3 things learned from Liverpool's stalemate with Man City

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

But we have to make sure we manage it until the end of the season to keep it like this.

City's Riyad Mahrez blazed a penalty over the bar five minutes from time at Anfield as Liverpool remained unbeaten at home in the league since April 2017.

"But I think it is not about these games, it is all about the other games, the hard games which we have against mid-table and lower teams".

As I said on Match of the Day on Saturday, what has been happening at United this season has been embarrassing, right through the club.

Statisticians analyse a wide range of shots from Premier League history and, based on factors including the distance from goal, the angle of the shot and the type of opportunity it is, they are able to assign an xG value (expressed as a percentage) to every attempt to determine just how good a chance it is. But I said already in an interview, we have to start thinking about the players.

"[Chelsea] have started the season well".

That's not how they usually do things, at all, but such are the fine margins this season, it proves how much respect they have for one another.

They commit so many men forward that they can be caught on the counter-attack, particularly if their full backs are well advanced, but not many teams have the tools to exploit that. You can not defend over 95 minutes, 100 percent but I thought how we defended was brilliant.

They have scored the most goals and conceded the joint fewest and the concern for their immediate rivals is that it does not feel like City have got close to clicking fully into gear yet, despite some handsome results. In no game, we played so far, the game that kind of level like it was today. "It was really intense and both showed respect for the other team", he said. "I know against which team we are playing".

"We aim to improve every game, even if it is against Chelsea, for example, and we want to win every game".

Yet there was a sense of what could have been for Guardiola, as City had two clear penalty kick shouts in each half (other than the one Mahrez skied).
