Klopp slams 'senseless' Nations League after City draw

The Liverpool vs Manchester City Premier League match will be played at Anfield in Liverpool.

The Nations League competition was introduced this year by European football's governing body UEFA largely to replace friendly matches with competitive games in a minigroup format.

Guardiola acknowledged that his side had chosen to lower the tempo in the game to limit the potency of Liverpool's attack. The display was Rangers' most impressive in a domestic game under Gerrard and he heaped praise on his players for delivering only three days after beating Rapid Vienna by the same score. "They best go to the bank and get an very bad lot of money out - or he's not going". It's how it is in my job; if I win games, I know everything about football, if I lose three in a row, people think I have no clue about football.

He said: "The big difference is how many times you lose the ball".

"We don't show the Premier League level, and this is our situation", Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic told reporters.

"The challenge for me and the team now is how can we produce these home performances away from home and that's when we will find consistency". Expect Jordan Henderson to play the deep midfield role with James Milner and Gini Wijnaldum just ahead, with Klopp asking them to press intensely from the outset. "I don't know what's going to happen".

"If you go back to when I started playing and you had Dundee United under Jim McLean and Aberdeen under Sir Alex (Ferguson), I think one season Dundee United went with 14 players throughout the whole season and were involved in cup ties, league games, European games".

"But the crowd was in a lot of moments really unhappy with the Napoli performance".

With Pep Guardiola selecting David Silva and Bernardo Silva in a central midfield three, Fernandinho needed to be at his best to keep out Liverpool's star-studded front line.

"Today doesn't heal Livingston, but it was certainly a statement and has blown the title race wide open and made it a little bit better looking for us".

"You have to be ready, you need a fantastic football team - which thank God I have - with outstanding character, ready to be really courageous, ready to make mistakes". Maurizio Sarri's side have perhaps been underestimated, but they - like both City and Liverpool - have 20 points on the board after eight games.

"I asked them at the beginning of the season, during pre-season, if we can make Ibrox a fortress?" The Guinean midfielder stayed overnight in a Naples hospital after suffering a back spasm.
