Manchester City's tactics showed Pep Guardiola's respect for Liverpool - Virgil van Dijk

English referee Martin Atkinson talks with Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk after awarding Manchester City a penalty during their English Premier League match at Anfield

Chelsea have the same points as Liverpool and Man City and now sit second on the league table - based on their goal difference. Can players like Lacazette and Aubameyang win Arsenal the Premier League, or is their defence still lacking? He has now failed to score from five of his past eight Premier League penalties.

They are also managing around 20 goal attempts per match this season, compared with just under 17 in the same matches last season - despite losing Kevin de Bruyne to a knee injury shortly after their opening match of the campaign.

If only we could press a reset button on the attack and Liverpool would surely be top of the table now rather than sharing first place with Man City and Chelsea.

Milner was forced off 29 minutes into Liverpool's goalless draw with Manchester City on Sunday, clutching his hamstring as he limped off at Anfield.

And Liverpool star Henderson believes the former Arsenal man will be in Jurgen Klopp's XI when fit.

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

I am expecting City and Liverpool to fight it out, with Chelsea the only other team who can challenge for the title - though for that to happen, a lot depends on Eden Hazard.

Guardiola defended Mahrez, who missed a great chance to win the game when he blasted an 86th minute penalty over the bar. Tottenham are sitting fifth, just two points adrift from the top and behind their north London rivals only on goal difference.

When asked about his condition, Klopp said: "Too early".

As I said on Match of the Day on Saturday, what has been happening at United this season has been embarrassing, right through the club. Arsenal are two points behind, yes?

Any prolonged lay-off however would be a major blow for Liverpool as they look to keep up their flying start to the season and repeat their European heroics.

Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley justified Gareth Southgate's decision to call him up to the England squad, scoring his first goal for Chelsea against Southampton on Sunday.

The former England worldwide was once again selected to line-up alongside Jordan Henderson and Goerginio Wijnaldum in the middle of the park for Liverpool's top-of-the-table showdown with Manchester City on Sunday.

Jurgen Klopp insisted before the match he was not concerned by the Egyptian's form. The title race isn't a two horse race. Seems like Liverpool are going with a 4-3-3, whilst Naby Keita makes the bench after recovering from the back spasm he suffered against Napoli midweek.
