Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers expects that there will be plenty of attacking football on show when his side takes on Premier League champions Manchester City.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has said that he is expecting goals when his side travels to the Etihad Stadium to take on Manchester City on Monday.

City notched 102 times in their title-winning campaign last term, while runners-up Liverpool scored 101.

Rodgers told reporters: "I think the nature of both teams is the offensive game, but of course they're normally tight games. If you look at both sets of players, there's lots of invention and creativity in the team. I think both will be creative and want to score goals.

"We know we need to be compact and solid when we haven't got the ball, and we need to be aggressive and press well.

"We know we have the freedom, movement and pace that can hurt teams. We understand it's early on, but it'll be a good game for sure."

Liverpool's Premier League campaign got under way last Sunday with a 2-1 win over Southampton.
