Liverpool fans react to Jordan Henderson display against Manchester City

When he is on form and linking up the play, as he was doing for much of today's game, he makes City look nearly unplayable in the middle of the park, regardless of how tightly you press them.

Manchester City are awarded a penalty by referee Martin Atkinson after Manchester City's Leroy Sane is brought down by Liverpool's Virgil van Dijk.

The City manager apologised to the Brazil worldwide after refusing his request to take the 86th minute spot-kick that could have delivered a significant victory at Anfield on Sunday.

As for what it means for the standings, there is now a three-way tie for first with teams having records of 6-2-0.

The Cityzens are level on points with Chelsea and Liverpool but their goal differential is better than the other two.

Sterling, 23, has been booed during each game at Liverpool since his acrimonious move to City in 2015.

'I watched it because I wanted to get the rebound but I was very happy that it didn't go in. We used the ball better.

"Today they've done particularly well [against Southampton] but in a game you'd think they would do well". All of Liverpool's starting front six had been involved in both the defeat away to Napoli on Wednesday and the draw at Chelsea last Saturday, and it may be they were suffering a touch of fatigue after three such tough games in a week.

However, the former Leicester man skied the penalty, but Guardiola backed Mahrez.

"When I was up there doing commentary, I could see the goalkeeping coach John Achterberg", Carragher said.

Jesus, who replaced Agüero in the 65th minute at Anfield, believed he was supposed to be City's second choice penalty taker behind the Argentina worldwide. We played so well so if you want to analyse the result it was okay.

"For both teams it was really intense, and both showed respect for the other team. It looks like they are in a good shape", said Klopp.

"For me it was very important for (Ramsey) to take confidence and take that first goal", said Emery.

"Not struggling in the sense of playing badly but I felt as though Liverpool just had the edge on them when I was watching". In fact, I am still not sure they will make it into the top four. "We defended well - the back four was so good - and we had our chance but football is like that". Liverpool and Manchester City hadn't drawn 0-0 since 1986, they said.

"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".

"In that situation, we help strikers when that happens".
