  3. 'I would have loved to play against them' - Guardiola

    Marseille v Man City (20:00 BST)

    City face the French side, who are back in the Champions League group stage for the first time since the 2013-14 season.

    If you remember, Marseille beat AC Milan in the 1992-93 final, thanks to Basile Boli's headed effort. OK, many of you won't remember but will be aware of it. City boss Pep Guardiola does remember it, but he is 49 years old tbf.

    "I remember, I was young," he said. "It's a pity the Velodrome is not full because people told me the fans are incredible here.

    "I would have loved to play against them. It is a pleasure to be here. Unfortunately I don't speak French but I have time to improve, I'm young enough. We play the Champions League against Marseille for the first time, hopefully it will not be the last."

  4. Early team news

    Marseille v Man City (20:00 BST)

    Manchester City

    Manchester City will be without record goalscorer Sergio Aguero against Marseille on Tuesday and the striker could be out for a month.

    Aguero, 32, playing just his third game since recovering from a knee operation, sustained a muscle problem and was taken off at half-time at West Ham in the Premier League on Saturday.

    Centre-back Aymeric Laporte has travelled to France for City's second Champions League Group C game and Kevin De Bruyne is in contention to start after Saturday's substitute appearance.

    However, Fernandinho, Benjamin Mendy and Nathan Ake also miss the behind-closed-doors encounter at the Stade Velodrome.

    Full preview here.

  5. Get Involved: are Son & Kane the best Premier League partnership?


    Lawrence Kershaw: Torres and Gerrard would have to come into consideration; extraordinary, almost telepathic understanding.

  6. Reds eye 10,000th club goal

    So here's something from the Liverpool website:

    Liverpool could achieve the landmark of 10,000 goals scored.

    History suggests the 10,000th goal will arrive at Anfield this evening, as Liverpool have won each of their past 11 games played on this date – a run stretching back to 1973.

    Imagine if they don't manage it against Midtyjlland... with due respect to Midtyjlland

  7. Early team news

    Liverpool v FC Midtjylland


    Liverpool trio Thiago Alcantara, Naby Keita and Joel Matip are unlikely to be ready to face Danish champions FC Midtjylland on Tuesday.

    Keita has missed three games after testing positive for coronavirus, with Thiago and Matip injured at Everton.

    Boss Jurgen Klopp says they will "probably" miss the Reds' second Champions League group game.

    "I said last week it would be day by day but I think it will be a few more days," said the German.

    The Premier League champions received a boost at the weekend when goalkeeper Alisson returned from a collarbone injury to play in the 2-1 win against Sheffield United.

    Read the full preview here.

  8. Get Involved: are Son & Kane the best Premier League partnership?


    Matt Lewis: I know Drogba-Lampard is the one people talk about, but the one I remember most is Drogba-Anelka. There was a time when, quite simply, if one didn’t score against you, the other would. Their styles of play suited each other perfectly. I loved watching those two.

    Yup, at their best the pair were phenomenal

  9. Man City and Liverpool in European action

    That neatly moves us on to Tuesday's Champions League chat.

    Manchester City will be seeking some salvation from their Premier League woes (they're level on points with Newcastle!!) when they face Marseille in Group C. City beat Porto last week.

    And Liverpool host Danish side FC Midtjylland - more on them in a bit. The Reds saw off Ajax in their first Group D match.

  10. Get Involved: are Son & Kane the best Premier League partnership?


    Matt: What's the record for most goal combinations between two players in a single PL season? Kane and Son are on 9 after 6 games, surely that's already some way to beating the record?

    Richard Hatt: Times crossword clue at 07:36 “Cat lady’s in pursuit of desire”. Could be ‘panther’. (pant + her).

  14. Get Involved: are Son & Kane the best Premier League partnership?


    Michael Robinson: Heskey & Owen. 46 goals 2000-2001.

    Ope: Shearer and Sutton

    Both splendid pairings, in fact I believe Shearer and Sutton combined for 13 goals in one season

  15. Pay-per-view: Fans raise £300,000 as scheme set to continue

    Elsewhere on BBC Football... it seems Premier League's controversial pay-per-view scheme is set to continue at least until next month's international break.

    Matches that are outside the scheduled TV broadcast selections are available on BT Sport Box Office or Sky Sports Box Office for £14.95 per game. Games had been available free-to-air since the Premier League returned without fans in June.

    Fans boycotting these games have raised more than £300,000 for charity.
