The Blues became the first team in the Premier League to prevent Liverpool scoring this season and the result was enough to move City back to the summit above Chelsea, who had gone top earlier on Sunday, on goal difference.

City substitute Leroy Sane was brought down in the area by the lunging Virgil van Dijk but with regular penalty taker Sergio Aguero having been substituted, Algerian Mahrez took the responsibility and blasted the spot kick high over the bar at Anfield.

"It will be between one of Liverpool and City". He said "Liverpool are a strong team but so are Chelsea, and Arsenal, Manchester United".

In the 75 minute Mahrez tried his luck from 18-yards out, but this time the Reds keeper was at his best with an acrobatic fingertip save to turn his shot around the post.

A spokesman for the Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah, who is based in the Israeli-occupied West Bank, voiced disapproval of the fuel delivery.

With a place at the top of the Premier League before the worldwide break at stake, the pressure was on Liverpool to make a statement win, however in truth they were fortunate to draw. We have to start thinking about the players. We controlled much better than in the past, and with the second balls, on which they are masters. Where City have faced a fixture against a team just promoted from the Championship (Wolves, Fulham and Cardiff), last season's data has been taken from the fixture against the team relegated to make way for them (Swansea, West Brom and Stoke). While City succeeded, Van Dijk believes the champions' tactics demonstrated their concern for the threat posed by Liverpool.

"The start to the game was fantastic and I liked it but if you want to win against City you have to use a few of these half-chances or whatever it is in these moments", he added.

Kop boss Jurgen Klopp was content with the point but he admitted his side got "lucky" in the end with Mahrez's missed penalty.

"We hope that they come back healthy and play these easy competitions - the Premier League, the Champions League and all this". "You could see Napoli used the atmosphere and we couldn't calm it down with our performance", said Klopp after defeat in Italy on Wednesday.

"I look at Liverpool's midfield and I bet they are three great lads, who work their socks off but they just haven't got that little bit of quality in games like this to look one way and deliver a pass the other way".
