- The Citizens remain atop of the table while Liverpool are third on the log but with 20 points

Liverpool and Manchester City canceled each other out in their Premier League encounter at Anfield Stadium on Sunday.

Both sides continued their unbeaten run in the EPL so far this season as the Citizens maintain the top spot while the Reds are third on the table behind Chelsea - but all on the same point.

The match failed to live to its bidding as many had thought goals would rain in the game owing to the quality of attacks paraded by both sides.

City had a chance to hand Pep Guardiola's men maximum victory towards the end of the game after Virgil Van Dijk fouled Leroy Sane.

But the Algeria international failed to hit the target as the ball went out of the pitch and the score line remained the same.

The two teams got started on a cautious note as there was no shot on target until the 62nd minute of the encounter.

Man City will hope to return to winning ways when they host Burnley on Saturday, October 20, while Liverpool battle Huddersfield at the John Smith's Stadium on the same day.

NAIJ.com previously reported that Lorenzo Insigne's 90th minute strike was all that Napoli needed to claim their first victory in the 2018-19 Champions League season at the Stadio San Paolo.

The Italian League giants got their campaign off to a shaky start after being held to a goalless by FK Crvena Zvezda late last month. As a result of their recent victory, coach Serse Cosmi's men are seating atop of Group C table with four points from two games - one above Paris Saint Germain and The Reds who are second and third on the log.
