Manchester City's Gabriel Jesus 'unhappy' at Riyad Mahrez taking penalty vs. Liverpool

Noah Ferguson | 08 October, 2018, 21:44

"I watched it because I wanted to get the rebound if he missed it", Van Dijk explained. "But now it is over so I can", said Klopp.

They restricted Liverpool to just one shot on target, by retreating deeper and defending in depth.which restricted the visiting side to just 43 per cent possession, which is the LOWEST City have ever had in the Premier League under Guardiola.

But Mahrez, City's club-record signing, blasted high over the bar with regular penalty-taker Sergio Aguero having already been substituted by Pep Guardiola.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has tendered an apology to Brazilian star Gabriel Jesus after allowing Riyad Mahrez to take crucial penalty against Liverpool on Sunday.

Dejan Lovren and Virgil van Dijk also played well despite the late penalty to Man City.

While clearly disappointed at missing out, Guardiola shrugged off Mahrez's penalty shocker, saying: "He had the courage to take the penalty - in training sessions he takes penalties - and in the end it is okay, it sometimes happens".

The 21-year-old said: 'Obviously I'm not happy.

"I would like to have taken it". However, it was important that we didn't lose. "In the training sessions he shoot the flawless penalties, but that sometimes happens and in the end, that is what it is".

Despite the draw against Liverpool, Manchester City are still topping the Premier League standings with 20 points, but they are tied on the same point with Chelsea and Liverpool.

Mahrez said: 'We were very strong defensively.

"Last season we lost here, and this season we drew, maybe next season we will win". It showed we can do both - have the ball and be very strong as well.

And asked if he slowed the game down as a tactic, he admitted: "Yeah, if you play so quick they are much better than us".
