Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville slams three players after Man City draw

  • Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola

"We've played City now that often and they're just outstanding".

Virgil van Dijk admitted it was the correct call to award Manchester City a penalty in Sunday's Premier League clash at Anfield. However, Klopp's exciting progress with this team means that this group has to deal with more scrutiny.

The total of 109km distance covered was their joint-second-lowest of the season so far, but they made 129 high-intensity sprints - more than in any other game this season with the exception of last weekend's 1-1 draw with Chelsea. In Guardiola's three seasons at Bayern Munich, he won the Bundesliga three times, and two of those were while Klopp was at Borussia Dortmund.

In a game that saw little goalmouth action, City edged the midfield battle and could have been rewarded all three points via a late 86th minute penalty.

"I've said it a few times, that if we couldn't be champions last season then Manchester City are very welcome", the Liverpool boss told Sky Sports.

Midfielder Naby Keita is struggling to be fit after a back spasm, so skipper Jordan Henderson could return to the starting XI.

In the cases of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, however, recent performances suggests they may be feeling jaded.

Can Pep solve the Anfield puzzle?

However, when asked if De Bruyne was in with a chance of featuring against Liverpool, Guardiola remained coy. Fabian Delph has been ruled out.

Good evening! Welcome to the Live Updates for Liverpool Vs Man City in a top of the table clash. With Liverpool trading at [2.6], there is scope to back the hosts using the Draw No Bet market at [1.9].

"Yeah, if you play so quick they are much better than us", he said.

The Premier League's two title favourites huffed and puffed but, ultimately, neither team was able to blow the house down at Anfield. And while Guardiola, diplomatically, name checked the division's other leading sides, he did concede that he expected Jurgen Klopp's team to be prime contenders in this season. "I am really happy with what the boys did".

"Liverpool are a strong team but so are Chelsea, and Arsenal, Manchester United". As they head off to different corners of the world, his concern is that they will not get the rest they need. He's trading at [3.15] to score in 90 minutes.

Even though City weren't blessed with regular penalty takers on the bench, surely they had someone better equipped to step up - even Ederson in net!
