Pep Guardiola: Riyad Mahrez had the balls to take the penalty

Pep Guardiola: Riyad Mahrez had the balls to take the penalty

Currently, when the team is not managed by Jose Mourinho.

Things only opened up in the final 20 minutes and City could have snatched it five minutes from time only for Riyad Mahrez to miss a penalty after Virgil van Dijk had brought down substitute Leroy Sane, resulting in the first goalless draw at Anfield between these sides since 1986. But if it is an open game at Anfield, or any open game against Liverpool, you don't even have one percent of a chance. There was none of the champagne football of recent encounters, no stunning passages of play, no moments of magic from Mohamed Salah or David Silva.

With Chelsea making up ground by winning 3-0 at Southampton, the league's three unbeaten teams go into the global break locked together on 20 points. "Don't write Chelsea out but they need a real 'goal-getter".

Liverpool started the game strongly and troubled Manchester City with their pressing but Pep Guardiola's team settled into the game after a few minutes and controlled the game for most of the first half. Both of these two have more players that can threaten.

Jordan Henderson was in action for Liverpool against Manchester City in the Premier League on Sunday.

The right-back Kyle Walker, meanwhile, was far more restrained than usual, slotting in nearly as a third central defender when Benjamin Mendy pushed forward down the left.

"As a back four, that's what we go into every game going for". In no game, we played so far, the game that kind of level like it was today. "We had our chances as well, it was not as if it was their game", said Gomez, who admitted they were fortunate to escape with Mahrez's failure from the spot. We used the ball better.

"We were very strong defensively", he added. Their manager was pleased to be through the other side of it. "Liverpool can be happy with a clean sheet". Unlike last season, Klopp could not call on Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to penetrate City with runs from midfield due to the former Arsenal player's long-term knee injury lay-off. "For Jordan Henderson it was exactly two weeks, which is amusing".
