Liverpool, Man City tie in cautious matchup

Riyad Mahrez Mahrez deflated by Anfield penalty miss- Stones
Noah Ferguson | 08 October, 2018, 09:42

Pep Guardiola insists Liverpool's Mohamed Salah has lost none of his goal-scoring prowess, but the Manchester City boss claims the Egyptian must repeat last season's prodigious feats before he can match Sergio Aguero.

City's tactics were so successful that Liverpool failed to register a single shot on target for the first in the first half of a Premier League game for the first time since November 2017 against Chelsea.

In a game that promised so much but delivered so little drama until Riyad Mahrez struck that late spot-kick halfway to Pluto, Bernardo was the nearest thing to an outstanding performer, not just because of the way that he played but because of how much rested on him doing it well. Liverpool have started so well, they have the same points us, but we were expecting that all along. Liverpool winger Salah has made a more modest start to 2018-19, certainly in comparison to last season's 44-goal campaign, with just three goals to date.

Guardiola blocked Gabriel Jesus from taking the 85th-minute penalty against Liverpool, which would have secured City's first league win at Anfield for 15 years.

"Now the players go off and play the Nations League which is the most senseless competition in the world of football", said Klopp, who urged the soccer authorities to look at the issue of players being overused. "The teams did well and we were a bit lucky with the penalty, of course, that is clear". "They're a good team and we knew it was going to be hard but I'm happy with not losing".

Klopp can take comfort from a run of four games in all competitions without a win by studying the Premier League table, which has them in third place, only behind City and Chelsea on goal difference. It is for both teams it was really intense and both showed respect for the other team. Don't lose the ball in the wrong moment otherwise you will have a big problem.

Jurgen Klopp is satisfied with Liverpool's position heading into the worldwide break but is not so happy with his players being taken away to play in "the most senseless competition in the world". It is so hard to defend so I am really happy how we did it. "Tottenham as well", the Spaniard added. But Mahrez, who had fought off Gabriel Jesus to take the spot-kick, ballooned his effort over the bar. One situation and they are alone in front of your goalie, or alone in the box and they shoot and score an easy goal. As it was we didn't score and they could have got a goal so we had to stay switched on.

"I've said it a few times, that if we couldn't be champions last season then Manchester City are very welcome", Klopp told Sky Sports. "We had our chance".
