Pep Guardiola shows biggest respect to Liverpool with explanation of game plan

Mohamed Salah out for Ian Rush's Manchester City record

Liverpool have started so well, they have the same points us, but we were expecting that all along.

It took until the 62nd minute for both teams to register a shot on target as they cancelled each other out, before City were given a golden opportunity when Virgil van Dijk was adjudged to have upended Leroy Sane in the penalty area.

In a game that saw little goalmouth action, City edged the midfield battle and could have been rewarded all three points via a late 86th minute penalty. It was pretty surprising to see him take it, considering David Silva and Gabriel Jesus were on the field, and his recent trend of misses make you question why he took it.

After the game, Van Dijk accepted the referee was right to point to the spot and expressed his relief that the incident did not cost his team - as Riyad Mahrez sent the kick over the crossbar.

A 0-0 draw between Liverpool and Manchester City showed how closely matched these two teams are, with both Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola setting their teams up to defend first and attack second.

Eden Hazard was the inspiration as Chelsea, also undefeated this season, cruised to a 3-0 victory at Southampton. Only Bournemouth, Chelsea, Watford and Wolves have made fewer line-up changes than Liverpool's eight line-up changes in the Premier League this season, with each member of their front three starting every game in addition to featuring prominently in the cup competitions.

"When we came back from the worldwide break last time, it was clear", he said. And we hope that they come back healthy and play these easy competitions, the Premier League, the Champions League and all this.

"It is a very intense, unbelievable challenge to face Manchester City always - I've said that before - and as the last game of an hard period, it makes the challenge even bigger, so I am really happy with what the boys did", Klopp said. "I am really happy with what the boys did". Even when we won 3-0 at home and 4-3 at home, it was not like that. "He was on the pitch when the first penalty was not given", the City manager said. We were close, more than ever to winning here but it is better than last season, we didn't lose. In that situation they are much better than us. You have to invest absolutely everything and think we did really well. We had our chance.
