The table topper big match between Manchester City against Liverpool didn’t turn into the usual goal fest as both teams surprisingly drew blanks at Anfield.
Losing their last two meetings in previous season against The Reds, Man City looked to set up a slightly cautious approach as they didn’t try to force things too much.
Liverpool themselves tried to press hard in the early minutes, putting lots of pressure on their opponent’s defense, but once Pep Guardiola’s side settle down, everything become less hectic on the pitch.
Both teams were trying hard to get things going, but pretty much struggling to create many chances as they both defended very well overall even since the first minute.
A goalless first 45 minutes triggered both teams to lift their performance after the break but nothing changed much with neither sides were keen on making fatal mistakes.
However, Man City did got themselves a penalty late in that match, but summer signing, Riyad Mahrez failed to convert, forcing that big match to end in a slightly disappointing goalless draw.
Meanwhile, another title contender this season, Chelsea put themselves back level on points with both City and Liverpool as Maurizio Sarri’s men grabbed a comfortable 3-0 away win over Southampton.
The Blues started their dominance with Eden Hazard’s strike after 30 minutes, which lasted until the half time break.
Sarri’s men kept on pouring forward in the second half and they added two more goals during that period, courtesy of Ross Barkley along with Alvaro Morata, who scored in stoppage time.
