After City draw, Liverpool's Klopp slams 'senseless' Nations League

Silva was criticised for his team selection against Southampton in midweek

Silva was criticised for his team selection against Southampton in midweek

It took until the 62nd minute for both teams to register a shot on target as they cancelled each other out, before City were given a golden opportunity when Virgil van Dijk was adjudged to have upended Leroy Sane in the penalty area.

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

Yes, Chelsea are still unbeaten and Sarri has made an impressive start, but they are still a work in progress compared to City and Liverpool, who remain the teams to beat.

"Obviously, I'm not happy", he said, according to the Daily Mail.

Klopp and his City counterpart Pep Guardiola were satisfied with their team's displays in a tight, tactical encounter which finished 0-0 at Anfield, but the German was clearly frustrated to now lose his players for global duty. Dejan Lovern has been handed his first Premier League start of the season, Trent Alexander Arnold is on the bench.

Arsenal have won six consecutive games in the league and sit just two points behind the leaders, with Unai Emery's side in the top four for the first time in 2018.

Arsenal lost to Manchester City and Chelsea FC in their opening two Premier League fixtures to raise questions about Emery's ability to overhaul the Gunner side. After all, Liverpool beat City twice at home last season, by a combined scored of 7-3. But sometimes it is simply a failure - or reluctance - to acknowledge the part of the game that is crucial for any team with aspirations of winning major honours.

In that season the Reds went on to concede one goal in a 4-1 victory over Norwich City in their ninth game.

"It showed we are not just a team that wants to play and leaves big spaces, but we are a team who want to be strong defensively".

Nevertheless, the second half started with more objective by both the teams and they got many chances to win the game. "I think what happened in the summer with Liverpool, signing Fabinho, signing Keita, and also trying to get Fekir from Lyon, I think that tells you how Jurgen sees the midfield". Klopp feels the schedule has been tough and is concerned about the continuing workload on players. After a tough trip away to Napoli in the Champions League where the front three just didn't click, Liverpool again looked quite boring in attack.
