Mahrez deflated by Anfield penalty miss - Stones

Instead, he skied it and cost his team a historic win at Anfield.

"It's very tough, probably the toughest away game of the season in the Premier League", the Germany global told ESPN FC. Was this, though, really a surprise?

Pep Guardiola insists Liverpool's Mohamed Salah has lost none of his goal-scoring prowess, but the Manchester City boss claims the Egyptian must repeat last season's prodigious feats before he can match Sergio Aguero.

It was reflected in the statistics which revealed no Premier League match this season had fewer shots in the first half - only three - level with Newcastle v Arsenal and Huddersfield against Cardiff.

City defender John Stones said the players had decided among themselves that Mahrez would take the kick after impressing with his spot-kicks in training last week.

"He has played against Liverpool at Anfield before", said Guardiola, adding, "he didn't start last season for the first time but that was for a tactical reason". It led to Anfield being shrouded in a cloak of caution. We don't need to be lip readers to know what they were talking about. It is for both teams it was really intense and both showed respect for the other team. Don't lose the ball in the wrong moment, otherwise you have a big problem.

The Argentina forward has netted at least 28 times in six of his seven full seasons in England and though Guardiola is expecting more from Salah he feels comparisons between the pair are premature.

Guardiola is the purists' purist - the manager who will never sacrifice the principles forged at Barcelona and put into further practice at Bayern Munich and now Manchester City.

Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp took aim at UEFA's new Nations League competition, labelling it "senseless", after his side headed into the global break with a home draw against Premier League leaders Manchester City on Sunday.

Manchester City regained top spot in the Premier League after securing a hard-fought goalless draw at Liverpool.

Klopp was equally content with the draw after emerging from a hectic fixture schedule in which Liverpool played Tottenham, PSG, Chelsea (twice), Napoli and City.

Klopp's liverpool looked nervous throughout the game, with Salah, Mane and Firmino all off the pace.

City, always committed to all-out attack, were literally over-run in those spells and could not recover.

WORST PLAYER - It's harsh because Van Dijk hadn't done too much wrong in the match up until the penalty, but it was a awful decision to bring down Leroy Sane, one that could have cost his side the game. That's why we controlled it so good.

"Up and down they are the best team in the world in these transitions, offensive, defensive, they are built for that". It was so much better today.
