Gabriel Jesus ‘not happy’ with decision to hand Riyad Mahrez penalty

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

The visitors had three previous claims for a spot-kick before Virgil van Dijk's challenge on substitute Leroy Sane eventually resulted in one, but £60million summer signing Mahrez blazed over.

"I think it is not about these games, it is all about the other games, the hard games which we have against mid-table and lower teams", the centre-half said. Before the season started I thought United and Liverpool would both be close to City this time.

Despite Manchester City's record-breaking campaign last season which saw them capture the league title with a century of points, Liverpool got the better of City in three out of the four games they played across all competitions.

Defender Joe Gomez was switched back to the right of defence to accommodate Dejan Lovren's return for his first Premier League appearance of the season after injury.

It has become something of an insult in the modern game to accuse a team of "parking the bus" when they emerge with their goal unbreached and intact.

This was punished in Italy when Napoli stole a win in the dying minutes and the same thing nearly happened at Anfield but Riyad Mahrez's awful penalty kick let the Merseysiders off the hook. We tried to win but at the end we need to be happy - I need to be happy - that we didn't lose it because of the penalty.

In 2016, it announced the recall of 3.37 million vehicles globally over problems with airbags and a fuel emission control unit. They said that power steering and braking would still work but stalling at a fast speed could increase risks of a crash.

Guardiola apologised to Jesus afterwards and the 21-year-old Brazil global insisted he felt confident to take the penalty.

But the Egypt worldwide snatched at the chance with the confidence of a player with one goal in his last eight matches.

"If it is an open game at Anfield you don't even have a one-percent chance", said Guardiola.

Heading into the worldwide break, City, Liverpool and Chelsea are all on 20 points, with Arsenal and Tottenham two adrift.

Quoted in the Mirror, he said: 'It won't affect me at all.

The City boss said: "If you play so quick they are much better than us". Klopp feels the schedule has been tough and is concerned about the continuing workload on players.

It'll be followed by the visit of Red Star Belgrade, themselves dismantled in Paris last week, in European action and then the arrival of Cardiff City at Anfield in league action to round off the month.
