It was an 8-goal thriller that left both teams with every satisfaction and perhaps little to moan about in the post-match press conference even if Guardiola or Pochettino may have preferred their side taking all 3 points.

Speaking post-match, the former Barcelona manager heaped praises on the Chelsea side for an outstanding performance.

According to the Spaniard, he considers Chelsea’s performance a much better display compared to the defeat against Arsenal where Guardiola’s side fell to a slim 1-0 defeat.

“Liverpool couldn’t win here, and they were much much better than Arsenal,” Guardiola said.

Meanwhile, Chelsea’s commendable performance has propelled them into the top half of the table, currently occupying the 10th position with 16 points. Guardiola, reflecting on the match, stated,

“I don’t remember a game where we came here to get the chances we had. A million times much worse than today, when we won 0-1.”

“Their shape is really good. It happens, give credit to both teams and Pochettino will give analysis about his team. It was tight. A fair result.”

The draw leaves Manchester City at the summit of the league table with 28 points, holding a slim one-point lead over both Liverpool and Arsenal, perhaps a position Guardiola would not want to be going into the international break.

The season however is still fresh and early and as history has proven overtime, the premier league is always full of surprises.
