Liverpool 0 Man City 0: Riyad Mahrez Misses Late Penalty As Pep Guardiola’s Team Struggle At Anfield

Riyad Mahrez wasted a glorious opportunity to send Manchester City clear at the top of the Premier League as he missed a late penalty in a disappointing goalless draw against Liverpool.City’s £60m summer signing from Leicester City fired an 85th-minute spot-kick high over the bar after substitute Leroy Sane had been brought down by Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk. It handed the Reds a reprieve as both sides extended their unbeaten league starts to eight games, with City now top on goal difference from Chelsea and Liverpool – all three are level on 20 points.City felt they were denied two earlier penalty claims when Dejan Lovren bundled over Sergio Aguero and Van Dijk handled in an aerial challenge – referee Martin Atkinson waving away the first appeal and awarding a foul for a push by Fernandinho in the second incident. Mahrez also squandered City’s other big chance in a game that failed to live up to expectations, dragging an effort wide, while keeper Ederson was virtually unemployed against Liverpool’s normally potent attack.Photo Credit: Getty
