Liverpool's Fabinho enjoying learning Jurgen Klopp's style of play

"We want to get as close as possible and do as well as we can but we know it is going to be hard". It was the Algerian international's fourth miss from the spot in his last six.

The well known pundit was joined by former Red Craig Bellamy for a meeting of the minds, and between them they managed to produce almost no new insight into the world of football.

But despite their scintillating form, Neville doubts Arsenal or Chelsea will challenge Manchester City and Liverpool for the title.

All three have yet to lose a match this season but while Liverpool have been touted as the main challengers to City, Chelsea have shown they deserve to be in the conversation.

Both London clubs have enjoyed impressive starts to the 2018-19 campaign, with Chelsea joint-top going into the second worldwide break of the season.

"It was an unbelievably intense period of fixtures, crazy".

He said: "Obviously they were a bit cautious of the way we played and I think we have earned that respect but they still pressed and still tried to play their game. But with this fixture list, I would definitely buy it".

The Reds trio strikers of Mo Salah, Firmino and Mane were not spectacular and it was nearly a complete replication of their performance against Napoli in the UCL.

"We had a clear chance in the last action, so we controlled quite well".

City's first penalty claim was waved away when Dejan Lovren appeared to trip Aguero inside the area, but the visitors quickly neutralised Liverpool's threat by keeping possession for long periods.

"You look at Liverpool and you think if the front three don't play or two of the three don't play, they're gonna struggle".

A rare incisive Liverpool counter-attack found Salah again in a good position 21 minutes from time, but he blazed high over the bar. In the end, however, the teams finished just as they started, playing to a 0-0 draw to split the points.

Behind them, Virgil van Dijk was majestic until the moment he conceded an 85th-minute penalty - missed by Riyad Mahrez - following a foul on Leroy Sane.

Jesus stepped up to assume penalty taking duties, only to be moved aside by another winger, Riyad Mahrez, after Benjamin Mendy had run onto the pitch with instructions from the bench.
