Liverpool, City in Anfield stalemate, Hazard lifts Chelsea

Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne looks dejected as Liverpool celebrate Sadio Mane scoring his side's third goal during the UEFA Champions League Quarter Final First Leg match

It could have been more rewarding for City, but Riyad Mahrez woefully skied an 86th-minute penalty, awarded for Virgil van Dijk's ill-judged slide on Leroy Sane.

Jurgen Klopp's side managed to beat Pep Guardiola's troops three times in the second half of last season - including in both legs of a Champions League quarter-final.

"You can not defend them over 95 minutes at 100 per cent, 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".

"The attacking threat from their team - we stopped that today".

Liverpool have had three high-profile matches in the last 1 ½ weeks, two against Chelsea and one against Napoli, and its recent exertions seemed to have a negative effect on the team.

We had a little setback on Wednesday for sure.

"We can take a lot of positives from it and be proud of how we performed and look to take that into the next game after the worldwide break". But when a team plays against Liverpool, especially away from home, they simply can not go into the game without some kind of plan to stop the likes of Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane from wreaking havoc.

SCOTUS Nominee Kavanaugh Accused of Throwing Ice at Man in 1985
Ford, who testified before Congress last Thursday, said Kavanaugh assaulted her during a drunken high-school party in the '80s. Two other people who Ms Ford said attended the same party have also been interviewed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation .

Liverpool, now without a win in four games, struggled to test the City goal, leaving goalkeeper Ederson largely untroubled. They are right. So we won the Premier League. "I want to keep doing it and keep everyone happy".

Man City remain top of the table on goal difference but Chelsea have closed the gap on both the holders and Liverpool with a comfortable win on the road at Southampton.

"It's how penalties often are, very close and a bit of a longer toe and he touches the ball".

This has opened the door to potential suitors, with The King Power surfacing as the most likely destination as Clyne looks to revive his football career. "In that situation they are much better than us". However, Klopp's exciting progress with this team means that this group has to deal with more scrutiny.

The game did not live up to expectations but, after suffering two chastening defeats at the same venue last season, Guardiola opted to play at a slower tempo this time in order to nullify Liverpool.

Gomez was given the task of marking former Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling in this game and it was a well-fought battle, with both players having their moments. If somebody would have told me after eight matchdays we would have had 20 points, I would say with pretty much any fixture list I'd have said "yes", but with that fixture list I'd have said "I'll buy it, let's start on the ninth matchday".
