When he is on form and linking up the play, as he was doing for much of today's game, he makes City look nearly unplayable in the middle of the park, regardless of how tightly you press them.

With regular penalty taker Sergio Aguero replaced by Gabriel Jesus, the former Leicester City winger stepped up on 86 minutes after Virgil van Dijk had felled Leroy Sane in a taut Premier League clash.

They slowed the game down to draw Liverpool's sting and silence the usually feverish Anfield crowd, which was quiet for long periods, keeping possession in deep positions. Having played their Champions League game later in the week, and further distance away, than their opponents there was concerns they couldn't keep up their usual intensity.

Guardiola said: "If it is an open game at Anfield, you don't even have one percent of a chance. It looks like they are in a good shape", said Klopp. We know how complicated it is playing in this stadium and how unsafe they are. We controlled it through Riyad Mahrez, Bernardo Silva, the guys to give the extra pass. It is important to give that pace, that up and down. Up and down they are the best team in the world in these transitions. It is built for that.

In the end he was proved correct, because while Jesus was not guaranteed to score, Mahrez missed his penalty spectacularly, a miss which was his fifth out of the last eight penalties he's taken.

"He said "it's too early" to determine the extent of his injury, but that the midfielder had insisted it wasn't a "'big one'". I liked it, but if you want to win against City, you have to use a few of these half-chances. You need to finish.

"We didn't adapt to what Napoli did, and today we were back again so I am fine".

"We played City now very often and they are just outstanding". We should talk about the game, the football.

BACK TO WORK: Unemployment Drops to 3.7%, Lowest Since DECEMBER 1969
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Friday that the economy created 134,000 seasonally adjusted new jobs in September. The unemployment rate among young people (under 30) was 15.9 percent, the unemployment rate among women was 13.4 percent.


The top-of-the-table clash failed to live up to its billing with both sides, the top two Premier League scorers last season, nearly reluctant to commit to full attacking mode for fear of what the other team might do to them if they opened up too much.

"For both teams it was really intense, and both showed respect for the other team". Don't lose the ball in the wrong moment otherwise you will have a big problem.

"We had a clear chance in the last action, so we controlled quite well".

STAR MAN - Much is made of Liverpool's attacking front three, but arguably the most impressive player in a Reds shirt during their attempts to break down City was Andy Robertson.

"It was so intense since the last global break", he said after the game.

"Both teams did well, and we were a bit lucky with the penalty of course".

Goals are guaranteed, they said.

"It shouldn't have happened but obviously I'm happy that we didn't concede". No doubt about that.
