Martin Keown states his prediction for Liverpool FC v Man City

Man City remain team to beat says Klopp

Sterling's experience gave him the edge at times, but Gomez stuck to his task; if he made a mistake, he was able to rectify it nearly instantly. Everyone misses penalties, even big, big players.

"It was a great game to play obviously and it's unlucky that we didn't score and unlucky [for City] that we didn't concede as well". "We control it through Riyad, Bernardo, the guys to give the extra pass".

"They are incredibly quick and we controlled them".

"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".

"It is a point". Unlike last season, Klopp could not call on Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to penetrate City with runs from midfield due to the former Arsenal player's long-term knee injury lay-off. "We had our chance and we tried to be ourselves".

Speaking to Sky Sports ahead of Sunday's crunch clash, Guardiola said: "He (Salah) is younger and it was his first year back in England since his time at Chelsea, so we will see in the future".

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. Mahrez beckoned him away, as if to say "Trust me", but he must have known that his record from 12 yards did not inspire such confidence.

Mahrez collected himself, then approached the ball, but his attempt had too much power in it that the kick went high and over the crossbar as Liverpool keeper Alisson dove with nothing to save but his clean-sheet maintained.

DOJ Indicts 7 Russian Intelligence Officers in International Hacking Scheme
This compromised network was used to steal credentials and compromise members of the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport. Dutch authorities showed photos including one of a gray rented Citroen with its trunk full of hacking equipment.

Opposite number Jurgen Klopp had no issues about the late award of the penalty.

"I would not like to speak about the referees, about the decisions", Guardiola said when asked by Pro Soccer Talk.

"Not taking any notice of who was taking it, so I think it's just decided between the boys".

"He had the courage and the balls to hit the penalty". We were close, more than ever to winning here but it is better than last season, we didn't lose.

"We had on Wednesday a little setback for sure".

It is perhaps understandable they would struggle to deliver the stellar figures they produced last season and there is still plenty of time for them to punish opponents again, but against City they were nowhere near their best. If would have defended today like we did against Napoli, it is 7-0.

Liverpool head into the worldwide break third in the Premier League, behind leaders City on goal difference.

It meant Anfield did not play host to the full-throttle attacking spectacular so many expected - but maybe it was just neither the time nor the place.
