Liverpool are Man City’s bogey team, says Kyle Walker

Liverpool are Man City’s bogey team, says Kyle Walker

Stan Collymore is tipping Liverpool FC to finish second ahead of Manchester United in third in the Premier League this season.

But while City begin the campaign as firm favourites after their record-breaking title campaign last season, they will be well aware of the threat posed by Juergen Klopp's improving Liverpool and the rest of the big six.

Salah arrived at Liverpool last season for a fee worth £39million with a point to prove in the Premier League having previously failed to make an impact with Chelsea.

We take a look at the other stories making the headlines today in the Premier League.

At Manchester United, Jose Mourinho has publicly asked the club's board for further reinforcements, to add to the arrivals of Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant.

Alan Shearer and Ian Wright might be Premier League heroes, but in recent times they've also become popular pundits for BBC Sport.

Hurricane Hector closing in on Hawaii and volcano
It unclear whether it'll hit or just brush the southern edge of the Big Island by Wednesday, the National Weather Service said. On Friday, state officials warned residents and visitors to take precautions in case Hector gets closer to the island chain.

The Gunners's current deal with Puma expires next year and the Mail says they will sign an agreement with adidas that will be worth £60m a season over five years.

At the same time, Everton have expressed their interest in Yerry Mina, Leicester City seek a Stefano Sturaro move from Juventus and Crystal Palace eye a Yannick Bolasie return from Everton.

"As with all these things, it's only when it comes upon people - but again it wasn't a unanimous decision to do it, so there's bound to be some dissent still around".

Football League clubs will be able to do both until the end of August, though. You've got Chelsea, Tottenham, so it's going to be a tough season, but we're really up for the challenge and we want to go and prove that we are the best team in the league.

And Walker said: "I think we set the bar previous year".
