Robertson: Title race not just between Liverpool and City

Souness also believes that Klopp needs a player with that special bit of skill to win a game while also being industrious without the ball.

Pep Guardiola's City was denied a penalty claim in the 20th minute when Sergio Aguero was fouled by Dejan Lovren but, that incident apart, there was little to get the crowd excited in the first half.

Mourinho has been roundly criticised in the past two seasons after his United team emerged from Anfield with successive 0-0 draws. "It was a decision I made and hopefully it will be the last time I make that decision at that time". We want to create but when you make a mistake - if it is an open game at Anfield, you don't even have one per cent of a chance.

The blessed relief of a last-gasp penalty miss saw Liverpool play out a scoreless draw against the visiting Manchester City at Anfield this evening and finish out the last in a punishing run of fixtures that saw them play seven games in 22 days.

Jordan Henderson was surrounded by some Manchester City players who are capable of playing the pressing game really well.

"But during the training sessions I see (Mahrez) taking the penalties and it gives me a lot of confidence".

Griffen said he doesn't know exactly when he'll be back in uniform, but he plans to "return as a much-improved person and player". We've got to take care of our jobs. "He's a good runner, so play action bought him some time, so that's what delayed the rush".

"And Arsenal are two points behind and they won six games in a row".

The Liverpool defender admitted it was "not smart" to dive in on Leroy Sané during the stalemate on Sunday and he was hugely relieved when Riyad Mahrez blazed the 86th-minute penalty over the bar.

The Blues were 3-0 winners against Southampton at St Mary's on Sunday after Eden Hazard scored his seventh goal of the Premier League season to hoist the Blues to second place in the table.

Do you think Guardiola should have let the Brazilian step up for the penalty?

But despite their scintillating form, Neville doubts Arsenal or Chelsea will challenge Manchester City and Liverpool for the title. Pep Guardiola's team will play Burnley after the global break and will then make a trip to Ukraine to play Shakhtar Donetsk for their next Champions League match.

I also have my concerns about Sarri's side defensively, namely with David Luiz playing in a four-man defence. "How we played was different to previous seasons".
