  • Van Dijk glad to escape penalty pain

They restricted Liverpool to just one shot on target, by retreating deeper and defending in depth.which restricted the visiting side to just 43 per cent possession, which is the LOWEST City have ever had in the Premier League under Guardiola.

'It's football, it's life, ' said Mahrez, who was making just his third Premier League start since his £60million summer switch to City.

But after losing on his three previous visits to Anfield as City boss, Guardiola took the positives from taking a point from one of the few venues the champions were defeated last season. Mahrez had to put on a fearless face after squandering a glorious opportunity to end that drought by blazing well over the bar.

Jurgen Klopp's men played out a 0-0 draw with Manchester City at Anfield on Sunday, with Riyad Mahrez missing a late penalty for the visitors.

"I sent Mendy to tell him, yes, because "During the training sessions every day I see Mahrez every time take taking the penalties and it gave me a lot of confidence".

Jesus accepted Guardiola's apology but could not hide his frustration with the situation.


"It was a penalty and it shouldn't have happened, but I'm very happy we didn't concede". As Riyad, I've been practising (penalties). Pep spoke with me. In the training session, he shoots flawless penalties.

"We didn't adapt to what Napoli did, and today we were back again so I am fine".

"I made the decision to shoot in the middle - the ball went up", he said.

On this occasion he modified his tactics to nullify Liverpool's threat and Mahrez felt that approach served the team well.

"We were very strong defensively", he added. "We deserved to win, but sometimes it's important not to lose, as well". We played so well so if you want to analyse the result it was okay.
