We don't need to be lip readers to know what they were talking about.

Liverpool have been urged to sign a natural playmaker to bolster their ranks after their lack of creative edge was exposed in the tiresome draw with champions Manchester City.

The champions are one point better off and are creating 20% more chances.

As for the impact of Sunday's draw on the title race, the Netherlands captain said: "I think it is not about these games, it is all about the other games, the hard games we have against mid-table and lower teams".

The Reds played out a tense goalless draw with reigning champions City at Anfield on Sunday, which left the two sides level with Chelsea on 20 points at the top of the table.

Blues boss Maurizio Sarri has talked about there being a gap between his team and City and Liverpool, but they can close it if they can keep Hazard fit and in the kind of form he is in at the moment. It showed we can do both - have the ball and be very strong as well. "It was two tactical sides up against each other and it was fine margins either way, which could have won the game".

Liverpool also played with one eye on the clean sheet, for maybe different reasons. "For Jordan Henderson it was exactly two weeks, which is amusing".

The blessed relief of a last-gasp penalty miss saw Liverpool play out a scoreless draw against the visiting Manchester City at Anfield this evening and finish out the last in a punishing run of fixtures that saw them play seven games in 22 days.

Stones said: "I think it was just decided between the boys (who took the penalty), Riyad was taking them well in training all week".

Van Dijk has become a colossus for Liverpool, leading by example from the back, and his presence has transformed the previously erratic Dejan Lovren.

Statisticians analyse a wide range of shots from Premier League history and, based on factors including the distance from goal, the angle of the shot and the type of opportunity it is, they are able to assign an xG value (expressed as a percentage) to every attempt to determine just how good a chance it is. Both back fours bossed their area of the pitch and ensured their teams earned a valuable point, so praise them for it rather than muttering about negativity and "parking the bus".
