Appearing on Talksport, Murphy claimed that just two of Liverpool's players would make it into the Manchester City starting line-up.

"But at the same time I understand the lads have been back a lot longer than me and they have had minutes on the pitch".

And Liverpool's business wasn't done there as they also acquired Fabinho from Monaco for a cool €45 million to become the Premier League's biggest spenders in the summer transfer window.

Why McGregor vs. Nurmagomedov is the ideal fight
When asked by ESPN's Brett Okamoto whether he knew why Nate Diaz was upset, UFC President Dana White said : "I have no idea". Well it seems like Conor McGregor's Irish lawyer may have confirmed the date and location for his bout with Nurmagomedov.
