"(We are) disappointed because we are going to miss him for maybe this game and against Inter Milan in Champions League", said Pochettino.
I think it'll be tough but if they were to go of the Champions League and they had free weeks after Christmas, Saturday-to-Saturday they could be a real threat this season to City.
The Reds have won four from four so far this season, but have yet to come up against a team that has seriously challenged them.
"Gary should come over and tell me exactly how that would work". That's too complicated; you have to go into the next game and see who you can choose.

"I don't want to be too critical because I don't know exactly how he said it", the Liverpool manager said: "But sitting in an office and talking about football is completely different to doing the job, to be honest".
"I think it's so clear, not only in his case, in all the players that have different situations, we are so clear, the club is so clear, when something happens we are going to communicate the news as soon as possible".
"That's what we try".
"We will see, I don't know what it means, to focus on one competition, can only be if you're almost out of a competition, late in the season".
"It is only the job to do sometimes because we have players that work together that much longer".
"The plan was and still is that he will make us better".
After heavy investment in the playing squad over the last 12 months, Liverpool are better to equipped to rotate than they ever have been during Klopp's time at Anfield.
Liverpool were beaten 4-1 by Spurs in this fixture last season, which ended up sparking an 18-game unbeaten run for the Reds.
