Man City forward Gabriel Jesus 'not happy' at Pep Guardiola penalty decision

  • Klopp Guardiola is the world's best manager

Currently, when the team is not managed by Jose Mourinho.

But despite their scintillating form, Neville doubts Arsenal or Chelsea will challenge Manchester City and Liverpool for the title. There was none of the champagne football of recent encounters, no stunning passages of play, no moments of magic from Mohamed Salah or David Silva.

Ahead of Liverpool's clash with Manchester City, Jurgen Klopp hails Pep Guardiola as the world's greatest manager.

James Milner's hamstring injury changed the complexion of the game as City took advantage of Naby Keita's arrival to exert their influence in opposition territory, although again without any real danger for their hosts. "In the training session he shoots flawless penalties, and ok this sometimes happens so at the end it is what it is".

The scintillating football of the opening weeks of the season has been dulled a touch towards the end of that jam-packed schedule over the last few games, in particular in a flat 1-0 reverse away to Napoli in the Champions League midweek.

Who has shone and who needs to up their game?

Last season, City conceded seven goals in two games against Liverpool at Anfield in the league and Champions League; something had to change and there was a distinct difference to the way his team approached this fixture.

The 21-year-old striker, who has scored just two goals this season, said: "Pep spoke with me". Benjamin Mendy has recovered in time and starts at left-back.

"As a back four that is what we are aiming for".

He added: "My relationship with my team-mates has also been very good, especially with the Brazilians like Roberto Firmino, who has been helping me, and also Alisson".

Pompeo says North Korea ready to let inspectors into missile, nuclear sites
Trump met with Kim in Singapore in June and - at the time - announced that the two countries are set to " start a new history ". Pompeo told South Korean President Moon Jae-in that the meeting was "another step forward " in the denuclearisation process.

The Brazilian midfielder, who has linked up with his country for the global break, has played three times for the Reds this season totalling 101 minutes.

"We were so defensively solid". Their manager was pleased to be through the other side of it.

Liverpool also played with one eye on the clean sheet, for maybe different reasons. Klopp feels the schedule has been tough and is concerned about the continuing workload on players.

"They [City] can make so many changes and they are still so strong".

It took until the 62nd minute for both teams to register a shot on target as they cancelled each other out, before City were given a golden opportunity when Virgil van Dijk was adjudged to have upended Leroy Sane in the penalty area.

Firstly, Sergio Agüero and Dejan Lovren came together. Will he deliver what the fans want to do? or will he struggle against Guardiola's city?

So did City and Liverpool park the bus?

The good news for Liverpool is that, now the defensive problems seem to have been solved, they can win matches even when the front three aren't performing.

The well known pundit was joined by former Red Craig Bellamy for a meeting of the minds, and between them they managed to produce almost no new insight into the world of football.
