Twitter reacts Manchester City held to goalless draw by Liverpool

"But we played City today".

Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp were happy, but for different reasons after the Premier League powerhouses played out a goalless draw at Anfield on Sunday.

That's the opinion of Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville although Chelsea are on the same points as Liverpool and Man City and Arsenal are only two behind. "I will support Riyad if the manager chooses him again", he said.

Despite Manchester City's record-breaking campaign last season which saw them capture the league title with a century of points, Liverpool got the better of City in three out of the four games they played across all competitions.

"If you want to see fresher, give them a summer break - for Jordan Henderson it was exactly two weeks, which is amusing".

Souness added if you're going to take a penalty from someone, you have to be certain you'll score: 'Yeah you have a nominated penalty taker but if they're having an off day, someone who really fancies themselves, you have to be a good striker of the ball.

"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 worldwide break] healthy and then we go to Huddersfield".

"If somebody would have told me after eight match days you have 20 points, I would say with that fixture list 'I'll buy it, let's start with the ninth match day!'"

The Reds started very much on the front foot, looking the more adventurous side, but the match ended as a stalemate as the two teams showed increasing respect to each other.

Guardiola acknowledged that his side had chosen to lower the tempo in the game to limit the potency of Liverpool's attack.

Guardiola said he was content with a point, despite Riyad Mahrez missing a late penalty given that would have given City a first league win at Anfield in 15 years.

"Up and down they are the best team in the world in these transitions, offensive, defensive, they are built for that".

"I am so comfortable with the performance. At Anfield, that is so complicated".

"This is part of football, sometimes these things happen".
