Five things we learned in this week's round of matches — Premier League

It will be great to hear that Champions League anthem being played at Anfield again on Wednesday night, with this competition meaning more than any other to the club's fans.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is undeniably one of the most charismatic and successful managers of his generation and his record speaks for itself.

"That's probably a good thing, the game comes early and we can put things right, change it again".

Toure was missing from the matchday squad for the 5-0 mauling of Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium.

"But we didn't, and that's what the first half was like, we weren't compact enough and didn't cause them enough problems". It is now clear Toure was not injured. Danny Welbeck scored twice and Alexandre Lacazette also netted to leave the south-coast team winless after four games.

But can we play better against City with one man down? Mane was sent off, Ederson stretchered off, but tests revealed no serious damage and Guardiola heralded his bravery.

Stoke took the lead just before half-time through Cameroon international Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, then conceded an equaliser less than three minutes later, as Nemanja Matic flicked on a corner and Paul Pogba's header hit Marcus Rashford and went in.

"I don't blame the ref for the decision: I am not sure he wanted to give the red card immediately but when he saw the boy bleeding I would have made the same decision", he added. He knows the reason why. "Maybe he will not play in the next game".

While Ederson could return, two players who will definitely not feature are Yaya Toure and Vincent Kompany.

"I was with Dortmund against Bayern, when we lost 5-1, which we should have won!"

"I pray he heals fast and is back playing very soon!"

However, he is training with the team once more and ought to be in contention for this weekend's Premier League encounter with Watford at Vicarage Road.

Finally the Daily Mail's Rob Draper felt that Belgian ace De Bruyne was the star man in a devastating attacking display. "Maybe he was upset about the result".

"We start our road".

"I think [Guardiola] is doing a great job".
