MAHREZ BOTTLED IT! Liverpool 0-0 Man City | Match Reaction & Player Ratings

08 October 2018

They were the top two teams in the Premier League heading into this clash and the feeling of respect was palpable during the entire 90 minutes on Sunday at Anfield.

Pep Guardiola has apologised to Gabriel Jesus after refusing the Manchester City striker's request to take the late penalty at Liverpool that Riyad Mahrez blazed over the bar. They had one shot on target.

WORST PLAYER - It's harsh because Van Dijk hadn't done too much wrong in the match up until the penalty, but it was a awful decision to bring down Leroy Sane, one that could have cost his side the game.

However, the game could have been lost right at the end were it not for a awful 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. "He [Jesus] wanted [to take it]". "We like to wait, to build up the spaces".

"A clean sheet at Anfield is not something you can do very often".

Even if Liverpool will spend on a midfielder in January, the Reds still have to ensure that they remain in the title race and for that, Klopp has to quickly find the right midfield balance with the players at his disposal. "They play for that", Guardiola said.

So far this season they have played 24 games in all competitions and scored nine. In the end, however, the teams finished just as they started, playing to a 0-0 draw to split the points. Against City, he showed what an asset he has become for Klopp's team. You can not defend over 95 minutes, 100 percent but I thought how we defended was brilliant. It was great game to play, unlucky that we didn't score, unlucky that we didn't concede as well'.

Gomez was given the task of marking former Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling in this game and it was a well-fought battle, with both players having their moments.

"It's better than last season when we lost here".

"We can not forget against which team we compete and we made that performance".

Understandably, the emphasis has been on Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino but the real problem lies elsewhere.

"We have to recognise against which team we put in this performance", he said, adding "at Anfield, stopping probably the three best attackers in the world".

"Straight after that he gave the ball away and didn't look as though he could kick it properly". Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Georginio Wijnaldum, Emre Can and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain were Liverpool's central midfielders last season and they scored a combined 15 goals of which Can and Chamberlain together scored 11.

For a side aiming to win the Premier League, goals from midfield is a necessity.

"I'm just playing good football because we are playing good football", he said.

"We had on Wednesday a little setback for sure". I watched the game on the flight back. "If we had defended like we did against Napoli today, it's a 7-0". No doubt about that. "I apologise. It was my decision". It was unbelievable, playing these teams, it is really hard. I think he touched the ball a bit but not enough.

"The referee decided it was a foul by Fernandinho". Maybe we learn for the future. We know how complicated it is playing in this stadium and how unsafe they are. They are incredibly quick and we controlled them outstandingly, but we didn't create too much. It is a point.

Klopp said: 'Now the players go off and play the Nations League which is the most senseless competition in the world.
