Guardiola confirms he wanted Mahrez to take penalty

Last season, Milner, Henderson and Wijnaldum averaged 0.6, 0.3 and 1.6 successful dribbles per 90 minutes in the Premier League.
This was not the grand spectacle so many expected.
Klopp and his City counterpart Pep Guardiola were satisfied with their team's displays in a tight, tactical encounter which finished 0-0 at Anfield, but the German was clearly frustrated to now lose his players for worldwide duty. It led to Anfield being shrouded in a cloak of caution. After their pulsating clashes in the UEFA Champions League and the 4-3 thriller in the Premier League in 2018, this affair was more pragmatic with possession nearly equal and big chances also shared evenly.
"We know how complicated it is to play this team in this stadium". The goalkeeper. We can not forget against which team we compete and we made that performance. Don't lose the ball in the wrong moment, otherwise you have a big problem. "Both teams did well".
The City boss said: "Gabriel wanted to take the penalty".
City remain top of the table on goal difference, but both teams are now locked with Chelsea, who were 3-0 winners earlier at Southampton, on 20 points from eight games. But when a team plays against Liverpool, especially away from home, they simply can not go into the game without some kind of plan to stop the likes of Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane from wreaking havoc.
City, always committed to all-out attack, were literally over-run in those spells and could not recover. In Guardiola's three seasons at Bayern Munich, he won the Bundesliga three times, and two of those were while Klopp was at Borussia Dortmund. "A clean sheet at Anfield is not something you can do very often", reminded the England global. We controlled it through Riyad Mahrez, Bernardo Silva, the guys to give the extra pass. Up and down they are the best team in the world in these transitions.
"If you play so quick they are much better than us".
Jurgen Klopp made a surprise decision by dropping Trent Alexander-Arnold in favour of Joe Gomez at right-back, but the Liverpool manager's selection was vindicated by the 21-year-old's outstanding performance.
Klopp echoed Guardiola's sentiments that Liverpool had more than one eye on City ahead of the game, and suggested his team were more reluctant to jump into challenges and press the reigning champs high. Also, City have lost just one of their last 25 away games in the top flight, and they are yet to taste defeat in the PL this term. Sterling's experience gave him the edge at times, but Gomez stuck to his task; if he made a mistake, he was able to rectify it nearly instantly.
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.
It may not have been the free-flowing City that has carried it all before it - but it was a more nuanced tactical approach created to avoid the carnage of last season at Anfield and nearly resulted in a crucial victory.
Riyad Mahrez is "deflated" after missing a late penalty in Manchester City's 0-0 draw with Liverpool, revealed team-mate John Stones.
"Sergio has scored a lot of goals but there were periods when he didn't score goals".
Reflecting on the match as a whole, Van Dijk continued: "Their defence did well".
The previously unstoppable Liverpool registered just two efforts on target, with City mustering the same.
That is despite Salah, Firmino and Mane not yet operating with maximum efficiency or explosiveness. That was really important to see it agains, to adjust a few things.
But the Egyptian again looked far from his best and snatched at the sort of chances he buried last season.
"So there's nothing better than playing these type of games".
Liverpool's front three hasn't yet found the form of February and March yet this season with the wide players, Mohammed Salah in particular, diminished by the more defensive approach being adopted by the full-backs.
