Gabriel Jesus ‘not happy’ with decision to hand Riyad Mahrez penalty

Gabriel Jesus ‘not happy’ with decision to hand Riyad Mahrez penalty

In fact, I am still not sure they will make it into the top four.

The vice-captain has been an integral part of the team in the opening months of the season, largely being a key starter in the centre of the park.

Mahrez has now failed to score five of his last eight Premier League penalties, while Jesus has missed two of his last three for City.

And to match City, Liverpool must be ruthless against "lesser" opponents. "I will support Riyad if the manager chooses him again".

And former defender Jamie Carragher believes the performance highlights Liverpool's lack of options in the middle of the park.

Between 2009 and 2016, he won 61 caps for England, scoring his only global goal against Moldova in a 2014 World Cup qualification game.

Hazard has done it before for a whole season, of course, when he helped Mourinho and then Antonio Conte bring the title to Stamford Bridge.

But my worry with Chelsea is where their other goals will come from if Hazard stops scoring as regularly, because their main strikers Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata are not exactly prolific. It's certainly the biggest Premier League game of the season to date, and it's going to be interesting to see how Jurgen Klopp out thinks Pep Guardiola tactically.

Paul Scholes hits out at 'embarrassing' Jose Mourinho
I think his mouth is probably out of control and I think he is embarrassing the club ", he said. It's a free country, he can say what he wants".

"Even if Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain comes back, [Naby] Keita goes in or Fabinho goes in they are all the same".

"I'm not talking about that player playing every week". And we hope that they come back healthy and play these easy competitions, the Premier League, the Champions League and all this.

Both managers approached the game as if it was an important one in the title race.

"It was so intense since the last worldwide break", he said after the game.

Klopp said players need a proper break to be fresher, pointing to the case of Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson who played for England at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

"I also have a lot of credit for Kyle (Walker) today and how he controlled (Sadio) Mane", he added.

Yet the Dutchman is adamant the real test is only just starting.

"At the end we need to be happy - I need to be happy - that we didn't lose it because of the penalty".
