  • Guardiola says his team are not built to defend with men behind the ball

City, probably, is a little closer retaining the Premier League title for the first time, but the small step it took could have been a significant one had Riyad Mahrez not missed an 86th-minute penalty and so wasted the opportunity to give his side its first win at Anfield since 2003.

Liverpool drew 1-1 with Manchester City at Anfield on Sunday and given that the home side never really looked like winning the contest, a point will be much appreciated.

A message appeared to come from the City bench for Mahrez to take the spot-kick instead of Gabriel Jesus.

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.

'[Riyad] had the courage and the balls to take the penalty, in training he shoots ideal penalties but sometimes it happens, ' he said.

With Lovren closing in behind him, the Argentina worldwide went down but referee Martin Atkinson waved away penalty claims.

Stones, though, was happy to back Mahrez even though the former Leicester City winger has now failed to score from five of his 12 attempted penalties in the Premier League. They are right. So we won the Premier League.

But the Egyptian again looked far from his best and snatched at the sort of chances he buried last season. One of them is no longer at the club and the other is out injured for the season.

Toyota to recall 2.4 million hybrid vehicles over stalling issue
Toyota doesn't sell the Auris in the U.S. , which is why the Stateside component of this recall only covers the Prius and Prius V. It affects about 1.25 million vehicles sold in Japan , 830,000 vehicles in North America, and 290,000 vehicles sold in Europe.

Southampton manager Mark Hughes said he believed they paid Chelsea "too much respect" and pointed to a first-half miss by Danny Ings, who blasted over from a couple of metres, as a game-changer. It's not that you miss it overnight.

And Lovren was fortunate to avoid gifting City a penalty in the early minutes, having swung wildly at Sergio Aguero in the area.

"I'm playing good football because we are playing good football".

The Dutch defender told Sky Sports: "It was not smart to dive in there - it was a penalty and I said that to the referee afterwards". Of course I wanted to score to help the team to win. "That's why we controlled it so good today".

Instead Riyad Mahrez stepped up to take the spot kick - awarded after Virgil van Dijk brought down Leroy Sane - and blazed his effort high over the bar.

The Blues became the first team in the Premier League to prevent Liverpool scoring this season and the result was enough to restore the Blues back at the summit above Chelsea, who had gone top earlier on Sunday, on goal difference.

"I thought how we defended was brilliant apart from the penalty and one or two situations where we needed Alisson with a really good save".
