Mahrez misses late penalty as Man City draw at Liverpool

Mahrez misses late penalty as Man City draw at Liverpool

"It was always the aim (to stay unbeaten) looking at this period".

Liverpool's German manager Jurgen Klopp reacts ahead of the English Premier League football match between Liverpool and Manchester City at Anfield in Liverpool, north west England on October 7, 2018.

Liverpool have been touted as Manchester City's closest challengers for the Premier League this season and are now level with Pep Guardiola's side and Chelsea on 18 points after eight matches, having yet to be defeated in the league.

A wayward finish from City's club-record £60 million ($79 million) signing summed up an afternoon to forget in attacking areas for both sides. However, they have lost their last three matches to Liverpool, conceding nine goals in the process, and Gundogan feels his team cannot afford to make any mistakes as the likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino can pounce on any small error. The highlight of the encounter came in the dying minutes of it when Manchester City was awarded a penalty which Riyad Mahrez failed to convert.

- Mata, from outcast to saviour?

Both London clubs have enjoyed impressive starts to the 2018-19 campaign, with Chelsea joint-top going into the second global break of the season. No Kevin De Bruyne in the matchday squad seems like Pep is going toe to toe with Klopp with a similar 4-3-3 formation.
