Pep Guardiola is the world’s best manager, says Jurgen Klopp

Pep Guardiola is the world’s best manager, says Jurgen Klopp

"It was seven massive games and I'm really happy with what the boys made out of it, now we have to hope they come back [from the upcoming worldwide break] healthy and then we go to Huddersfield". Both back fours bossed their area of the pitch and ensured their teams earned a valuable point, so praise them for it rather than muttering about negativity and "parking the bus".

Any prolonged lay-off however would be a major blow for Liverpool as they look to keep up their flying start to the season and repeat their European heroics.

In nine combined Premier League appearances, Milner has scored one and provided two assists, as well as making 10 interceptions and 51 recoveries to date.

Holding Man City to a clean sheet meant that the Reds have only conceded three goals in their first eight matches.

I am expecting City and Liverpool to fight it out, with Chelsea the only other team who can challenge for the title - though for that to happen, a lot depends on Eden Hazard. They also dropped deeper as a back four to deny Liverpool's front three the space to get in behind them and it worked a treat.

Get the latest World Cup news updates. Regardless of the result, I'm expecting goals plenty of talking points and some red-hot chat on the live blog! It's certainly the biggest Premier League game of the season to date, and it's going to be interesting to see how Jurgen Klopp out thinks Pep Guardiola tactically.

But they have survived their first big test this season, coming through a gruelling run of seven games in 22 days against some of the toughest teams in Europe, including Paris St-Germain.

Both managers approached the game as if it was an important one in the title race.

Klopp said: "How much [serious]? I think we deserved to win, but sometimes it is better to not lose as well".

"The boys unfortunately go away again now and have to play Nations League games, the most senseless competition in the world of football".

Now, Mahrez hadn't exactly had the best display of his career but he clearly felt like this was his time to step up and grab the victor.

Yes it made for a drab game this time, but their real battle is only just beginning.
