Asked if Sunday's stalemate shows they are closer to catching City, he said: "I think it is not about these games, it is all about the other games, the hard games which we have against mid-table and lower teams".

"Eighty-five minutes, you obviously get a bit worn out, and that moment goes by in a split second and I chose to dive in, which is not what I would normally do". "But they still pressed and still tried to play their game".

"Obviously they were a bit cautious of the way we played and I think we have earned that respect", Van Dijk told reporters.

While City were far from their best, Pep Guardiola's men also kept their unbeaten record intact.

"I knew it before", said Klopp when quizzed if Liverpool have to beat more than City to land a first title in 29 years.

That's not how they usually do things, at all, but such are the fine margins this season, it proves how much respect they have for one another.


"[After] 85 minutes, you obviously get a bit tired, and that moment goes by in a split second and I chose to dive in, which is not what I would normally do".

"It was really intense". Don't lose the ball in the wrong moment, otherwise you have big problems. "The teams did well and we were a bit lucky with the penalty, of course, that is clear".

The commonly held view since the start of the season has been that the battle for the Premier League crown will be a two horse race between Man City and Liverpool. But I said already in an interview, we have to start thinking about the players.

"If it is an open game at Anfield you don't even have a one-percent chance", said Guardiola. I liked it, but if you want to win against City, you have to use a few of these half-chances.

Liverpool could have lost the one point they gained if Mahrez didn't miss the penalty.

"After the worldwide break there are three important games against Huddersfield, Red Star and Cardiff so we want to be ready for that". For us it was a positive result and we'll take it. We were close, more than ever to winning here but it is better than last season and we compete really really good.
