  • Guardiola won't hesitate to play Sterling at Anfield

City's Riyad Mahrez missed a late penalty as the much-hyped clash between the Premier League champions and the side thought most likely to challenge them this season ended in a disappointing goalless draw.

Substitute Leroy Sane was taken out by Liverpool's Virgil van Dijk in the box, but Mahrez blazed his spot-kick way over the bar.

With regular spot-kick taker Sergio Aguero on the bench after being substituted 20 minutes earlier, summer signing Mahrez stepped up to win the game for City, taking the ball of Gabriel Jesus in the process. We want to create but when you make a mistake. "It was really intense and both showed respect for the other team", he said.

Liverpool, now without a win in four games, struggled to test the City goal, leaving goalkeeper Ederson largely untroubled.

Liverpool, who have extended their run of successive home clean sheets in the league to nine matches, will have to contend with more esteemed opponents coming to Anfield and effecting the art of containment. Up and down they (Liverpool) are the best team in the world in these transitions, offensive, defensive, it is built for that.

The scintillating football of the opening weeks of the season has been dulled a touch towards the end of that jam-packed schedule over the last few games, in particular in a flat 1-0 reverse away to Napoli in the Champions League midweek.

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

Cubs forced to play wild card game
The Brewers strung together four straight hits in a three-run fourth, capped by Kratz's two-run single. The series' five potential games have dates , and Game 1, Game 2, and Game 3 have start times .

Asked if people saying Liverpool had worked out how to beat City were correct, Guardiola said: "Good - congratulations". They remain on five points, one place above the relegation zone. Everyone misses penalties, even big, big players. Don't lose the ball in unsafe positions because when you lose the ball there, they counter attack with Firmino, Mane and Salah.

Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane weren't at their best once again, with there still questions lingering over their form after 11 games in all competitions this season.

"We are enjoying playing well and scoring goals", Hazard said.

"They are incredibly quick and we controlled them".

Before his goal at Cardiff, his previous away goal in the Premier League came last December at Swansea, so he clearly delivers less on his travels. "For Salah it was the first one so we will see in seven or eight years", added the Manchester City manager. I think he feels he let us down, but how he played for us, he gave everything, kept the ball and was top.

"The attacking threat from their team - we stopped that today". It is so hard to defend so I am really happy how we did it.
