Jurgen Klopp says Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is developing well at Liverpool because he is playing in his 'dream' midfield role.

With Liverpool's 4-3 victory over Manchester City, Jurgen Klopp consolidated his status as Pep Guardiola's nemesis.

No manager who has managed more than 10 matches against Guardiola has a better record than Klopp, with the German boss winning six of their 12 meetings -- a superior record than such luminaries as Jose Mourinho.

Klopp and Guardiola's rivalry started in the Bundesliga -- at Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich respectively -- and has been renewed in the Premier League with their contrasting...

James a 9/10 as provider and scorer for victorious Bayern Munich

The FC crew praise Bayern Munich's Bundesliga dominance, but cast doubt on their ability to win the Champions League, despite favourable odds.

Returning to Bundesliga action after winter hibernation, Bayern Munich stretched their advantage at the top to 14 points with a 3-1 win at Bayer Leverkusen, courtesy of goals from Javi Martinez, Franck Ribery and James Rodriguez.

Man City fail to match Bayern for longest winning run in Europe's top 5 leagues

Manchester City's winning streak ends at 18, but more unfortunate for Guardiola is the injuries suffered on Gabriel Jesus and Kevin De Bruyne.

Manchester City's record Premier League winning run is over at 18 consecutive victories, with Crystal Palace claiming on 0-0 draw against them on New Year's Eve.

That means they fall one game short of the record across Europe's top five leagues.

Bayern Munich's succession plan to replace Jupp Heynckes is a mystery

The FC crew grade Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich and struggling Borussia Dortmund in the first half of the season.

Bayern Munich's appointment of Jupp Heynckes for a fourth term has proved inspired, but the canny 72-year-old's transformation of the German champions has once again raised the bar for any successor next summer.
