All EPL needs are the players

"I think I made them feel important and trusted", said United boss Jose Mourinho. Going forward though, Milner looked a lot more composed and took a brilliant spot-kick against his former side to open the scoring.

With both teams in love with going forward and scoring goals and generally not anxious about the defending part of the game, plenty of goals were expected, and while the chances to out the ball into the back of the net came, came and came some more, the players had an off day as far as finding the target was concerned.

"We have clear chances in front of the goalkeeper and we don't score goals".

"The same that he said in the press conference he said to us, he was really proud", Caballero told reporters.

Aguero slipped when through on goal as City pushed for a second goal, with De Bruyne seeing a follow-up hit the outside of the far post.

Both teams had chances to win in the later stages.

"I am delighted to have him".

"You can not imagine. This is one of the happiest days of my career as a manager", he told Sky Sports. "It is not the easiest of days coming here, so we can't be too disappointed with a point".

Klopp added: "I like to speak positively about a player, second half Emre was very good but first half it was a challenge he should have had before their goal but things like that happen in football, it does not make you a bad person".

"After the game, Adam said immediately to me "sorry", and I thought, 'Why?' Now I know why he thought he had to say sorry but he doesn't have to because his performance was outstanding".

"Both teams went for it and it was a good game for the neutral".

Philippe Coutinho bent a shot just over, Matip headed wide at a free-kick and Caballero showed agility to claw away a Roberto Firmino curler and touch over a thumping Adam Lallana volley.

City stay third but fall two points behind Tottenham Hotspur, while Liverpool stay fourth, ahead of Manchester United - who have two games in hand - by four points.

However, they can't count on facing Top 7 sides who are willing to come out and play after the Merseyside derby return against Everton at Anfield following the global break.

Aguero sidefooted wide late on and then ballooned the final chance of the game high over the crossbar in stoppage time.

Klopp also confirmed that midfielder Jordan Henderson will miss Liverpool's trip to Manchester City on Sunday (Mar 19) and will be unavailable for England's forthcoming World Cup qualifier against Lithuania following a foot injury.
