The blockbuster meeting of Manchester City and Liverpool on Saturday ended in a 1-1 draw as Trent Alexander-Arnold scored late to cancel out Erling Haaland's opener. The two teams entered the game in first and second, but each dropped a spot on Saturday evening when Arsenal beat Brentford.

Now, attention turns back to European action, with Liverpool due to take on LASK on matchday five of the Europa League group stages on Thursday night. After maintaining a perfect record through the first half of its schedule, the Reds suffered a shock 3-2 defeat to Toulouse last time out.

However, Jürgen Klopp's side knows that victory over the Austrian outfit, which it beat 3-1 back in September, would ensure progression to the next phase. If Liverpool wins, and Toulouse fails to beat Union SG at home in the other fixture, it will also secure top spot.

That will be particularly important in this competition, because the sides who finish second face a play-off against a team who placed third in their Champions League group come February. As we wait to see whether the Reds can book their spot, here are the latest stories that you can't afford to miss.

Latest on Alisson and Diogo Jota after Liverpool injuries

Liverpool would have been pleased to pick up a point against Man City, but it was left with a couple of injury worries. Diogo Jota was forced off early in the second half, while Alisson was barely able to complete the game and had to have treatment on the pitch afterward.

The two players underwent scans, and the club is still awaiting the results, but there should be further news from Klopp in his pre-match press conference on Wednesday. Matt Addison has a full injury update here.

Roberto De Zerbi hits issue Liverpool solved

Brighton manager Roberto De Zerbi ran onto the pitch to celebrate with the fans on Saturday after ending a six-match Premier League winless run with a dramatic 3-2 victory over Nottingham Forest, but he has a key challenge to overcome this season. Opponents appear to have sussed out the strategic importance of De Zerbi's 'pressing traps', and decided not to engage.

This has forced the Seagulls to try and win games in a different way, breaking down deep-set sides that stay in shape instead. Klopp has previously struggled with this at Anfield, but by acquiring three midfield technicians last summer in the form of Dominik Szoboszlai, Alexis Mac Allister and Ryan Gravenberch, he may have found a solution.
