Chelsea joined Manchester City and Liverpool at the Premier League summit

Chelsea joined Manchester City and Liverpool at the Premier League summit

Liverpool midfielder James Milner faces an anxious wait to find out the seriousness of an injury he picked up during his side's Premier League encounter with champions Manchester City at Anfield.

"That's why I say going away is not a big problem but now you call a manager of any country and ask him to leave out one or two players and he says, "I am under pressure as well" because now it's Nations League".

Graeme Souness also expressed his views on Liverpool's recent transfers while stating "In the summer Liverpool signed Fabinho, signed Keita and also tried to sign [Nabil] Fekir from Lyon", and added, "I think that tells you how Jurgen sees their midfield".

The Liverpool defender admitted it was "not smart" to dive in on Leroy Sané during the stalemate on Sunday and he was hugely relieved when Riyad Mahrez blazed the 86th-minute penalty over the bar.

Klopp's side will take on Huddersfield Town in their next Premier League fixture. Every team in the Premier League wants that, but it's only for a few of them. The last time Liverpool managed that was in the 1978-79 season when Bob Paisley led Graeme Souness and Kenny Dalglish to a storming first division win. "That is what Jurgen feels and the players build, and in that situation they are much better". And in no game we played so far, the game was level like it was today.

And "Inside Anfield" has shown a similar embrace just seconds before Liverpool and Man City took to the pitch last weekend. "But now it is over so I can", said Klopp. We deserved to win, but sometimes it's important not to lose, as well'.

They were the top two teams in the Premier League heading into this clash and the feeling of respect was palpable during the entire 90 minutes on Sunday at Anfield.

Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang both scored twice, with Aaron Ramsey grabbing the other. "It was a decision I made and hopefully it will be the last time I make that decision at that time". "Only when the team play better and play good the striker has more chances to score goals".

"I think to keep a clean sheet after a penalty in the last five minutes makes me a very happy man".

A more reasonably hard and reasonably spaced-out set of games can see the reds return to playing with the zip of a month ago and keep their title challenge on track.
