  • Klopp hopes De Bruyne is fit to face Liverpool

But in fairness to the beleaguered Manchester United manager, he would have approved of the defensive performances of Liverpool and Manchester City during Sunday's 0-0 draw at Anfield. If you want to see fresher, give them a summer break - for Jordan Henderson, it was exactly two weeks, which is amusing.

When he is on form and linking up the play, as he was doing for much of today's game, he makes City look nearly unplayable in the middle of the park, regardless of how tightly you press them.

"We had our chance in the last minutes to win the game but we missed it and next time we will try to do better".

Riyad Maherz missed a penalty against Liverpool.

After the goalless draw, Guardiola said: "He (Jesus) wanted to take it".

Joining City and Liverpool is Chelsea, winners on Sunday over Southampton 3-0.

"I think Arsenal have done very well and Unai Emery has done very well but I don't think they're going to be challenging for the title".

"If it is an open game at Anfield, you don't even have one percent of a chance", he said.

The Reds maintained their unbeaten top-flight start against Pep Guardiola's side yesterday, becoming the first team this season to prevent them from scoring and only the third to keep them out since the start of 2017-18.

Nevertheless, the second half started with more goal by both the teams and they got many chances to win the game.

Mahrez, speaking for the first time about the penalty incident, said: 'My record is good in the Champions League yes, but not in the Premier League. You need to finish.

Reflecting on the stalemate, Robertson added: "We started well". Against City, if you don't defend half spaces they are constantly between your midfield and your last line, you have to constantly jump from your last line, which you don't want to do that often.

"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 have a big problem. As it was we didn't score and they could have got a goal so we had to stay switched on. "Riyad feels deflated, he feels he has let us down", he said. They are incredibly quick and we controlled them outstandingly, but we didn't create too much.

Over the course of the 90 minutes at Anfield on Saturday afternoon, hosts Liverpool had 49% of the possession, took seven shots of which two were on target, and earned two corners, according to BBC Sport. I made the decision to shoot in the middle - the ball went up.
