Mahrez misses late penalty as Man City draw at Liverpool

Mohamed Salah scored Liverpool's fourth in last season's thriller at Anfield

But there was late drama when Virgil van Dijk brought down Leroy Sane with a few minutes to play.

Riyad Mahrez stepped up to take the spot kick but hit it out wide of the goal.

As a result, the two teams, who started the day as the top two, extended their unbeaten start to the season, but they are now locked on 20 points with Chelsea, who won earlier in the day at Southampton.

In the 75 minute Mahrez tried his luck from 18-yards out, but this time the Reds keeper was at his best with an acrobatic fingertip save to turn his shot around the post.

Three thoughts on Sunday's top-of-the-table clash at Anfield in which Liverpool and Man City settled for a 0-0 draw.

"It's very tough, probably the toughest away game of the season in the Premier League", the Germany global toldESPN FC. "But as a player there is not much more that you can achieve than playing these type of games, because when you play them or when the atmosphere is like that, you know it's a big thing".

The 51 per cent possession allowed to City was the lowest they have enjoyed since Guardiola joined the club in 2016 and indicated how much the two teams cancelled each other out. "How we played was different to previous seasons. We were close, more than ever to winning here but it is better than last season when we lose and especially when we try to be ourselves all the time", he added.

"That's why I say going away is not a big problem but now you call a manager of any country and ask him to leave out one or two players and he says, "I am under pressure as well" because now it's Nations League".

City probably asked more questions than Liverpool and such was their quality on the ball, they always looked in control and had Riyad Mahrez not missed his 86th minute penalty kick you couldn't argue with the reigning champs edging this one.

The most recent of those saw City's Champions League dreams ended for another year in the cauldron of a European night on Merseyside with a 3-0 quarter-final first leg defeat.

"There were not a lot of chances in the game; at the end, we were lucky they missed the penalty".

"We hope that they come back healthy and play these easy competitions - the Premier League, the Champions League and all this". "Against a very good team we managed to do that".

"I am really happy with what the boys did today", said Klopp.
