Pep Guardiola explained how Man City looked to slow down the game at Anfield, as he believes Liverpool could be "the best team in the world" on the break.

"What we are doing is really intense for both teams and both showed respect for the other team".

With designated penalty takes Sergio Aguero not on the field, Mahrez moved Gabriel Jesus aside to take the responsibility. Obviously I'm very happy that it didn't go in.

The game did not live up to expectations but, after suffering two chastening defeats at the same venue last season, Guardiola opted to play at a slower tempo this time in order to nullify Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp made a surprise decision by dropping Trent Alexander-Arnold in favour of Joe Gomez at right-back, but the Liverpool manager's selection was vindicated by the 21-year-old's outstanding performance.

Of course, that 1-0 loss was only Liverpool's second of the season, and neither of those reverses have come in the Premier League.

Kevin De Bruyne is back in training, and will be given the chance to prove his fitness, as will Ilkay Gundogan and Benjamin Mendy.

City swept Liverpool aside 5-0 at Etihad Stadium but twice in front of The Kop, Liverpool exposed Guardiola's approach with a 4-3 league win in January that was more emphatic than that narrow scoreline suggests and a 3-0 victory in the Champions League quarter-final first leg in April.

"They are incredibly quick and we controlled them".

Unlike the four enthralling encounters between the two last season when Liverpool beat the English champions three times, a highly-anticipated clash fell flat with neither side managing to register a shot on target until after the hour mark.

"Not the most important penalty in the history of football because it didn't go in". It will never be 0-0, they said.

"We had a clear chance in the last action, so we controlled quite well".

Guardiola has lost both of his Premier League games at Anfield, and Opta tell us he has never lost three straight league matches away to the same opposition. I don't think about him differently for this game because he's a former Liverpool player. Mahrez beckoned him away, as if to say "Trust me", but he must have known that his record from 12 yards did not inspire such confidence. "If you play City you have to be 100 percent spot on and confident". We know this club how complicated it is playing in this stadium and how risky they are.

"The reason why last season he didn't play was for another reason".
