Goals are guaranteed, they said.

The 24-year-old said: "We can do more here". It will never be 0-0, they said.

Liverpool were tipped as the main contenders for defending champions City in the build up to the campaign and have lived up to the billing so far.

That's the opinion of Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville although Chelsea are on the same points as Liverpool and Man City and Arsenal are only two behind.

The blessed relief of a last-gasp penalty miss saw Liverpool play out a scoreless draw against the visiting Manchester City at Anfield this evening and finish out the last in a punishing run of fixtures that saw them play seven games in 22 days.

And City could have secured victory after being awarded an 86 minute penalty when substitute Leroy Sane was brought down in the box.

Yet there was a sense of what could have been for Guardiola, as City had two clear penalty kick shouts in each half (other than the one Mahrez skied).

Raheem Sterling has to learn to cope with facing the abuse he receives when he returns to Anfield, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola said.

That made it a totally different game to their meetings last season. Both managers opted for slightly conservative variants of their usual style.

Many Conservatives expect her to face a leadership challenge soon after Britain leaves the bloc - or even before. Although, added the Guardian , there is quite a lot of skepticism about whether she can deliver.

On Sunday, Guardiola had Kyle Walker at right-back and Benjamin Mendy on the other flank as City looked solid and well-drilled, with pace in every position.

"I then watched the game last Saturday against Liverpool where I thought they were at full pelt to stay in that game".

The extent to which that was City's doing and to which it was down to Liverpool being a little off-colour is hard to say.

Luck was once again not on their side as Guardiola's men controlled large spells of the game but simply couldn't fashion chances when they needed to.

Klopp said: 'Now the players go off and play the Nations League which is the most senseless competition in the world. They also dropped deeper as a back four to deny Liverpool's front three the space to get in behind them and it worked a treat. He touched Sane more.

"It was so intense since the last global break", he said after the game. What few chances there were fell largely City's way.

After Fernandinho blasted an ambitious long-range effort high and wide of the right post in the 58th minute, Mahrez collected David Silva's through-ball on the left and went past Andrew Robertson before fizzing a low shot inches wide of the target from 12 yards out on 61 minutes.

We can play ball to the forward most of the passes to defenders. boring game poor performance.
