Points made, though nei­ther Gun­ners nor Pool happy to share

Irish Examiner - Sport - - SOCCER -

Liver­pool are not go­ing to catch Manch­ester City and end their ti­tlewin­ning drought this sea­son. That was one of the pos­si­ble con­clu­sions to draw from this re­sult as Jur­gen Klopp’s side failed to win a fix­ture won so eas­ily by Pep Guardi­ola’s de­fend­ing cham­pi­ons in the open­ing match of the sea­son. City have set the bench­mark so high that win­ning away at top six ri­vals is the stan­dard Premier League win­ners must aspire to. Klopp said a draw rep­re­sented a de­cent re­turn for his side, and it prob­a­bly did, but do they need to be win­ning at teams such as Arse­nal to really chal­lenge City at the top and win the League for the first time in nearly 30 years?
