Mahrez deflated by Anfield penalty miss - Stones

Mahrez deflated by Anfield penalty miss - Stones

The Blues became the first team in the Premier League to prevent Liverpool scoring this season and the result was enough to restore the Blues back at the summit above Chelsea, who had gone top earlier on Sunday, on goal difference.

With regular penalty taker Sergio Aguero replaced by Gabriel Jesus, the former Leicester City winger stepped up on 86 minutes after Virgil van Dijk had felled Leroy Sane in a taut Premier League clash.

Riyad Mahrez is "deflated" after missing a late penalty in Manchester City's 0-0 draw with Liverpool, revealed team-mate John Stones.

"I think sometimes, not always, we can do better, they had two or three opportunities".

Manchester City are sitting at the top of the Premier League table and are yet to lose a game in the league this season. It is so hard to defend so I am really happy how we did it.

"In training he shoots ideal penalties but sometimes it happens", Guardiola said post-match. "It happens, so we had to move on", the England defender said. It could've been a goal and the game could've been over.

"It kind of got the crowd going for Liverpool and we had to dig in, in the end". "We are not just a team that wants to play and leaves big spaces, but we are a team who want to be strong defensively".

"So there is a long way to go and there will be a lot of teams competing but we hope we are one of them".

When he is on form and linking up the play, as he was doing for much of today's game, he makes City look nearly unplayable in the middle of the park, regardless of how tightly you press them.

Liverpool also played with one eye on the clean sheet, for maybe different reasons.

"Not smart to dive in there, it was a penalty", the Liverpool defender said to Sky Sports.

"He did not start in the first 11 today but when he was on he scored within a minute and that gives confidence for both him and us".

"But with that fixture list I'd have said "I'll buy it, let's start on the ninth matchday".

"It was a great game to play obviously and it's unlucky that we didn't score and unlucky [for City] that we didn't concede as well".
