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.

Jurgen Klopp has tipped the Emirates outfit to challenge for Premier League title this season. The Reds looked a little jaded midweek in the Champions League encounter away to Napoli, a game which they eventually lost 1-0 after a stoppage-time strike from Lorenzo Insigne. Joining City and Liverpool is Chelsea, winners on Sunday over Southampton 3-0.

With Chelsea making up ground by winning 3-0 at Southampton, the league's three unbeaten teams go into the global break locked together on 20 points.

"When he is a player for a long time with us, hopefully he will be for a long time with us, he will go many, many times to Anfield".

However, City have performed better in their eight games this season than they did in the equivalent fixtures in 2017-18, Gracenote's analysis suggests.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp took aim at UEFA's new Nations League competition, labelling it "senseless", after his side headed into the global break with a home draw against Premier League leaders Manchester City on Sunday. The title race isn't a two horse race. Klopp is likely to keep faith in the front three of Salah, Mane & Firmino as he looks to press Manchester City high up the pitch. Clearly, from the way they set up, neither of them wanted to be beaten, rather than both going looking for the win.

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

"I liked Liverpool last season".

We have not seen that approach from Guardiola before, but if Riyad Mahrez's late penalty had gone in, his gameplan would have worked to perfection.
