For Liverpool to be joint-top of the Premier League; and still in a strong Champions League position shows they have navigated that early sticky period expertly.

He has never produced his best form at his old club - losing all four games with City - and was a substitute for their most recent clash in April, when City were beaten 3-0 in the Champions League quarterfinal.

While talking with Sky Sports, he said "If Liverpool are in a really good position in January, I think they've got to be looking to address that [midfield area]", and added "It's not even necessarily having someone who comes in and plays every single game".

That's led to plenty of speculation about problems in the side, with this scoreless display making it four games without a goal for one of their famed attacking trident since all three have been at Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp has branded the UEFA Nations League "the most senseless competition in the world" as he prepares to see many of his squad leave on global duty following Liverpool's drab 0-0 draw with Manchester City. "The boys unfortunately go away again now and have to play Nations Cup games - the most senseless competition in the world of football". They will play Huddersfield town after the worldwide break and then will host the Serbian team, Red Star Belgrade at Anfield for their next Champions League game.

City's Riyad Mahrez blazed a penalty over the bar five minutes from time at Anfield as Liverpool remained unbeaten at home in the league since April 2017. After the game, Jurgen Klopp opens up about Premier League title race.

City were also a lot more pragmatic than usual and did not commit as many men forward as normal - for example their full-backs Benjamin Mendy and Kyle Walker, who were both aware of the threat Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah posed on the counter. Sooner or later they will win it, no?

Yes it made for a drab game this time, but their real battle is only just beginning.
