Perhaps that is something of a disappointment for Jurgen Klopp and the Liverpool fans; they swept City aside three times last season, and this term, they need a statement win to announce themselves as title challengers.
But talking after the Liverpool vs Man City game, Jurgen Klopp made it clear that apart from Liverpool and Guardiola's side there are two more teams who will give a tough fight 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.
"We played Chelsea last week, who were excellent".
"We want to get as close as possible and do as well as we can but we know it is going to be hard".
Despite their superb start to the season, Maurizio Sarri has claimed City and Liverpool remain a step above his team. But we have to make sure we manage it until the end of the season to keep it like this. "The boys unfortunately go away again now and have to play Nations Cup games - the most senseless competition in the world of football".
It took until the 62nd minute for both teams to register a shot on target as they cancelled each other out, before City were given a golden opportunity when Virgil van Dijk was adjudged to have upended Leroy Sane in the penalty area.
"It was a decision I made and hopefully it will be the last time I make that decision at that time".
"At 85 minutes you get a bit tired, and that moment goes by in a split second and I chose to dive in, which is not what I would normally do".
"We made it hard for them and they made it hard for us at times but that's how it is". Having won six games in a row, did they?
