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.
