  • Silva was criticised for his team selection against Southampton in midweek

Ahead of the game, Klopp tried to play down Mohamed Salah's slump in form after an incredible 44-goal debut season at Anfield.

"Obviously, yeah. I think to keep a clean sheet after a penalty in the last five minutes makes me a very happy man", said Van Dijk.

"Both teams did well, and we were a bit lucky with the penalty of course".

The game did not live up to expectations but, after suffering two chastening defeats at the same venue last season, Guardiola opted to play at a slower tempo this time in order to nullify Liverpool.

"We stood strong and showed great mental strength", said Stones after the game.

Liverpool full-back Andrew Robertson dismissed suggestions the Premier League title race was already down to two teams.

Riyad Mahrez missed an 85th-minute penalty as Manchester City wasted a chance to move clear of Premier League title rival Liverpool following a 0-0 draw at Anfield on Sunday.

James Milner's hamstring injury changed the complexion of the game as City took advantage of Naby Keita's arrival to exert their influence in opposition territory, although again without any real danger for their hosts.

A message came from the City bench for Mahrez to take the spot-kick instead of Jesus.

Tua Tagovailoa opened Alabama's game vs. Arkansas with a flawless stat line
He entered Week 6 having thrown for 1,161 yards with 14 touchdowns and no interceptions while completing 75 percent of his passes. Irv Smith scored on a 76-yard catch and run that took 21 seconds on Alabama's first snap. "I love it", Tebow said.

Guardiola's side won a late penalty only for Riyad Mahrez to send the ball flying into the sky.

Guardiola spoke before the game about his fear of Liverpool's front three, and that was reflected in his tactics, which were far more conservative than they were last season.

He's a footballer who plays in the position of striker and so it really isn't very surprising that scoring goals is pretty much his modus operandi and probably his favourite thing to do in the world.

The former England worldwide was once again selected to line-up alongside Jordan Henderson and Goerginio Wijnaldum in the middle of the park for Liverpool's top-of-the-table showdown with Manchester City on Sunday.

'We made it hard for them and they made it hard for us at times but that's how it is.

Despite the penalty miss, Guardiola declared himself happy with the point.

"If somebody had told me after eight fixtures 20 points I'd say yes but with this fixture list I would buy it", he added.

I also have my concerns about Sarri's side defensively, namely with David Luiz playing in a four-man defence.
