Guardiola confirms he wanted Mahrez to take penalty

Kyle Walker says whoever wins Liverpool v Man City will be favourites for the title

Riyad Mahrez had a glorious opportunity to give Manchester City a late lead against Liverpool from the spot, but he blazed his 86th-minute penalty over the bar.

Stones said City were delighted to keep a clean sheet after conceding seven goals in their past two visits - one game in the Premier League and one in the Champions League - but Mahrez's miss took the gloss off their performance.

"Now the players go off and play the Nations League which is the most senseless competition in the world of football", said Klopp, who urged the soccer authorities to look at the issue of players being overused.

However, the game could have been lost right at the end were it not for a bad penalty kick miss from new Manchester City signing Riyad Mahrez, who skied his spot-kick after Leroy Sane was felled in the area by Leroy Sane. We controlled much better than in the past, and with the second balls, on which they are masters.

"We know Aguero is the penalty taker, but that is how far the analysis has gone now".

It would be surprising to see Kershaw lose this one, but it's baseball, and we all have learned to expect the unexpected. The national anthem will be sung by Mia Sinclair Jenness, a voice on the Disney Junior animated series "Fancy Nancy".

Manchester City forward Riyad Mahrez insists he will not let his shocking penalty miss against Liverpool affect his confidence.

When he is on form and linking up the play, as he was doing for much of today's game, he makes City look nearly unplayable in the middle of the park, regardless of how tightly you press them.

But Mahrez, who had fought off Gabriel Jesus to take the spot-kick, ballooned his effort over the bar.

City's tactics were so successful that Liverpool failed to register a single shot on target for the first in the first half of a Premier League game for the first time since November 2017 against Chelsea. We were close, more than ever to winning here, but it is better than last season. Don't lose the ball in unsafe positions because when you lose the ball there, they counter attack with Firmino, Mane and Salah. "I want to keep doing it and keep everyone happy". "We never got any momentum".

Klopp added that despite the admiration he has for Guardiola, defeating one of his teams is a moment to savour. I would not like to speak about the referees, about the decisions. We deserved to win, but sometimes it's important not to lose, as well'. We played very strong and hard today and missed some chances.
