There was a bit of controversy about Liverpool's opening goal. Aleksandar Mitrovic thought he had given Fulham an unlikely lead when he headed in, but the linesman adjudged the striker to be offside. Replays appear to suggest it was an extremely close call. Just seconds later, Liverpool were up the other end celebrating Mohamed Salah's eighth goal of the season after a rapid breakaway. Anfield will not care, though, having watched their side start sluggish in this early kick-off.

The demise of Mohamed Salah has been greatly exaggerated. The Egyptian has just scored his fourth goal in his last three appearances to hand Liverpool a deserved lead over Cardiff City. Minutes before his thrashed finish, Salah ambitiously tried to score direct from a corner. His confidence, which was absent during the opening weeks of the season, is now clear to see.

There has been a power here in the Main Stand at Anfield. Tonight's game is still going ahead as planned, although a few facilities in the Main Stand will be out of use as a result. On the pitch, Liverpool have plenty of power with Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino returning to the starting XI to join Mohamed Salah. Fabinho is also handed a rare start.

A few thoughts on Mexico defeating Costa Rica 3-2 here in Estadio Universitario.

Tom Marshall Mexico correspondent 

Mexico 1-2 Costa Rica here in Estadio Universitario at half-time. Joel Campbell put Costa Rica up before Victo Guzman leveled, with Bryan Ruiz netting a late penalty for Los Ticos. Fans changed Hirving Lozano's name as the team walked off. Coach Ricardo Ferretti fielded a starting XI made up entirely of Mexico-based players. Work to do if El Tri isn't to fall to a fifth consecutive defeat.

Mexico against Costa Rica tonight here in Monterrey. I'd be surprised if Estadio Universitario is full. Strange atmosphere around El Tri at present. Here's a quick preview.

It's finished goalless at Anfield -- a result not many people would have predicted between these two sides. Liverpool somehow still remain unbeaten at home in the Premier League since April 2017. Riyad Mahrez's missed penalty five minutes from time will haunt Manchester City fans over the international break.

There's a lot of media attention on Manchester City's arrival to Anfield this afternoon, but it passes off without incident. The welcome from Liverpool fans is far less intimidating than it was in April.

The Stadio San Paolo is the scene of arguably Jurgen Klopp's most embarrassing moment in management. Klopp was handed a two-match touchline ban for berating the fourth official when his Borussia Dortmund team visited here in 2013. Having been sent off, he ended up watching the rest of that match with Napoli caretaker Vincenzo Gerrone deep in the bowels of the stadium. "I heard he's still here, that's nice," Klopp on Tuesday after arriving with Liverpool. "How can I say, it was not my best performance personally. I reacted in a way which was absolutely not OK."
