Intriguing Nabil Fekir claim made after Liverpool draw with Man City

Jurgen Klopp has branded the UEFA Nations League "the most senseless competition in the world" as he prepares to see many of his squad leave on worldwide duty following Liverpool's drab 0-0 draw with Manchester City.

"But we deserve this bit of luck with this performance".

Jordan Henderson was a hero for Liverpool last season but now with the arrival of Naby Keita and Fabinho fans are slowly starting to realize what an average player the Englishman really is. If Liverpool can keep a clean sheet against Huddersfield then they will break that record for the best defensive start to a season in the club's history.

City's best chance arrived when they were awarded a penalty kick, which was blazed over by Riyad Mahrez, five minutes from time after Van Dijk had upended Leroy Sane.

The EPL match between Liverpool and Man City was not played as expected.

Manchester City are sitting at the top of the Premier League table and are yet to lose a game in the league this season.

However, the north London side have won their last six games in the Premier League to move to within two points of Manchester City, Chelsea FC and Liverpool FC.

"I see him every day in the training sessions, I see him every day practice penalties and it gave me a lot of confidence", said Guardiola after he instructed Gabriel Jesus, who earlier replaced regular penalty taker Sergio Aguero, to hand the ball to Mahrez.

While he has been impressed by their, he reckons Sarri's side are too reliant on Eden Hazard, who scored his ninth goal of the campaign in the 3-0 victory over Southampton on Sunday.

The City boss said: "If you play so quick they are much better than us".

Mahrez let slip a good chance on the hour when he shot wide when well placed in the penalty box. Unlike last season, Klopp could not call on Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to penetrate City with runs from midfield due to the former Arsenal player's long-term knee injury lay-off.

Jurgen Klopp slammed the UEFA Nations League as "the most senseless competition in football" following his side's 0-0 draw with Manchester City on Sunday.

But the Egypt global snatched at the chance with the confidence of a player with one goal in his last eight matches.
