Liverpool set to break 40-year-old record after Man City result

Klopp Guardiola is the world's best manager

Klopp Guardiola is the world's best manager

Where City have faced a fixture against a team just promoted from the Championship (Wolves, Fulham and Cardiff), last season's data has been taken from the fixture against the team relegated to make way for them (Swansea, West Brom and Stoke). I watched the game on the flight back. We want to create but when you make a mistake.

Klopp echoed Guardiola's sentiments that Liverpool had more than one eye on City ahead of the game, and suggested his team were more reluctant to jump into challenges and press the reigning champs high.

"It was a decision I made and hopefully it will be the last time I make that decision at that time". But this time, they failed to maintain their lead with a boring 0-0 draw.

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.

"Salah remains an excellent player and will score goals in the future".

Saints exposed them at the back but missed two sitters, firstly through Danny Ings to go 1-0 up and then when Ryan Bertrand could have equalised. In the end, however, the teams finished just as they started, playing to a 0-0 draw to split the points.

Unlike the four meetings between the clubs in 2017-18, the 0-0 against City was an encounter with little in the way of genuine goalscoring opportunity.

Pep Guardiola's side suffered three defeats to the Reds last season in the league and Champions League and, as a result, took a more cautious approach than normal at Anfield.

Between 2009 and 2016, he won 61 caps for England, scoring his only global goal against Moldova in a 2014 World Cup qualification game.

Sadio Mane has scored one goal in his last eight appearances for the club, while Roberto Firmino hasn't scored in his last five matches.

That's led to plenty of speculation about problems in the side, with this scoreless display making it four games without a goal for one of their famed attacking trident since all three have been at Anfield.

"It was seven massive games and I'm really happy with what the boys made out of it, now we have to hope they come back [from the upcoming global break] healthy and then we go to Huddersfield".

Yet the Dutchman is adamant the real test is only just starting.
