Van Dijk's verdict on penalty and City stalemate

Liverpool vs. Manchester City final score, recap: Mahrez misses penalty kick in a scoreless draw MAHREZ BOTTLED IT! Liverpool 0-0 Man City | Match Reaction & Player Ratings

It was particularly tough to take for Jesus, who was keen to take the penalty only to be ushered away by Mahrez, who has missed five of his past eight penalties.

But there was late drama when Virgil van Dijk brought down Leroy Sane with a few minutes to play. As it was we didn't score and they could have got a goal so we had to stay switched on.

City, meanwhile, adjusted shape, the usual 4-3-3 becoming 4-4-2 with David Silva operating as a second striker behind Sergio Aguero.

Klopp and his City counterpart Pep Guardiola were satisfied with their team's displays in a tight, tactical encounter which finished 0-0 at Anfield, but the German was clearly frustrated to now lose his players for global duty. After their pulsating clashes in the UEFA Champions League and the 4-3 thriller in the Premier League in 2018, this affair was more pragmatic with possession nearly equal and big chances also shared evenly.

Last season, Salah scored from 35, six and nine yards in three consecutive matches against City to emerge as Liverpool's talisman and their rivals' nemesis. Don't lose the ball in the wrong moment, otherwise you have big problems.

So far this season they have played 24 games in all competitions and scored nine.

Family issues like this exist because one member of the family ghosted both sides and her best friend of 30 years. New mother Rosie has even been posting daily reminders to her 8.5 million Instagram followers.

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 shouldn't have happened but obviously I'm happy that we didn't concede".

Pep Guardiola, aware of how twice on this ground last season Liverpool blew them away in a 25-minute spell, appeared to have set up his side to absorb much of the early and take the sting out of Liverpool with a view to capitalising later on. I would not like to speak about the referees, about the decisions.

"It was easy to adjust because we made not too many mistakes at Napoli, but a massive one formation-wise".

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. We played very strong and hard today and missed some chances.
