Manchester City are the subject of a Premier League investigation into allegations regarding the club's finances, youth player recruitment and third-party ownership.

Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool will not change their approach in the Premier League title race after falling behind Manchester City.

It sparked a row with Sean Dyche, a manager Klopp admires for the work he has done at Turf Moor, but the Reds boss said that had all now been forgotten.

In the presser, Klopp talked about the early kick-off, the return of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in the U23s and much more.

"We've got the biggest game for us".

"Our people are very important, we spoke a lot about that - we need atmosphere at 12 o'clock", he added. He was out for a while, so we have to see how his fitness is exactly.

City host eighth-placed Watford on Saturday and Guardiola hailed their manager Javi Gracia, who looks set to lead them to their best-ever finish in the Premier League.

"Our only problem this week is Burnley and that's enough - we have to be really good to beat this team, Dyche is doing an wonderful job perhaps with not the best circumstances in the league". I have no idea what he said after the game.

Guaido returns to Venezuela, calls for street protests
Many Venezuelans say the election should not be recognized because Maduro barred his opponents from running against him. Meanwhile, U-S Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo has hailed Guaido's QUOTE safe return to Venezuela.

"They are so consistent in what they are doing", he said. We were not used to it. We'll give everything we have, and they probably will, too.

"With how we play, there can be a lot of chaos going on, with counter-attacks and when we win the ball we go again and go again".

Klopp delivered good news on the injury front, revealing Dejan Lovren, James Milner, Rhian Brewster and Jordan Henderson are all in contention to play as Gomez steps up his recovery.

"Dejan trained [on Thursday] for the first time, [in] full, completely normal". We wanted to be in a position to fight for the top spot in the league and we are still in it and that is all we need to be positive and optimistic.

"Joe is now running with 100 per cent of his weight, because we have different opportunities to run".

Burnley haven't been the easiest opponents to any team in the league, especially when they are in good form.

"Most of the [returns] will probably be after the worldwide break, for example Joe and stuff like that. I think if you ask Millie he would say, "I will be ready", but we have to see".
