Liverpool fans react to Jordan Henderson display against Manchester City

Heading into the worldwide break, City, Liverpool and Chelsea are all on 20 points, with Arsenal and Tottenham two adrift.

City, the reigning Premier League champions, were given a gilt-edged chance to leave Anfield with a win for the first time since 2003 when Van Dijk brought down Leroy Sane inside the box five minutes from time. However, Riyad Mahrez was off target from the spot-kick.

Stones said City were delighted to keep a clean sheet after conceding seven goals in their past two visits - one game in the Premier League and one in the Champions League - but Mahrez's miss took the gloss off their performance. It's still early in the season, but City will likely feel this was dropped points against a key Premier League rival.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp took aim at UEFA's new Nations League competition, labelling it "senseless", after his side headed into the global break with a home draw against Premier League leaders Manchester City on Sunday. Regular penalty taker Sergio Aguero was off the pitch at the time.

Until roughly this time a year ago the criticism of him was always that his finishing didn't match up to his excellence in other areas, and he seems to have reverted to that impression of him: 29 shots on the league this season have yielded only three goals. They have been on a great run. It could've been a goal and the game could've been over.

"We didn't adapt to what Napoli did, and today we were back again so I am fine". We played so well so if you want to analyse the result it was okay.

"We played City now very often and they are just outstanding".

"So there is a long way to go and there will be a lot of teams competing but we hope we are one of them".

"I don't think Arsenal [will compete]", Neville told his Sky Sports podcast as he analysed the weekend's action.

Southampton manager Mark Hughes said he believed they paid Chelsea "too much respect" and pointed to a first-half miss by Danny Ings, who blasted over from a couple of meters, as a game-changer.

"But with that fixture list I'd have said "I'll buy it, let's start on the ninth matchday".
