Liverpool's defence, built around £67m goalkeeper Alisson and £75m central defender Virgil van Dijk, has had much of its vulnerability removed - but the attacking trident that terrorised teams last season is not now firing on all cylinders.
However, City soon began to take control of proceedings and had a strong shout for a penalty, when Dejan Lovren and Sergio Aguero tangled in the penalty area.
