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

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."

Diego Maradona's second home game as Dorados de Sinaloa coach is underway. Maradona made a point of going to the opposition bench and shaking the hands of all the Leones Negros subs and the manager before kickoff.

Diego Maradona looked like he wanted to join in at training and finally got his touch. Massive game here in Culiacan for Maradona's Dorados de Sinaloa on Saturday against Leones Negros. A loss would make it very difficult for the team to reach the 2018 Apertura playoffs in Mexico's second division.

Daniel Sturridge produces the only moment of real quality to put Liverpool ahead. It's an acrobatic finish from the striker, who has now scored in each of his two starts this season. He's still massively adored here at Anfield, judging by the crowd's reaction to the goal.

Glenn Price Liverpool correspondent 

Not much to report from Anfield at all. Both teams made eight changes for the game -- and it's certainly showing at the moment. There's a been real lack of quality in the final third, despite the millions of pounds on display. Jurgen Klopp certainly isn't happy with his side's start, judging from his touchline demeanour.

Glenn Price Liverpool correspondent 

He's been the conundrum of Liverpool's season so far, but Fabinho has finally been handed his first start for the Reds. The Brazilian is set to play the deeper role in a midfield trio of James Milner and Naby Keita. Dejan Lovren also makes his first start of the season following his pelvis injury. Jurgen Klopp has decided to make eight changes in total.

Glenn Price Liverpool correspondent 

It's a glorious evening on Merseyside as Liverpool supporters make the walk through Stanley Park en route to Anfield for tonight's League Cup tie. There's a fair bit of excitement among the fan base at the prospect of seeing a number of fringe players appear against Chelsea, including summer signing Fabinho.
