Mahrez misses late penalty as Man City draw at Liverpool

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

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 think they did well, we did well, up until the penalty moment.

"We were lucky in that situation but we deserved it, a bit of luck, because with the performance the boys showed today, it's just good", he said.

"We feel we can compete with any team but people seem to be just dismissing other teams and making it a two-horse race, which is not the case", the Scotland global told Sky Sports.

"It's football", Guardiola said. That's why I say, going away is not a big problem, but now you call a manager of any country and ask him to leave out one or two players and he says: 'I am under pressure as well, ' because now it's Nations Cup. It was great game to play, unlucky that we didn't score, unlucky that we didn't concede as well'. I was confident, so I was not happy that they did not allow me. How he's played today, he gave everything and that's important.

'Last season we lost here, and this season we drew, maybe next season we will win'.

City were also a lot more pragmatic than usual and did not commit as many men forward as normal - for example their full-backs Benjamin Mendy and Kyle Walker, who were both aware of the threat Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah posed on the counter.

Manchester City star midifelder Iklay Gundogan has sent out a warning ahead of the Citizens encounter with Liverpool this weekend.

"Not struggling in the sense of playing badly but I felt as though Liverpool just had the edge on them when I was watching". To come to Anfield and get a clean sheet is something us as defenders are really proud of and as a team I thought everyone put the shift in and did their jobs for the team.

"We had on Wednesday a little setback for sure".

"To respond is really important, but to respond is really hard when the next opponent is Manchester City because there is no time for any wrong thoughts or whatever. I am happy with the results we got".

The City manager apologised to the Brazil global after refusing his request to take the 86th minute spot-kick that could have delivered a significant victory at Anfield on Sunday.

Saints exposed them at the back but missed two sitters, firstly through Danny Ings to go 1-0 up and then when Ryan Bertrand could have equalised.

"We were very strong defensively", he added.
