Liverpool 0-0 Man City: Why were there no fireworks at Anfield?

Riyad Mahrez Mahrez deflated by Anfield penalty miss- Stones
| 08 October, 2018, 12:57

Liverpool drew with Manchester City on Sunday to maintain their unbeaten start to the league season and remain level on points with Chelsea and City at the top of the Premier League table.

The Premier League clash finished goalless, meaning City, Liverpool and Chelsea are joint-top of the table going into the second worldwide break of the season.

Mahrez has now missed five of his last eight Premier League penalties, four for Leicester, from where he signed for Sh7,932,662,067 (£60 million), and one for City. "That's the work they have to do, the analysis of penalty-takers".

However, Riyad Mahrez was off target from the spot-kick. "Riyad feels deflated, he feels he has let us down", he said.

The Citizens remain in pole position, but they are in a three-way tie with the Reds and Chelsea at the Premier League summit going into the worldwide break.

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.

The Reds' next game comes against Klopp's closest friend, David Wagner, as they travel to Huddersfield Town on October 20 looking to return to winning ways.


It is perhaps understandable they would struggle to deliver the stellar figures they produced last season and there is still plenty of time for them to punish opponents again, but against City they were nowhere near their best.

It also extended Liverpool's run without conceding a home league goal to 811 minutes.

'I watched it because I wanted to get the rebound but I was very happy that it didn't go in.

Liverpool made the stronger start, although Manchester City went on to control proceedings in the first half as they slowed the game down.

Fulham, who equalized through Andre Schurrle, have the worst defensive record in the Premier League and have now conceded 21 goals this season. Yet it was an absorbing game and one that ended with both Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola proving that they can organise a back four as well as a front three.

Barkley's goal came via his knee from a few meters out and completed a memorable few days for the midfielder who has been recalled to the England squad for the forthcoming games against Croatia and Spain. We know this club how complicated it is playing in this stadium and how risky they are. You can not defend over 95 minutes, 100 percent but I thought how we defended was brilliant. "I want to keep doing it and keep everyone happy".

When asked about his condition, Klopp said: "Too early".
