City's Mahrez misses late penalty in goalless draw at Liverpool

City's Mahrez misses late penalty in goalless draw at Liverpool

"Liverpool should be upset not myself", he said. It's how it is in my job; if I win games, I know everything about football, if I lose three in a row, people think I have no clue about football. Benjamin Mendy is also fit for the game, and the return of the French worldwide is another positive for Pep to ponder in his team selection.

The Pharaohs star has scored just three goals in his first seven Premier League games this season, with question marks hanging over his ability to reproduce the form that saw him finish as the competition's leading scorer with a record 32 goals last term.

Liverpool did a good job of compressing the space in front of their defence, making it harder for the likes of City midfielders David Silva and Bernardo Silva to create.

'This was a very important win for us against Hearts.

Liverpool are on a 24-match unbeaten run at home in the Premier League.

"Well, the last 12 months have shown us that not many teams are going to do it".

It is Liverpool's second successive match against a probable title rival after last weekend's draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, which lived up to its billing.

It was not just the result but the manner of it that left Reds fans disappointed, but Klopp sees plenty of cause for optimism ahead of Sunday. "It is a good match, a good combination", said Klopp, via the Telegraph. "It's disappointing because I felt we had a real chance of picking up all three points". In the last 15 minutes they had two big chances and scored a goal.

The low unemployment rate provided more evidence of a booming economy , which is now in a record eight-year streak of job gains. In the past four quarters, average hourly earnings increased by 2.8% and accelerated to 3.1% in the past two quarters.

"Because it's only football, it's nothing else, we don't save lives". The team put in a good performance again.

"A lot of times it was really close but there was no real ideal decision".

"We are enjoying playing well and scoring goals", Hazard said. I am completely relaxed.

Given we haven't had the best start to domestic action this season, we could be in a much worse position than we are. I know we are capable of it.

"They came out so far that, once the offside wasn't given, there was no chance to recover". Tottenham as well", and added "But for us, for Manchester City, we want to defend our title, and they are contenders.

Liverpool, who remain unbeaten in their last 18 home games against City, came out roaring and dominated the opening 10 minutes but Pep Guardiola's visiting side weathered that early storm and were the more risky after the break.

But for one reason or another, Aguero is yet to score at the home of Liverpool in nine appearances for both Manchester City and Atletico Madrid. Then it can work. When somebody's telling me, "Good luck for Sunday", I think always, "Unfortunately, we need it".

"It was a back spasm".
