Liverpool set to break 40-year-old record after Man City result

But when a team plays against Liverpool, especially away from home, they simply can not go into the game without some kind of plan to stop the likes of Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane from wreaking havoc.

Guardiola defended Mahrez, who missed a great chance to win the game when he blasted an 86th minute penalty over the bar.

If Liverpool and City draw it could benefit Chelsea if they manage to defeat Southampton in Sunday's earlier game held on the south coast. "Against a very good team we managed to do that".

"We stood strong and showed great mental strength", said Stones after the game.

With regular penalty taker Sergio Aguero replaced by Gabriel Jesus, the former Leicester City winger stepped up on 86 minutes after Virgil van Dijk had felled Leroy Sane in a taut Premier League clash.

Liverpool got the better of Man City over two legs last season in the Champions League and beat the Citizens at Anfield in the league.

"If you want to see fresher (players), give them a summer break", he said.

Manchester City may be even better now than the team who earned a Premier League record 100 points, according to football statisticians at Gracenote. "I think we deserved to win, but sometimes it is better to not lose as well".

"Fine me a player who can do that but also puts a shift in when you don't have the ball", he added.

Going by how the two sides have been at top form, many would have thought the game would be filled with goals from different angles.

A goalless draw at Anfield on Sunday meant the pair, along with Chelsea, are level on 20 points at the top of the table with Pep Guardiola's side edging ahead courtesy of superior goal difference. The Brazilian had been keen but Guardiola sent a message on to the field via Benjamin Mendy telling him to defer to Mahrez. "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 also have my concerns about Sarri's side defensively, namely with David Luiz playing in a four-man defence.

It'll be followed by the visit of Red Star Belgrade, themselves dismantled in Paris last week, in European action and then the arrival of Cardiff City at Anfield in league action to round off the month.
