Manchester City’s tactics a compliment to Liverpool, says Virgil van Dijk

Liverpool played out a 0-0 draw with Champions Man City yesterday, meaning that both teams and Chelsea sit joint top of the table on 20 points as we head into the worldwide break. They will have their moments, but I thought we defended them brilliant - apart from the penalty and one or two situations, where we needed Alisson with a really good save.

Liverpool had won their last three meetings with City prior to Sunday and it took until the 62nd minute for either team to register a single shot on target at Anfield as both teams cancelled each other out. And we hope that they come back healthy and play these easy competitions, the Premier League, the Champions League and all this. "I will support Riyad if the manager chooses him again".

'Eighty-five minutes, you obviously get a bit tired, and that moment goes by in a split second and I made a decision to dive in, which is not what I would normally do.

They are unbeaten in the top flight and, though they were knocked out of the Carabao Cup by Chelsea, also recorded an impressive 3-2 victory over Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.

"If somebody would have told me after eight matchdays you have 20 points, I would say with that fixture list: 'I'll buy it, let's start with the ninth matchday, '" Klopp said.

'We want to get as close as possible and do as well as we can but we know it is going to be hard.

Where feasible, they have then compared it with data from last season's corresponding game against the same opponents. We've had a great start to the season and we want to keep it going.

"We deserved to win, but sometimes it's important not to lose, as well". Pep Guardiola's team will play Burnley after the worldwide break and will then make a trip to Ukraine to play Shakhtar Donetsk for their next Champions League match.

Van Dijk has been one of the biggest influences in Liverpool's new found belief, the Reds not conceding a league goal at Anfield since February, and recording more clean sheets than any other English club in that period.

Although the initial assessment from the player himself was hopeful, according to manager Jurgen Klopp, there were fears he could be sidelined for a significant length of time.

'After the worldwide break there are three important games against Huddersfield, Red Star and Cardiff so we want to be ready for that'.
