attacking football, in defence they were lacklustre and in midfield they were rattled by their vibrant hosts.

It’s the kind of match where they could have done with Thiago Alcantara and the midfielder’s influence was sorely missed, as he sat out the clash with a calf problem.

The Spain international will be absent until after the upcoming international break and that clearly represents a major blow for Liverpool. Ian Doyle has been looking at how much of a problem his absence could cause for the Reds in this crucial early portion of the campaign.

“Liverpool, meanwhile, will hope Thiago is back available for a season-shaping October calendar that continues with successive away games at Watford, Atletico Madrid and Manchester United,” he said.

“Certainly, Klopp will know a lot more about what can be achieved this campaign come the full-time whistle at Old Trafford. Every player will be required during that period – and the calm, composed Thiago cannot return soon enough.”
