Pep Guardiola says sorry over late penalty miss

It's the biggest game of the Premier League season so far, as Liverpool and Manchester City look to go three points clear of each other at the top.

Stones said City were delighted to keep a clean sheet after conceding seven goals in their past two visits - one game in the Premier League and one in the Champions League - but Mahrez's miss took the gloss off their performance.

Guardiola proved at Liverpool, however, that he is quite rightly not averse to adding a brushstroke of pragmatism to those principles and was nearly rewarded with City's first Anfield win in 18 games, only for Mahrez's miss. The 27-year-old is known for chipping in with goals from midfield and has scored 59 in 338 games for the Gunners.

"When I was up there in the commentary box, I could see the goalkeeper coach, you can see what he's telling him", the Liverpool legend said on Sky Sports.

Mahrez, speaking for the first time about the penalty incident, said: 'My record is good in the Champions League yes, but not in the Premier League. Salah remains an excellent player and will score goals in the future. OK, we miss a bit in front, a little more creativity and pace to finish the action, but it is not easy because [Liverpool] are so strong. Liverpool winger Salah has made a more modest start to 2018-19, certainly in comparison to last season's 44-goal campaign, with just three goals to date.

Opposite number Jurgen Klopp had no issues about the late award of the penalty.

After a frantic opening phase when they struggled to get out of their own half, City were careful in possession without being over-committed, determined not to fall into the traps Klopp and Liverpool had set for them, and which they fell into, at Anfield last season. It was for tactical movement, I wanted to go with Kyle Walker more attacking the right side than him.

City probably asked more questions than Liverpool and such was their quality on the ball, they always looked in control and had Riyad Mahrez not missed his 86th minute penalty kick you couldn't argue with the reigning champs edging this one. "Sometimes you have to be fearless and we weren't able to do that".

And Lovren was fortunate to avoid gifting City a penalty in the early minutes, having swung wildly at Sergio Aguero in the area. "I don't know what's going to happen".

"We are enjoying playing well and scoring goals", Hazard said.

"If we played quickly, they are better than us". If would have defended today like we did against Napoli, it is 7-0.

The Premier League clash finished goalless, meaning City, Liverpool and Chelsea are joint-top of the table going into the second global break of the season.
