Riyad Mahrez's penalty miss for Manchester City against Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp has an impressive managerial record against Pep Guardiola

"So close. It's one of those things in football".

The Algeria worldwide and Gabriel Jesus had stepped up to take the penalty, before Guardiola sent Benjamin Mendy to give Mahrez the duties.

"We have to start thinking about the players". They are so good.

"Not smart to dive in there, it was a penalty", the Liverpool defender said to Sky Sports. It is important to give that pace, that up and down.

"Up and down they are the best team in the world in these transitions, offensive, defensive, they are built for that".

The Belgian said he did not know if he had ever played better than this season.

Mourinho has been roundly criticised in the past two seasons after his United team emerged from Anfield with successive 0-0 draws.

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.

"I think Arsenal have done very well and Unai Emery has done very well but I don't think they're going to be challenging for the title".

But when I watch the Gunners, I don't see a team that can challenge for the title. You need to finish.

"We stood strong and showed great mental strength", said Stones after the game.

City were also a lot more pragmatic than usual and did not commit as many men forward as normal - for example their full-backs Benjamin Mendy and Kyle Walker, who were both aware of the threat Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah posed on the counter. And in no game we played so far, the game was level like it was today. Even when we won 3-0 at home and 4-3 at home, it was not like that. Don't lose the ball in the wrong moment, otherwise you have a big problem.

"You can not defend them over 95 minutes at 100 percent". They remain on five points, one place above the relegation zone. That is how they score goals. "It was a tough game against the champions and I'm happy we kept the clean sheet", he added. We had a little setback on Wednesday.

Of course, I did not expect to be saying that after only eight games. It was so much better today. We defend so well as a team; it starts from the front with the work-rate they put in. No doubt about that.

"They struggled to get a foothold in the first half".

The point allowed City to regain top spot from Chelsea, who had briefly taken over after their win over Southampton earlier in the day, but their opponents dropped to third.

The Spanish coach finished the love-in between himself and Klopp.

"We didn't concede one shot on target so that is quite special". In fact, I am still not sure they will make it into the top four. "We had our chance".
