Liverpool's defensive performance against Manchester City - 6:25

Jeremy Doku caused problems for Alexander-Arnold, but the Scouse defender did as much as he could by refusing to engage and sell himself Did Liverpool allow City to build using the flanks.

Doku is dangerous, but he is also somewhat predictable Doku completed 11 dribbles, which is the most Liverpool have ever suffered in a single Premier League game since records started being recorded in 2006 Liverpool's only goal conceded was self inflicted after Alisson Becker gave the ball to Nathan Ake Context required around the game: recent international break, Jurgen Klopp benefited from just one session with his players, City went into the match having won their last 23 home matches in a row Liverpool's defensive performance was good but not great.

Liverpool posted 0.6 expected goals City posted double the number of shots on 16 compared to Liverpool's eight, but the average shot Guardiola's men created tends to get converted just eight per cent of the time compared to their usual average of 11 per cent Liverpool's best defensive performances against City under Klopp have involved the Reds keeping their opponents down to around 0.6 to 1.2 expected goals 36 touches in the penalty box for City which isn't that great for Liverpool.

Nottingham Forest, Arsenal, Fulham, Brighton and Hove Albion, Newcastle United and Burnley all better against City in that department this season Overall, the defensive performance was decent, better than last season, but the Reds could have been even more watertight?
