Liverpool 0-0 Manchester City: Highlights & Match Report

Liverpool 0-0 Manchester City: Highlights & Match Report

Jamie Carragher analysed Riyad Mahrez's penalty miss at Anfield on Sunday and highlighted the excellent research that goalkeeping coach John Achterberg put into predicting the way the Algerian would take his pen.

And City could have secured victory after being awarded an 86 minute penalty when substitute Leroy Sane was brought down in the box.

Guardiola did not blame Mahrez for missing the penalty - which was blazed high above the bar - but did apologise to Gabriel Jesus for not allowing him to take it.

"For me it was very important for (Ramsey) to take confidence and take that first goal", said Emery. We have played City often and they are outstanding. We defended really well.

Liverpool, now without a win in four games, struggled to test the City goal, leaving goalkeeper Ederson largely untroubled.

It meant Anfield did not play host to the full-throttle attacking spectacular so many expected - but maybe it was just neither the time nor the place. Up and down they (Liverpool) are the best team in the world in these transitions, offensive, defensive, it is built for that. The Belgian said he did not know if he had ever played better than this season.

South Korean ex-leader Lee gets 15-year term for corruption
Former President Lee Myung-bak walks towards the Seoul Central District Court to attend his corruption trial on September 6, 2018. The court sided with prosecutors, saying Lee is the real owner of DAS and used it to create a slush fund.

"I'd just started celebrating that we'd got it, a great opportunity to win a game", Stones told Sky Sports.

Asked if people saying Liverpool had worked out how to beat City were correct, Guardiola said: "Good - congratulations".

That resulted in these free-flowing juggernauts only producing two shots on target each in a goalless draw as they highlighted why both have only conceded thrice coming into this test.

He said: "After the game it felt much more clear they deserved to win than after the analysis". After their pulsating clashes in the UEFA Champions League and the 4-3 thriller in the Premier League in 2018, this affair was more pragmatic with possession nearly equal and big chances also shared evenly. But when a team plays against Liverpool, especially away from home, they simply can not go into the game without some kind of plan to stop the likes of Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane from wreaking havoc. The Senegalese striker has scored four league goals against them, and only has a better record against Crystal Palace. That is how they score goals. "For Salah it was the first one so we will see in seven or eight years", added the Manchester City manager. That is why I have so much credit for what we have done. It makes no sense to moan about it when you are in it but now it is over so I can moan about it.

The manager also provided an update on the fitness of James Milner, who was forced off midway through the first half with a hamstring problem.
