Mahrez misses penalty kick as Liverpool, Man City draw

Mahrez misses penalty kick as Liverpool, Man City draw”

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.

On what he thought of the game and the result... But when a team plays against Liverpool, especially away from home, they simply can not go into the game without some kind of plan to stop the likes of Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane from wreaking havoc. "Don't lose the ball in the wrong moment, otherwise you have big problems".

"I would say we were 90 percent spot on ... but it has come after a tough period", manager Juergen Klopp said. It's so hard to defend and I am really happy with how we did it.

And with that in mind, the retired England worldwide is backing the Reds to ease to a 3-2 win against Manchester City at Anfield on Sunday evening.

Liverpool FC got their revenge at the start of 2018 when the Merseyside outfit eased to a 4-3 victory over Manchester City at Anfield to end their unbeaten start to the Premier League season. Both back fours bossed their area of the pitch and ensured their teams earned a valuable point, so praise them for it rather than muttering about negativity and "parking the bus". Are you kidding me?

After starting the season with seven straight victories Liverpool have now failed to win in any of their past four matches as the upcoming worldwide break comes at the right time for Jurgen Klopp's men. "I want to keep doing it and keep everyone happy".

Wins for Chelsea and Arsenal earlier on Sunday added extra pressure, and Liverpool now sit third after eight games, with City top courtesy of a stronger goal difference than both the Reds and Maurizio Sarri's side.

"Yes. I saw it now".

"Arsenal are two points behind, yeah?" The late penalty was a huge opportunity to pull clear at the top and strike an early psychological blow in the title race against a side many perceive as their major rivals. But not the most important penalty in the history of football because it was not in.

"It is a very intense, unbelievable challenge to face Manchester City always - I've said that before - and as the last game of an hard period, it makes the challenge even bigger, so I am really happy with what the boys did", Klopp said. We were lucky in that situation but we deserved it, a bit of luck, because with the performance the boys showed today, it's just good.

"So there's nothing better than playing these type of games".

The club, who parted ways with long-standing manager Arsene Wenger last season, were written off as title challengers after defeats against City and Chelsea but have now won six Premier League games in succession.
