3 things learned from Liverpool's stalemate with Man City

3 things learned from Liverpool's stalemate with Man City

Those worries are surely premature, with the intense nature of that run of games being sure to take a toll in the legs of a hard-running outfit at some point, and that aforementioned trip to Yorkshire starts off a more favourable run of fixtures the far side of the upcoming global break. Last season we lost here, and this season we drew.

Games against Tottenham Hotspur, Paris Saint-Germain, Southampton, Chelsea (twice), Napoli and then City provided stern tests of the Reds' early-season mettle. Manchester City got the biggest chance to seal the game when Lorey Sane was knocked down by Virgil van Dijk in his own penalty area and the Cityzens' were handed a spot kick.

In the first match of the day, Unai Emery's Arsenal turned on the style on the banks of the River Thames to climb into the Premier League's top four.

All that plus a fit again De Bruyne to come back?

The global break now arrives for Liverpool following a run of seven fixtures in 23 days that included encounters with City, Paris Saint-Germain, Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Napoli.

Quoted in the Mirror, he said: 'It won't affect me at all.

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.

Credit to the Dutchman, however, for recognising his error and owning up to it; that is the kind of leadership and responsibility that Liverpool wanted when they broke the world record for a defender to sign Van Dijk. "Sometimes you have to be fearless and we weren't able to do that".

'My process to adapt to English football has been very good. "I'm so comfortable (with) the performance we have done".

Teams have struggled to contain Man City ever since Pep Guardiola arrived at the club in the summer of 2016.

What Jurgen Klopp said is true.

"And with City eyeing further progress in the Champions League - where they will face other fast, reactive teams - Mahrez feels the knowledge that they can be canny at the back and still trouble teams going forward, is a big stride forward".

Milner has been a key part of Klopp's side this season as the 32-year-old has started 10 of Liverpool's 11 matches in all competitions this campaign with the midfielder chipping in with 2 goals and 2 assists so far.
