Liverpool's Fabinho enjoying learning Jurgen Klopp's style of play

City, Liverpool and Chelsea are now joint-top on the log this term with goals difference separating the three clubs.

On missing out on the summer's successful World Cup campaign in Russia, Barkley added: "It was frustrating for me because England means the world to me, to play for your country, but these things happen in football and you have to react and work hard to get your rewards, which I am doing".

Georginio Wijnaldum believes that Liverpool need to embrace the intensity of the Premier League if they are to succeed domestically this season.

The midfielder's claims for an England recall were pushed by the Italian manager, who said after Sunday's game he expected the Liverpool-born player to become "very important for the England national team". "For Jordan Henderson it was exactly two weeks, which is amusing".

'Many people thought they were going to miss him a lot and obviously that quality of player is going to be a bit of a miss.

The 24-year-old, who is now on global duty with Brazil ahead of their friendlies against Saudi Arabia and Argentina, is yet to start a single game for Liverpool in the Premier League so far this season. "He's a coach who demands a lot from his players, not only in matches, but on a daily basis in training".

However, Mahrez's miserable record from the spot continued as City's club record 60 million pound (US$79 million) signing missed for the fourth time in his last six penalties by blasting well over the bar.

However, Guardiola admitted his plan for a slower tempo to stop Liverpool springing onto the counter-attack had worked. Running in these transitions there is no one better.

"They are built for that, Jurgen (Klopp) is built for that".

"In that situation they are much better than us".

"I don't think they will win it by 19 points again like last season but I'd expect Man City to win it by a handful of points".

"We were close more than ever to win here".

Before the start of the new Premier League season, everyone had their money on Manchester City to defend their league title. "I'm so comfortable (with) the performance we have done".

After starting the season with seven straight victories, Liverpool have now failed to win any of their past four matches.
