Gabriel Jesus unhappy he was not allowed to take Manchester City penalty

When he is on form and linking up the play, as he was doing for much of today's game, he makes City look nearly unplayable in the middle of the park, regardless of how tightly you press them.

But when Virgil van Dijk caught Leroy Sane in the closing stages, Mahrez had a golden chance to win the game, instead blasting his spot-kick over the crossbar.

He twice waved away penalty appeals from City, as well as overlooking some strong challenges from Pep Guardiola's side, before eventually awarding the visitors a spot-kick late on.

It resulted in the first goalless draw between these two at Anfield since 1986 - and also City's first clean sheet at the ground since then - but Reds boss Jurgen Klopp will be celebrating Monday's third anniversary at the club as the happier manager.

As for what it means for the standings, there is now a three-way tie for first with teams having records of 6-2-0.

With Chelsea making up ground by winning 3-0 at Southampton, the league's three unbeaten teams go into the global break locked together on 20 points.

Liverpool registered three wins over Man City last season. "I want to keep doing it and keep everyone happy". We have to start thinking about the players.

There was no shortage of goals at Craven Cottage where Arsenal, who lost their opening two league games, provided further proof that they are starting to gel under new manager Unai Emery.

"He had the courage and the balls to hit the penalty".

Jesus, who replaced Agüero in the 65th minute at Anfield, believed he was supposed to be City's second choice penalty taker behind the Argentina worldwide.

"Now the players go off and play the Nations League which is the most senseless competition in the world of football", said Klopp, who urged the soccer authorities to look at the issue of players being overused. "In the training sessions he shoot the ideal penalties, but that sometimes happens and in the end, that is what it is".

"He said "it's too early" to determine the extent of his injury, but that the midfielder had insisted it wasn't a "'big one'".

After a blistering start from Liverpool, Pep Guardiola's side recovered and pressed the home side but they held on until the interval. Liverpool and Manchester City hadn't drawn 0-0 since 1986, they said. "We had our chance". As it was we didn't score and they could have got a goal so we had to stay switched on. "It happens, so we had to move on", the England defender said. I don't know. I [asked] him: "'Big one?' and he said: "'I don't think so, but big enough that I go off'".
