Manchester City's Raheem Sterling must handle Liverpool returns better - Pep Guardiola

Jurgen Klopp wants creative playmaker

Jurgen Klopp wants creative playmaker

"Obviously they were a bit cautious of the way we played and I think we have earned that respect", he told reporters.

Of course, I did not expect to be saying that after only eight games.

The Brazilian joined the Reds from Monaco for £43.7m in May, but has featured in just three of the club's 11 matches this season. We want to create but when you make a mistake.

"Absolutely", Metro UK quoted Klopp as saying when asked which team can challenge Man City and Liverpool for this season's Premier League title.

"The reason why last time he didn't [start] - the only time he didn't [start] - was for another reason, a tactical movement, so Kyle Walker can attack more on the right side than him", Guardiola said at a news conference. If Liverpool can keep a clean sheet against Huddersfield then they will break that record for the best defensive start to a season in the club's history. I thought how we defended was brilliant.

Hazard was once again at his imperious best to net his seventh league goal and remain this season's top scorer. In the end, however, the teams finished just as they started, playing to a 0-0 draw to split the points. After the game, Jurgen Klopp opens up about Premier League title race.

The two sides - along with Chelsea - are all locked on 20 points at the top of the Premier League table, separated only by goal difference after Sunday's matches.

With Pep Guardiola likely to welcome back Kevin De Bruyne from injury after the global break, City's attacking options from midfield will enjoy a significant boost.

And to match City, Liverpool must be ruthless against "lesser" opponents.

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.

"I look at Liverpool's midfield and I bet they are three great lads, who work their socks off but they just haven't got that little bit of quality in games like this to look one way and deliver a pass the other way".

"Arsenal is two points behind and they won six games in a row, more with the Cup games".

We have not seen that approach from Guardiola before, but if Riyad Mahrez's late penalty had gone in, his gameplan would have worked to perfection.
