Liverpool have started so well, they have the same points us, but we were expecting that all along.
City probably asked more questions than Liverpool and such was their quality on the ball, they always looked in control and had Riyad Mahrez not missed his 86th minute penalty kick you couldn't argue with the reigning champs edging this one.
Guardiola deployed the pace and height of John Stones and Aymeric Laporte at centre-back: last season, the less mobile and imposing Nicolas Otamendi played in both away games and was swamped by Liverpool's front three. While he can be quite efficient from free kicks, it seems like the next time, somebody else should take the penalty kicks.
The last edition of this Premier League fixture saw Liverpool win 4-3, and the five most recent clashes have all featured at least three goals. After none of these games you go into the dressing room and think, "Now we've got it, now we know how to beat City", because there is no real way, no one thing that you have to do.
I just can't see this being anything else but an intense, high-octane shootout, with so many outstanding attacking talents on show. Also, City have lost just one of their last 25 away games in the top flight, and they are yet to taste defeat in the PL this term.
Guardiola enthused about how the visitors operated out of possession and controlled the tempo of the encounter to nullify Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Firmino.
With a place at the top of the Premier League before the global break at stake, the pressure was on Liverpool to make a statement win, however in truth they were fortunate to draw. Sergio has scored a lot of goals, but there were periods when he didn't score.
City's tactics were so successful that Liverpool failed to register a single shot on target for the first in the first half of a Premier League game for the first time since November 2017 against Chelsea. It is so hard to defend so I am really happy how we did it.
The Dutch defender told Sky Sports: "It was not smart to dive in there - it was a penalty and I said that to the referee afterwards". We controlled it through Riyad Mahrez, Bernardo Silva, the guys to give the extra pass. He touched Sane more.
"It is not the most important penalty in the history of football because it didn't go in". How to re-energise the attack and offer a threat between the lines from midfield will top Klopp's thinking during the global break, although it is worth pointing out that it wasn't until October 17 last season when the triumvirate truly started to blitz and bruise opponents.
Sergio Aguero found the back of the net in both matches, and City's defense has conceded just one goal over the four-game stretch. Those are the reasons I wanted to come here to pit my wits against people like that and his teams and challenge myself, really.
