Rangers move a step up from Sunderland, says Liverpool loanee Ovie Ejaria

RANGERS TV GETTY Rangers boss Steven Gerrard thanked Liverpool for loaning Ryan Kent after the 3-1 win vs Hearts

The former Atletico Madrid striker Aguero is now City's all-time goal scorer with 148 top-flight goals, 111 more than Salah, who has scored 37 in the Premier League so far; 35 with Liverpool and two with Chelsea.

Impressive in defence but rash in the tackle, Alexander-Arnold has been booked three times already this season, one of the highest in the Premier League so far.

"That goes for any club that wants my captain". But I said it before, always someone is telling me, "Good luck for Sunday", and I think always, unfortunately, we need it.

Gerrard also claimed the title race had been "blown wide open" after the victory.

Hearts had kicked-off the campaign with six wins and a draw yet Rangers made easier work of Craig Levein's men than they could possibly have expected. We are still top of the league so we've got to take the positives, we can't dwell on it too much. McGregor had denied Steven Naismith and Ikpeazu in the first half with two excellent saves, so when he was beaten by Jimmy Dunne's 67th-minute header it was no more than Hearts deserved.

Goals seem to be on the agenda when these two meet and while both teams to score looks a good option, I don't see much value in the price at around [1.56] despite thinking it may well occur, I think I would prefer to look elsewhere for a bet.

"I think it's a bit early to say it is just yet, but we are certainly showing the right signs because teams are coming here, different types of teams, and we're matching them".

The result leaves the pair level with Chelsea on 20 points although City stay top on goal difference with Juergen Klopp's Liverpool side in third place.

Asked if people saying Liverpool had worked out how to beat City were correct, Guardiola said: "Good - congratulations". This team together with the club, the money they have and this manager is exceptional. Indeed, the 22-year-old averaged 0.23 assists per 90 minutes in all competitions for Rangers last season, yet that figure has jumped up to 0.36 this time around.

But the response has been exactly what they needed as they have passed two significant tests at home and overseas in successive Ibrox wins. "We had an opportunity to put right the Livingston performance and did so against Rapid, but we have to keep it going against Hearts", Arfield said.

"The challenge for me and the team now is that can we make these home performances away from home and that's when we will find consistency".
