England can compete with Modric, Rakitic - Barkley

"We have to all keep going and now it is internationals".

Former midfielder and manager Graeme Souness says it is the best Liverpool squad he has seen since then. I'd say the ones that have disappointed have been Manchester United, and to a certain extent, Tottenham.

But Fowler disagrees, saying: "I just think Manchester City are a brilliant side".

"In terms of Arsenal's form, they beat Fulham at the weekend and previous to that they were lucky against Watford and Everton, while only beating Newcastle and Cardiff by the odd goal".

"I think it is not about these games, it is all about the other games, the hard games which we have against mid-table and lower teams", he said, as quoted by The Mirror.

They will have their moments, but I thought we defended them brilliant - apart from the penalty and one or two situations, where we needed Alisson with a really good save. "Things are going really well for me now and I'm fully focused on improving and kicking on".

"Chelsea have just sneaked in there".

The attacking central midfielder is certainly enjoying playing alongside Chelsea's Belgium global Eden Hazard. They were a completely different standard to Southampton.

"They're such an impressive outfit".

"I don't exactly know what you can win but there is some final next summer or something so that's it". They have so much quality and strength in depth and over the course of the season that will give them the edge. Even without someone who was considered to be their best player last season in Kevin De Bruyne, they're still sitting top of the table after eight games.

"But I'd love to play with him for many more years", he said. They should be a couple of points clear but Riyad Mahrez's penalty against Liverpool was an absolute shocker.

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

But after losing on his three previous visits to Anfield as City boss, Guardiola took the positives from taking a point from one of the few venues the champions were defeated last season.

Who will make top four?

Virgil van Dijk believes Manchester City have developed a new respect for Liverpool but insists it will be games against teams outside the top six which will be pivotal to the Reds' Premier League title challenge.
