Pep Guardiola insists Liverpool's Mohamed Salah has lost none of his goal-scoring prowess, but the Manchester City boss claims the Egyptian must repeat last season's prodigious feats before he can match Sergio Aguero.
However, he had no complaints over referee Martin Atkinson awarding the spot-kick after Virgil van Dijk tripped Leroy Sane. With Sergio Aguero having already been substituted, Gabriel Jesus had wanted to take the spot kick but Mahrez waved him off.
"But during the training sessions I see (Mahrez) taking the penalties and it gives me a lot of confidence".
"If we played quickly, they are better than us". They are incredibly good and incredibly quick, but we controlled the game well - we just didn't create. We had our chances in the last minutes to win the game but we miss it.
Japan officials to work together on North Korea
He also pledged that during his meeting with Kim on Sunday, he would raise the cases of Japanese citizens abducted by North Korea. South Korean foreign minister Kang Kyung-wha has given a hint of what a grand bargain between the two countries could look like.
"Salah is younger, it was his first year back in England since his time at Chelsea, so we will see in the future, but a guy who has the quality to score almost 50 goals in a season always has that quality", the City boss stressed, via The Mirror. Up and down they (Liverpool) are the best team in the world in these transitions, offensive, defensive, it is built for that.
That incident brought late drama, but after the thrills of the four meetings last season, this was something of an anti-climax.
He said: "It feels much easier to say it was a penalty when he didn't score but I saw it".
That resulted in these free-flowing juggernauts only producing two shots on target each in a goalless draw as they highlighted why both have only conceded thrice coming into this test.
Conor McGregor v Khabib Nurmagomedov: Russian says he will win fans over
Let us get to the breakdown of UFC 229 , set for Saturday at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas: Khabib Nurmagomedov (26-0) vs. Nurmagomedov will be making his first lightweight title defense and wants nothing more than to succeed against McGregor.
WORST PLAYER - It's harsh because Van Dijk hadn't done too much wrong in the match up until the penalty, but it was a awful decision to bring down Leroy Sane, one that could have cost his side the game.
Guardiola admitted City played a much slower game than in his previous visits to Anfield to restrict Liverpool's ability to punish any mistakes - describing Klopp's side as the best in the world at it. They are right. So we won the Premier League. David Silva had a cross-shot blocked in the 38th minute - a nothing moment but one which saved City from failing to register an attempt in the first half of a Premier League game for the first time since April 2010 against Arsenal. "That's why we controlled it so good today".
James Milner's hamstring injury changed the complexion of the game as City took advantage of Naby Keita's arrival to exert their influence in opposition territory, although again without any real danger for their hosts.
"I made the decision to shoot in the middle - the ball went up".
