Liverpool vs Man City: three things we learnt

Klopp Guardiola is the world's best manager

Riyad Mahrez missed an 85th-minute penalty as Manchester City wasted a chance to move clear of Premier League title rival Liverpool following a 0-0 draw at Anfield on Sunday. We know how complicated it is playing in this stadium and how risky they are.

Not a great day for anyone at City, but a day which has no doubt greatly improved the Brazilian's chances of being trusted with a penalty next time he's on the pitch. It was pretty surprising to see him take it, considering David Silva and Gabriel Jesus were on the field, and his recent trend of misses make you question why he took it.

Telegraph Sport correspondents assess how each of those five sides have performed so far, and ask which teams are best placed to mount a genuine title challenge and whose seasons will falter. The Reds looked a little jaded midweek in the Champions League encounter away to Napoli, a game which they eventually lost 1-0 after a stoppage-time strike from Lorenzo Insigne.

All three have yet to lose a match this season but while Liverpool have been touted as the main challengers to City, Chelsea have shown they deserve to be in the conversation.

I don't know. I [asked] him: "'Big one?' and he said: "'I don't think so, but big enough that I go off'". "But with this fixture list, I would definitely buy it".

However, Chelsea FC have managed to keep pace with the defending champions and Liverpool FC after eight games despite Maurizio Sarri's appointment on 14 July.

Salah had the first opening after just three minutes when he pulled his shot wide after jinking inside John Stones. "He's deflated, I think he feels like he's let us down".

The Algerian was a thorn in Liverpool's side and came close to scoring in open play on a couple of occasions before the penalty.

Jurgen Klopp slammed the UEFA Nations League as "the most senseless competition in football" following his side's 0-0 draw with 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.
