After City draw, Liverpool's Klopp slams 'senseless' Nations League

Liverpool vs. Manchester City final score, recap: Mahrez misses penalty kick in a scoreless draw

The 0-0 draw also means Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea have conceded the least amount of goals. But after eight games I still think it's very early to think about Chelsea challenging (Man City or Liverpool)'.

Liverpool started the game strongly and troubled Manchester City with their pressing but Pep Guardiola's team settled into the game after a few minutes and controlled the game for most of the first half. "That is what Jurgen feels and the players build, and in that situation they are much better".

"We played City now very often and they are just outstanding. We had our chances as well, it was not as if it was their game", said Gomez, who admitted they were fortunate to escape with Mahrez's failure from the spot.

Could Chelsea or Arsenal pip Man City to the title? Maybe when we won 2-1 at City, they pushed us in our own 18-yard box and we didn't know exactly how to come out. You can get three points or one point or no points.

Liverpool are nine points better off than at the same stage last season, and Van Dijk remains satisfied, if not complacent. And in no game we played so far, the game was level like it was today.

There is confidence around Anfield after the team matched City and second place Chelsea, who have both had easier runs over the same period. "I know against which team we are playing".

Gyroscope malfunction forces Hubble Space Telescopes into safe mode
But it has been in "safe mode" since Friday after one of the three gyroscopes used to aim and steady the telescope failed. As a result, Hubble is in so-called safe mode with non-essential systems turned off.

"Absolutely", Metro UK quoted Klopp as saying when asked which team can challenge Man City and Liverpool for this season's Premier League title. We tried to win but at the end we need to be happy - I need to be happy - that we didn't lose it because of the penalty.

"You can not ignore City in the preparation for a City game", Klopp said. I thought how we defended was brilliant.

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.

"After the global break there are three important games against Huddersfield, Red Star and Cardiff so we want to be ready for that".

"We were close more than ever to win here".
