  • Liverpool vs. Manchester City final score, recap: Mahrez misses penalty kick in a scoreless draw

But we have to make sure we manage it until the end of the season to keep it like this. Manchester City got the biggest chance to seal the game when Lorey Sane was knocked down by Virgil van Dijk in his own penalty area and the Cityzens' were handed a spot kick. Their century haul of points last season has ensured expectations remain incredibly high this term but simply retaining the title for the first time - something no club has managed for a decade - would be achievement enough.

What Jurgen Klopp said is true.

"You look at Liverpool and you think if the front three don't play or two of the three don't play, they're gonna struggle".

"I see him every day in the training sessions, I see him every day practice penalties and it gave me a lot of confidence", said Guardiola after he instructed Gabriel Jesus, who earlier replaced regular penalty taker Sergio Aguero, to hand the ball to Mahrez.

"[Chelsea] have started the season well". Eighty-five minutes, you obviously get a bit worn out and that moment goes by in a split second and I chose to dive in, which is not what I would normally do.

Liverpool are nine points better off than at the same stage last season, and Van Dijk remains satisfied, if not complacent.


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.

"I was just hoping Alisson got a hand to it or he missed and that was the case". You need to finish. Where City have faced a fixture against a team just promoted from the Championship (Wolves, Fulham and Cardiff), last season's data has been taken from the fixture against the team relegated to make way for them (Swansea, West Brom and Stoke). And in no game we played so far, the game was level like it was today.

After starting the season with seven straight victories, Liverpool have now failed to win any of their past four matches.

"That is a really good group, a really strong football team".

Guardiola defended Mahrez, who missed a great chance to win the game when he blasted an 86th minute penalty over the bar.
