MAHREZ BOTTLED IT! Liverpool 0-0 Man City | Match Reaction & Player Ratings

Kyle Walker says whoever wins Liverpool v Man City will be favourites for the title

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.

The Premier League clash finished goalless, meaning City, Liverpool and Chelsea are joint-top of the table going into the second worldwide break of the season.

"It's very tough, probably the toughest away game of the season in the Premier League", the Germany global told ESPN FC.

However, City soon began to take control of proceedings and had a strong shout for a penalty, when Dejan Lovren and Sergio Aguero tangled in the penalty area. We have many of them.

"I am really happy with what the boys did today", Klopp said.

That's led to plenty of speculation about problems in the side, with this scoreless display making it four games without a goal for one of their famed attacking trident since all three have been at Anfield. Liverpool was never able to build up the sort of momentum it had for spells all three of the games it won against City last season. They've started the season well.

Fulham, who equalized through Andre Schurrle, have the worst defensive record in the Premier League and have now conceded 21 goals this season.

After Fernandinho blasted an ambitious long-range effort high and wide of the right post in the 58th minute, Mahrez collected David Silva's through-ball on the left and went past Andrew Robertson before fizzing a low shot inches wide of the target from 12 yards out on 61 minutes.

Their west London neighbors Chelsea have made an altogether more impressive start to the season and remain undefeated with nine wins from 11 competitive games this season.

Barkley's goal came via his knee from a few meters out and completed a memorable few days for the midfielder who has been recalled to the England squad for the forthcoming games against Croatia and Spain.

"It is an unbelievable challenge to face Man City and as the last game it makes the challenge even bigger", Klopp said.

"If somebody would have told me after eight matchdays we would have had 20 points, I would say with pretty much any fixture list I'd have said "yes", he added. We know this club how complicated it is playing in this stadium and how unsafe they are.

"We had a chance at 0-0 for Danny Ings, if that goes in we get a different frame of mind", he said.

Pressed further, he said: 'Well the taker is Sergio, he was not there, but we practice, that sometimes happens.
