Manchester City's Gabriel Jesus 'unhappy' at Riyad Mahrez taking penalty vs. Liverpool

Manchester City's Gabriel Jesus 'unhappy' at Riyad Mahrez taking penalty vs. Liverpool

With Aguero off the pitch the responsibility was handed to Mahrez - after Jesus was seemingly told to stand down - but with Alisson going the right away he blazed over, making it three failures in his last six.

"They [City] can make so many changes and they are still so strong".

After the Reds managed a 0-0 draw against Manchester City, it left them in third place in the Premier League but level on points with City and Chelsea - who all have 20.

Jesus, who has scored two goals this season, revealed that Guardiola apologised to him after the game.

The previously unstoppable Liverpool registered just two efforts on target, with City mustering the same. It's a good draw and we deserved to win.

"Obviously, I'm not happy", he said, according to the Daily Mail.

The visitors had three previous claims for a spot-kick before Virgil van Dijk's challenge on substitute Leroy Sane eventually resulted in one, but £60million summer signing Mahrez blazed over.


The Brazilian midfielder, who has linked up with his country for the global break, has played three times for the Reds this season totalling 101 minutes.

"We can play a lot better but on days when you are not at your best it is important not to drop points".

While City were far from their best, Pep Guardiola's men also kept their unbeaten record intact. So stick around and I'll give you instant highlights of the goals as they go in, along with the usual pre-match chat. "In the training session he shoots ideal penalties, and ok this sometimes happens so at the end it is what it is".

Pep Guardiola said his gameplan was to control possession and avoid losing the ball in areas where Liverpool could counterattack through Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mané.

"I'm the captain [of Netherlands] and we have a very important game against Germany, so we have to try to be ready for that one and then try to get a bit of rest after that one".

"Mahrez hasn't hit the ground running at Manchester City - he's not been incredible since joining and he's fighting with some really good players to get into the team".

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