Manchester City's tactics showed Pep Guardiola's respect for Liverpool - Virgil van Dijk

Klopp hopes De Bruyne is fit to face Liverpool

'We were very strong and we showed that we can do both - we can have the ball but be strong as well, ' said Mahrez, who played a key role in occupying attacking left-back Andy Robertson.

"You saw his penalty map come up with the three misses and you then think he's got anxiety with previous penalties as it means you're not flawless at them".

The well known pundit was joined by former Red Craig Bellamy for a meeting of the minds, and between them they managed to produce almost no new insight into the world of football.

The two unbeaten sides are now on the same 20-point mark as Chelsea, which coasted to a 3-0 win at Southampton earlier in the day. "So there is a long way to go and there will be a lot of teams competing but we hope we are one of them".

Obviously a win at Anfield would have been a huge psychological boost for his team, but a 0-0 draw is still a positive result.

"I am so comfortable with the performance".

GRU operatives are also said to be behind the attempted hacking of the World Anti-Doping Agency in Switzerland previous year . What was on their computer? A laptop belonging to one of the four was linked to Brazil, Switzerland and Malaysia.

Both London clubs have enjoyed impressive starts to the 2018-19 campaign, with Chelsea joint-top going into the second global break of the season. It makes no sense to moan about it when you are in it.

"If somebody had told me after eight fixtures 20 points I'd say yes but with this fixture list I would buy it", he added. "But with this fixture list, I would definitely buy it". Klopp's liverpool looked nervous throughout the game, with Salah, Mane and Firmino all off the pace.

Also as a striker, Gabriel Jesus will often get annoyed if the opportunity to put away such a clear chance is taken away from him, which is exactly what happened to him on Sunday evening against Liverpool.

The Algerian was a thorn in Liverpool's side and came close to scoring in open play on a couple of occasions before the penalty. "He's deflated, I think he feels like he's let us down". Sunday's match didn't turn out quite so exciting, as the sides played out a cagey 0-0 draw.

Manchester City were awarded the penalty after a poorly timed tackle from Reds defender Virgil van Dijk on City winger Leroy Sane.

Guardiola said that he had been impressed by Mahrez's penalty-taking in training but later admitted he had been unaware the £60million summer signing had missed four of his previous seven spot-kicks.
