LIVERPOOL, Klopp: "Conte was the Guardiola of Turin"

But their manager has warned that Costa poses a major threat for Chelsea having rediscovered the goalscoring touch and menace that often eluded him last season. "I know about our respect for Chelsea and I am pretty sure from the other side there is exactly the same", he said. They can say what they want.

Rams' Case Keenum was "seeing ghosts" in season-opening flop

They are still the team clawing out of the bottom of the NFC West, with the same tendency to trot out atrocious quarterbacks, and the same ol' man on the sideline, Jeff Fisher.

Moenchengladbach game in Champions League postponed

A goal from Kevin De Bruyne before Kelechi Iheanacho doubled City's lead was enough for City to guarantee the victory. Arsenal come into the game having picked up a little momentum in their season after a lackluster start.
