Leroy Sane Hugely Missed By Manchester City

All the talk of crucial absences in the clash between Liverpool and Manchester City centred around Aymeric Laporte and Ederson.

Liverpool though would have been happier that another player who has tormented them more than most was not going to take the field.  In this burgeoning rivalry between the two best teams …

Can Anyone Break The Top Two?

Can Anyone Break The Top Two?

The gap between the top two and the rest of the top six in the Premier League ended up being on paper much, much larger than the gap between the rest of the top six and the rest of the Premier League.
