With designated penalty takes Sergio Aguero not on the field, Mahrez moved Gabriel Jesus aside to take the responsibility.

But Mahrez should have won it for City with four minutes to go after Virgil van Dijk was penalised for bringing down Leroy Sane, instead blasting his spot-kick well over the crossbar.

City had the ideal opportunity to end their bad run at Anfield but Mahrez, not particularly reliable from the spot, blazed his effort high into the stand.

Good evening! Welcome to the Live Updates for Liverpool Vs Man City in a top of the table clash.

Manchester City now sits second in the Premier League standings with 19 points, but third-place Liverpool has earned just as many points and only trails its rival by a six-goal differential.

The global break now arrives for Liverpool following a run of seven fixtures in 23 days that included encounters with City, Paris Saint-Germain, Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Napoli. Only Bournemouth, Chelsea, Watford and Wolves have made fewer line-up changes than Liverpool's eight line-up changes in the Premier League this season, with each member of their front three starting every game in addition to featuring prominently in the cup competitions.

"We have to recognise against which team we put in this performance", he said, adding "at Anfield, stopping probably the three best attackers in the world". We played so well so if you want to analyse the result it was okay.

Pep Guardiola has surprisingly revealed that Manchester City might be able to call on Kevin De Bruyne when his side visits Anfield tomorrow.

"So the pressure is on these players A because of the amount of games and B because of the type of games they play". Van Dijk is a top central defender. "He was on the pitch when the first penalty was not given", the City manager said.

"It shouldn't have happened but obviously I'm happy that we didn't concede".

'Last season we lost here, and this season we drew, maybe next season we will win'. Until roughly this time previous year the criticism of him was always that his finishing didn't match up to his excellence in other areas, and he seems to have reverted to that impression of him: 29 shots on the league this season have yielded only three goals. After a challenging run of games, they return to action with an easier period which starts against Huddersfield, Red Star and Cardiff.

Referee Martin Atkinson was absolutely right to award Manchester City their penalty in the dying moments.
