The Reds conceded three terrible goals as they drew 3-3 in today's early kick-off against Watford at Vicarage Road. What defenders can do it? Everyone has got their own individual job. It takes their tally to 27 goals conceded from set-pieces during Jurgen Klopp's reign - the most racked up by any of the top-six during that period.

    The lead was short lived as Shinji Okazaki restored parity via his head only minutes later and Jamie Vardy slid in to score just before the half-hour mark. I know how important he is not only as a player - he's a fantastic player - but also in the group he has a big weight. Since the start of last season, Giroud has scored seven Premier League goals coming off the bench - three more than any other player in the same period.

    A Nelson Cruz home run would tie the game in the bottom of the 8th, but Edwin Diaz would give up a bases clearing double to LA's Mike Trout in the 9th inning, to give back the lead. "We just didn't get the last out there in the seventh inning". "Mike's on-base percentage is off the charts". He was in a situation where we wanted to get him through the lineup twice.

    I know where I am and what to do. Their unrivalled strength in depth was one of the crucial factors in picking up a first title in five years last season as coach Zinedine Zidane heavily rotated his side against lesser opposition. He ended the campaign with 11 goals in 42 appearances, while his La Liga record read 10 goals and eight assists from just 18 starts, which is a strong indication of exactly what he brought to Los Blancos during the 2016-17 campaign.

    Jesus ended last season with seven goals in eight Premier League starts, although arguably his two most famous strikes were disallowed for offside. Guardiola's reported desire to bring Alexis Sanchez to the Etihad Stadium and his previously reserved praise of Aguero means the Argentina star's future at City remains a matter of intrigue.

    Sports

    In the last six or seven years Manchester City didn't buy full-backs. There's a gulf between Albion and City. The new players that come in they have to adjust to the way we want to play. As you know the Premier League is the main target. "That is the top (and only) priority, and the club will do all it can to achieve that". "It will not be easy but we travel to win the game".

    As Arsenal's usher in the new Premier League season against Leicester City at the Emirates today, there remain numerous questions and expectations from the coming season. Burnley , who struggled badly at the end of the 2016-17 season and haven't strengthened since, are generally a 13-10 shot for relegation, with newcomers Brighton at 13-8 tipped to make a swift return to the second tier.

    Madrid dominated proceedings against United for the large part, but Mourinho's men can take plenty of positives away from the game: Fellaini's influence, Romelu Lukaku scoring, Matic looking right at home in midfield and the fact that, despite being outclassed, they should have taken the game to extra time.

    The Seagulls were impressive in the first three friendly games scoring 11 and conceding none, but then failed to beat Norwich City and Girona, and, unsurprisingly, lost to Atletico Madrid in their last test before Manchester City . Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has confirmed that he is facing injury issues ahead of their Premier League opener. "So we have to disregard most of it, because it's something that we can't affect".

    As for Sigurdsson, Clement expects a replacement or two - Wilfried Bony and Nacer Chadli are on the club's shortlist - to arrive swiftly once a fee with Everton is agreed. I think it's in the best interest with everyone involved that's not the case, and in my plans that's the situation that Gylfi will not be involved in the squad this weekend.
