After City draw, Liverpool's Klopp slams 'senseless' Nations League

Chelsea are being backed for a win this weekend

Why should our fans have to protect our bus? "I apologise. It was my decision". That is what they should do.

The comments from City and the honesty over their approach underscores Liverpool's elevation under Klopp, who celebrates his third anniversary on Merseyside this Monday. Now they know it.

"I would say we were 90 percent spot on ... but it has come after a tough period", manager Juergen Klopp said.

There is no place in the City squad, though, for Kevin De Bruyne despite his return to training this week.

It was feared the Belgian could be out for three months after suffering a knee injury in August. But Guardiola believes that coping in the face of such adversity is part of the 23-year-old's learning curve. The inclusion of Benjamin Mendy at left back wasn't predicted by many either.

Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp took aim at UEFA's new Nations League competition, labelling it "senseless", after his side headed into the worldwide break with a home draw against Premier League leaders Manchester City on Sunday. Sterling's experience gave him the edge at times, but Gomez stuck to his task; if he made a mistake, he was able to rectify it nearly instantly. Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Georginio Wijnaldum, Emre Can and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain were Liverpool's central midfielders last season and they scored a combined 15 goals of which Can and Chamberlain together scored 11. "Last season we lost here, and this season we drew, maybe next season we will win".

Klopp and his City counterpart Pep Guardiola were satisfied with their team's displays in a tight, tactical encounter which finished 0-0 at Anfield, but the German was clearly frustrated to now lose his players for worldwide duty.

Liverpool, in the end, will probably feel it got away with it, but in the long run the point is probably of more value to City. "They are a top side".

And while Guardiola, diplomatically, name checked the division's other leading sides, he did concede that he expected Jurgen Klopp's team to be prime contenders in this season. "It looks like they are in a good shape", said Klopp. "In that situation they are much better". "We had a clear chance in the last action so we controlled quite well".

It has also been achieved, barring a couple of occasions, without scaling the exhilarating heights that saw teams blown away by a barrage of goals and attacking football on numerous occasions last season.

"We missed a little bit of creativity but it is not easy because they are so strong and good". Now we will play City and (we could) make the boys aware of what was all wrong. They work hard in an out of possession, they cover a lot of ground in every match they play, they press relentlessly, they close down spaces and cover their fullbacks very well.
