Liverpool's masterclass against Manchester United is no shock, says Shaqiri

"We're Bayern Munich, though, and I'm sure Liverpool know they've got to come here to Munich for the second leg".

Paul Pogba was soccer's most expensive player two years ago.

"[It was] immediately taken down once it became apparent that it could be misconstrued as disrespectful to Manchester United and Jose Mourinho".

Jurgen Klopp's side are still unbeaten 17 games into the season and a point ahead of reigning champions Manchester City at the summit.

I backed City to go all the way at the start of the season and still believe they will do so, despite chinks in their armour being revealed during a group stage defeat to Lyon.

"We know the table, just are you focused on it or not".

The World Cup victor has now been an unused sub in the last two Premier League games for the Red Devils and Keane thinks it is time for United to part ways with the former Juventus superstar.

The scores were tied at 1-1 when the Swiss entered proceedings after Jesse Lingard levelled the game following Sadio Mane's opener.

"I tried to be direct in the game and you can see also I prepared myself very (well)".

While that was cause for pre-Christmas revelry on the Kop, more significantly, Liverpool's refusal to be subdued by a United team set up by Jose Mourinho with five defenders was another statement of intent as they chase a first English league title since 1990.

Klopp said: "Man City is Jan 3. I'm very confident we'll get through". While it is a huge matchup on paper, Bayern's aging defense continues to fail to deal with speedy attackers in big games. 'All of them didn't train yesterday again and today they will be a little, I don't want to say test, but a little introduction to training to see the answer, adaptation and to see if we can increase a little bit tomorrow to have them for Sunday.

"But at the moment we respect them a lot and they respect us".

Before moving to Liverpool, Fabinho spent the majority of his career in France and, while he says nothing has surprised him since moving to England, he highlighted the competitiveness of the Premier League. "They'll try to keep pace with us and vice versa". Mourinho has repeatedly said he can not compete with the spending power of City and Liverpool, ignoring the fact that he has signed STG400 million of talent over the past two years.
