The last meeting between the two clubs saw a second-half Sergio Aguero strike cancel out James Milner's penalty for Liverpool at the Etihad back in March, with the game finishing one goal apiece. "We spoke at half-time and said: don't let them run". That dominant voice and physical presence is still missing at the heart of the defence . "I do not say to my strikers: "Pass the ball" - I tell them: 'Score a goal , please, '" he said.
The Dutch worldwide van Dijk was a top target of the Reds during the summer and he even handed in a transfer request to the Saints to try and force through a move.

Oklahoma surrendered 16 to Ohio State. Buckeye receivers struggled to create separation. It was "J.T. Barrett this" and "J.T. Barrett that", none of it good. Penn State is No. 5 after beating Pitt.

The storm should remain risky until Wednesday when it moves into Western Tennessee as a tropical depression. Hurricane Irma was one of the most powerful storms ever measured in the Atlantic Ocean, becoming a Category 5 with sustained 185 mile per hour winds at one point.
Jose has maximum sustained winds of 90 miles per hour with higher gusts. The National Hurricane Center says Irma made landfall on the Camaguey Archipelago of Cuba late Friday and has maximum sustained winds of 160 miles per hour.

There is plenty of work to do as San Francisco was held scoreless in the first half of the opener for the first time in 40 years and lost the ...

As mentioned above, the absence of Prince Amukamara gives the Bears a headache when it comes to covering superstar receiver Julio Jones . "We definitely have a lot of things to clean up, but we got what we set out for and that was a W". But the strong finish probably won't put an end to a debate in Chicago that picked up steam in the preseason . Every starter in the Bears secondary last season did not start this season.
