"It was seven massive games and I'm really happy with what the boys made out of it, now we have to hope they come back [from the upcoming global break] healthy and then we go to Huddersfield". In fact, I am still not sure they will make it into the top four. If Liverpool can keep a clean sheet against Huddersfield then they will break that record for the best defensive start to a season in the club's history.

The previously unstoppable Liverpool registered just two efforts on target, with City mustering the same.

"I took the decision to shoot and the ball went up".

"It was not smart from me personally and hopefully it will never happen again", he said.

And former defender Jamie Carragher believes the performance highlights Liverpool's lack of options in the middle of the park.

Liverpool will be looking to getting back to winning ways, having gone without a victory in their last three games in all competitions.

But my worry with Chelsea is where their other goals will come from if Hazard stops scoring as regularly, because their main strikers Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata are not exactly prolific. Regardless of the result, I'm expecting goals plenty of talking points and some red-hot chat on the live blog! City left-back Benjamin Mendy was yellow carded for pulling back Mohamed Salah, when the Liverpool forward threaten to go past him, but the Egypt worldwide was unable to exert his influence on this match.

The manner in which both teams pressed each other didn't lead to the goal fest many predicted, but it made for a very tight, tense and intense match.

Klopp did not push his full-backs - Andy Robertson and Joe Gomez - up the pitch because he knew City could hurt Liverpool on the break.

"I also have a lot of credit for Kyle (Walker) today and how he controlled (Sadio) Mane", he added.

Twitter reacted to the draw and here are some of the best tweets.

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 had a couple of decent openings on Sunday, but failed to really test Ederson.
