Premier League stats: Manchester City could improve on last season, says Gracenote

Pep Guardiola, aware of how twice on this ground last season Liverpool blew them away in a 25-minute spell, appeared to have set up his side to absorb much of the early and take the sting out of Liverpool with a view to capitalising later on. In fact, I am still not sure they will make it into the top four.

"We stood strong and showed great mental strength", said Stones after the game.

Jurgen Klopp has branded the UEFA Nations League "the most senseless competition in the world" as he prepares to see many of his squad leave on global duty following Liverpool's drab 0-0 draw with Manchester City.

And to match City, Liverpool must be ruthless against "lesser" opponents.

"It was not smart from me personally and hopefully it will never happen again", he said.

He does believe Liverpool will be one of them, though.

He was very impressive for Belgium at the World Cup and has carried on in this campaign where he left off in Russian Federation - he was sensational again on Sunday to help his side beat Southampton. The Cityzens are level on points with Chelsea and Liverpool but their goal differential is better than the other two.




I also have my concerns about Sarri's side defensively, namely with David Luiz playing in a four-man defence.

"Pep Guardiola came out of his technical area and was pointing at someone, while Benjamin Mendy got involved".

Nevertheless, the second half started with more goal by both the teams and they got many chances to win the game. Seems like Liverpool are going with a 4-3-3, whilst Naby Keita makes the bench after recovering from the back spasm he suffered against Napoli midweek.

Both managers approached the game as if it was an important one in the title race.

The 32-year-old has been in exceptional form for Jurgen Klopp's side this season, having carried across his inspirational form that saw him help Liverpool to the Champions League final last term into the new campaign.

"I also have a lot of credit for Kyle (Walker) today and how he controlled (Sadio) Mane", he added. We tried to win but at the end we need to be happy - I need to be happy - that we didn't lose it because of the penalty.

Yes it made for a drab game this time, but their real battle is only just beginning.
