Spurs face a tough test against Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund, Liverpool face the deep Champions League experience of Bayern Munich while City have the easier, on paper, task against Schalke 04 now 13th in their domestic league.
Manchester City's Leroy Sane scores their second goal against Liverpool, January 3, 2019.
With the table-topping Reds hoping to win the English title for the first time since 1990, letting second-placed City move back within four points of them was a significant blow. They are still leaders and they have a lot of games to play as well.
I'm still not not sure how it happened, but Stones then managed to react quickly and clear the ball off the line, nutmegging Salah in the process.
"I am so glad because the team started so well", he said.
'We're just four points behind them and they know it'.
With no more league meetings between the sides to come, Liverpool's destiny is still in their own hands, but they will now have the pressure of having a City side that romped to the title with a record 100 points last season on their tails. "It was that or let him go through on goal, and in my mind there was only one outcome".
Liverpool have offloaded two players in Dominic Solanke and Nathaniel Clyne (on loan), while Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are now sidelined with injuries.
"We need Sergio in this kind of game". City had a few more moments when they controlled the game, but we had these moments as well - not as long or maybe as often as City, but it's an away game and that's absolutely OK.
"Why should we behave like somebody who won it all the time?"
"We have never won it as a team". In the end, you can say post [and] in or post [and] out can make a massive difference - today we witnessed that.
"I would have paid money for it you can not believe", Klopp said.
"We are disappointed we lost but there is no reason for panic".
