Fowler told Sky Sports News: "Look, I don't think they're playing as well as what we as fans and I think Jurgen the manager wants".

"To be honest I have never yet been into the city of Liverpool, except to the team hotel with the rest of the squad". Every team in the Premier League wants that, but it's only for a few of them. We have a lot of young talent, and even though I wasn't part of the World Cup squad, I can see everyone is developing really well now and if we can keep progressing over the years, there will be more success down the line. 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. You can see how he's started the season and the World Cup that he had. I like to get out when I can, I go out for food with my team-mates, sometimes my mates will come down and stay with me and I have my family to visit a couple of times a month.

"I still think Manchester City".

"They were very impressive, kept the ball well, controlled the game from a possession point of view, and just looked a lot more unsafe". "As Riyad, I've been practicing [penalties]".

The 27-year-old playmaker has scored seven goals and made three assists in eight Premier League games so far this term to help the Blues up into second place in the table.

Barkley has not played for the Three Lions since the friendly against Australia prior to Euro 2016, but was handed a recall last week by Gareth Southgate as England continue their Nations League campaign against Croatia and Spain.

Liverpool and Man City are tied on points at the top of the table many both of them along with Chelsea are the only teams who are yet to taste defeat in the Premier League.

The German boss said: "I know that people always are talking about - I don't know exactly why - Man City being clear or us being champion at the end of the season or whatever but they completely forgot Chelsea".

"Manchester United have got some ground to make up if they are going to be in contention".
