After City draw, Liverpool's Klopp slams 'senseless' Nations League

Liverpool vs. Manchester City final score, recap: Mahrez misses penalty kick in a scoreless draw Mahrez miss leaves City, Liverpool and Chelsea all level at top
| 10 October, 2018, 09:45

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. He has now failed to score from five of his past eight Premier League penalties. We played so well so if you want to analyse the result it was OK. I don't know. I [asked] him: "'Big one?' and he said: "'I don't think so, but big enough that I go off'".

Alexandre Lacazette scored 17 times in his debut season with Arsenal but the French forward finished last term in danger of becoming an expensive flop.

"If we look at the rest, Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Fabinho and even Gini Wijnaldum to some extent, while they're very good midfielders, they've not got an abundance of goals in them".

"He had the courage and the balls to take the penalty, in training he shoots flawless penalties but sometimes it happens", he said.

Liverpool's Van Dijk gave away a late penalty against Manchester City that was missed by Riyad Mahrez.

Arsenal are climbing up the table after six league wins in a row, and Klopp thinks there will be a cluster of clubs challenging for the title.


"If somebody had told me after eight fixtures 20 points I'd say yes but with this fixture list I would buy it", he added.

The 32-year-old has been in exceptional form for Jurgen Klopp's side this season, having carried across his inspirational form that saw him help Liverpool to the Champions League final last term into the new campaign.

But under their new manager Unai Emery, the Gunners have made sure they keep a close eye on the league leaders and now just 2 points behind them.

Yes, Chelsea are still unbeaten and Sarri has made an impressive start, but they are still a work in progress compared to City and Liverpool, who remain the teams to beat. "It was really intense and both showed respect for the other team", he said.

That's led to plenty of speculation about problems in the side, with this scoreless display making it four games without a goal for one of their famed attacking trident since all three have been at Anfield.
