RB Leipzig forward Lois Openda starred against Manchester City in the Champions League - and Liverpool are keen on him.

Openda, 23, scored his 12th and 13th goals of the season at the Etihad Stadium as his side fell to a late 3-2 loss against the reigning European champions, but he stood out.

He gave the German side a shock 2-0 lead after two well-taken first-half goals but goals from Erling Haaland, Phil Foden and Julian Alvarez saw his side beaten on the night.

Amid the plaudits he received from the footballing world last night, Belgian journalist Sacha Tavolieri has claimed that Liverpool are one of the sides that are interested in the Belgian forward.

Taking to X, he wrote: 'What an amazing performance of Loïs Openda during this first half. Belgian striker’s adapting perfectly with the type of play that fits with #RBLeipzig… The transfer market in Premier League already very hot on him, as #LFC. Wonderful talent.'

Meanwhile, Pep Guardiola has warned his Manchester City players that they must cut out the defensive errors that have emerged in recent weeks.

The European champions ensured they took top spot in their Champions League group courtesy of a 3-2 win over RB Leipzig on Tuesday, with City overturning a two-goal deficit at half-time. But conceding sloppy goals has been a common theme across the Champions League this term, and Guardiola’s side have been punished on the break on five occasions in the group stages.

He said: “It didn’t happen last season, that is the truth. We talk about it, it’s football, it happens. Human beings, it happens and the opponents play too, but we have to improve because not all the times you can come back there."
