Better Things Around The Corner For Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool

Liverpool have faced Spurs, Chelsea and City in three of their past four league games, winning one and drawing two.

The blessed relief of a last-gasp penalty miss saw Liverpool play out a scoreless draw against the visiting Manchester City at Anfield this evening and finish out the last in a punishing run of fixtures that saw them play seven games in 22 days.

"I think to keep a clean sheet after a penalty in the last five minutes makes me a very happy man".

Liverpool played out a 0-0 draw with Champions Man City yesterday, meaning that both teams and Chelsea sit joint top of the table on 20 points as we head into the worldwide break. They have been on a great run.

"It's not even necessarily having someone who comes in and plays every single game". You see teams like Arsenal, with a new manager, putting great results together.

"Stones and Laporte are good and they are so young but they need experience in games like today on big stages like Anfield against maybe the most risky three strikers in the world". "It's a good draw and we deserved to win".

The president leaves the White House Friday morning and is expected to arrive at Orlando International Airport at 12:40 p.m. Both men will likely see their futures re-evaluated after the elections, Trump advisers have said.

Reflecting on the stalemate, Robertson added: "We started well". So stick around and I'll give you instant highlights of the goals as they go in, along with the usual pre-match chat. "Don't write Chelsea out but they need a real 'goal-getter".

The manner in which both teams pressed each other didn't lead to the goal fest many predicted, but it made for a very tight, tense and intense match.

Saints exposed them at the back but missed two sitters, firstly through Danny Ings to go 1-0 up and then when Ryan Bertrand could have equalised. But when a team plays against Liverpool, especially away from home, they simply can not go into the game without some kind of plan to stop the likes of Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane from wreaking havoc.

The two unbeaten sides are now on the same 20-point mark as Chelsea, which coasted to a 3-0 win at Southampton earlier in the day.

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.
