Liverpool are now level on 20 points with Manchester City and Chelsea at the top of the Premier League after eight games.

Klopp is pleased a hectic schedule of seven matches in 23 days is now over but is unsure what the next fortnight will bring for his players.

"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.

However, manager Jurgen Klopp is doing everything to make sure Salah remains happy on Merseyside it seems. If you want to see fresher, give them a summer break - for Jordan Henderson, it was exactly two weeks, which is amusing.

The midfielder has been held back in the early-going by manager Jürgen Klopp, the German preferring to name familiar faces in his starting XI, namely Jordan Henderson, Georginio Wijnaldum, and James Milner. But that's how it is.

"I've already learned a few things from him, but this is just the start".

Liverpool could have lost the one point they gained if Mahrez didn't miss the penalty.

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.

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.

It was the Algerian international's fourth miss from the spot in his last six.

However, Guardiola admitted his plan for a slower tempo to stop Liverpool springing onto the counter-attack had worked.

"Up and down they are the best team in the world in these transitions, offensive, defensive, they are built for that. That is what Jurgen feels and the players build, and in that situation they are much better". We made it hard for them and they made it hard for us at times, but that's how it is.

Those worries are surely premature, with the intense nature of that run of games being sure to take a toll in the legs of a hard-running outfit at some point, and that aforementioned trip to Yorkshire starts off a more favourable run of fixtures the far side of the upcoming worldwide break. "Maybe next season we will win".

"Both teams did well, and we were a bit lucky with the penalty of course. I know against which team we are playing".

They were the top two teams in the Premier League heading into this clash and the feeling of respect was palpable during the entire 90 minutes on Sunday at Anfield.
