They were the top two teams in the Premier League heading into this clash and the feeling of respect was palpable during the entire 90 minutes on Sunday at Anfield.

The worldwide break now arrives for Liverpool following a run of seven fixtures in 23 days that included encounters with City, Paris Saint-Germain, Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Napoli.

"If somebody had told me after eight fixtures 20 points I'd say yes but with this fixture list I would buy it", he added.

"We played Chelsea last week, who were excellent".

"It's tough times for the boys, eh?"

"It was seven massive games and I'm really happy with what the boys made out of it, now we have to hope they come back [from the upcoming global break] healthy and then we go to Huddersfield".

"Somebody asked me, 'Is the level of the game (against City) because of the intensity?' - already in the question there is criticism (suggesting) it could have been better if you were fresher".

He noted that his England midfielder Jordan Henderson had barely two weeks' rest following the World Cup in Russian Federation.

"But that's how it is".

Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp took aim at UEFA's new Nations League competition, labelling it "senseless", after his side headed into the global break with a home draw against Premier League leaders Manchester City on Sunday.

As well as the spot-kick City were awarded, for a foul on Leroy Sane by Virgil van Dijk, the visitors had other strong penalty appeals turned down but Guardiola did not complain.

You have to go further down the table to find Manchester United in eighth place and, much like Arsenal, I do not see them as title contenders at all.

Their west London neighbors Chelsea have made an altogether more impressive start to the season and remain undefeated with nine wins from 11 competitive games this season. Instead, he skied it and cost his team a historic win at Anfield. You need to finish.

"You can not defend them over 95 minutes at 100 percent".

"But for us it's another important point, especially going into the global break with a long break until the next game".

Liverpool started the game strongly and troubled Manchester City with their pressing but Pep Guardiola's team settled into the game after a few minutes and controlled the game for most of the first half.

Mendy, who started and played the full 90 against Liverpool having overcome a recent foot injury, knows his side should have claimed a vital victory. Even when we won 3-0 at home, 4-3, 2-1 at City, over the full match it was never like this.

"So there is a long way to go and there will be a lot of teams competing but we hope we are one of them".

"You can not ignore City in the preparation for a City game", Klopp said.
