Liverpool Manager, Jurgen Klopp has tipped Arsenal to challenge his team and Manchester City for this season's Premier League title.

Chelsea have the same points as Liverpool and Man City and now sit second on the league table - based on their goal difference.

Liverpool's Van Dijk gave away a late penalty against Manchester City that was missed by Riyad Mahrez.

"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", he said, as quoted by The Mirror. But we have to make sure we manage it until the end of the season to keep it like this. I don't know. I [asked] him: "'Big one?' and he said: "'I don't think so, but big enough that I go off'". "(A draw) is better than last season when we lose", added Guardiola as City's wait for a first win at Anfield since 2003 continued.

It took until the 62nd minute for both teams to register a shot on target as they cancelled each other out, before City were given a golden opportunity when Virgil van Dijk was adjudged to have upended Leroy Sane in the penalty area.

Liverpool 32-year-old midfielder, James Milner suffered a hamstring injury during the EPL game against Man City = on Sunday.

The Saudis wanted to lure Khashoggi back to Saudi Arabia and lay hands on him there, this person said. However, a police search revealed that they did not take the luggage on their return.

"It was not smart from me personally and hopefully it will never happen again".

"Eighty-five minutes, you obviously get a bit worn out, and that moment goes by in a split second and I made a decision to dive in, which is not what I would normally do".

"We made it hard for them and they made it hard for us at times but that's how it is".

Much like with Alisson's mistake earlier in the season, everyone will simply be happy that the error did not cost them the game.

"After the global break there are three important games against Huddersfield, Red Star and Cardiff so we want to be ready for that".
