Van Dijk glad to escape penalty pain

Van Dijk glad to escape penalty pain

Asked if Sunday's stalemate shows they are closer to catching City, he said: "I think it is not about these games, it is all about the other games, the hard games which we have against mid-table and lower teams". I have learned a few things from him but it is just the start. Eighty-five minutes, you obviously get a bit worn out and that moment goes by in a split second and I made a decision to dive in, which is not what I would normally do.

Arsenal, who lost their first two games of the season are right back in the title hunt after a 5-1 stroll against Fulham, while Chelsea saw off Southampton 3-0 to maintain their unbeaten start to the season.

Sunday's goalless stalemate with Premier League champions Manchester City concluded a testing fixture schedule between the September and October worldwide breaks. "Maybe next season we will win". But if it is an open game at Anfield, or any open game against Liverpool, you don't even have one percent of a chance. They are maybe, no, they are the best team in the world in these transitions, offensive, defensive, there is no team better in the world than that.

Nevertheless, the second half started with more objective by both the teams and they got many chances to win the game.

However, there's no doubt that that the performance levels have been lower than what we've come to expect from this Liverpool side. Nor is it indicative of Jurgen Klopp having cheerleaders where Mourinho has critics.

In nine combined Premier League appearances, Milner has scored one and provided two assists, as well as making 10 interceptions and 51 recoveries to date.

"It was really intense".

But when I watch the Gunners, I don't see a team that can challenge for the title.

While Van Dijk said it showed how much of a threat the Reds posed to the defending champions, he felt greater consistency over the course of the season would be the key to a title challenge.

Everyone misses penalties, even big, big players. We tried to win but at the end we need to be happy - I need to be happy - that we didn't lose it because of the penalty.

It'll be followed by the visit of Red Star Belgrade, themselves dismantled in Paris last week, in European action and then the arrival of Cardiff City at Anfield in league action to round off the month.
