Klopp, though, thinks that tie showed Liverpool that they can not ever relax against Guardiola's men. It's not that you go out of a game like this thinking now we have the solution to deal with Manchester City. I'll therefore go for Over 3.5 Goals at [2.6].

Saga Vanecek was on holiday with her family when she found the 85cm-long sword by the edge of the water on the Vidöstern lake. Experts at the local museum, where the sword is now displayed, believe that it is around 1,500-years-old.

Manchester City manager Josep Guardiola (R) and Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp during their sides' 0-0 draw at Anfield. Against City, if you don't defend half spaces they are constantly between your midfield and your last line, you have to constantly jump from your last line, which you don't want to do that often.
