City's Mahrez misses late penalty in stalemate at Liverpool

City's Mahrez misses late penalty in stalemate at Liverpool

Liverpool came into the match unbeaten in 17 home games against Manchester City in all competitions but the atmosphere was flat at Anfield and Jurgen Klopp's team have now gone four games without a win. Liverpool beat us but they beat a lot of teams, not just Manchester City. "If I'm being ultra-critical, we just got a bit sloppy towards the end".

"We have to defend, but not in the approach play because it's boring and we have to be ourselves". They are right. So we won the Premier League.

Steven Gerrard's men will be bouncing from their 3-1 win over Rapid Vienna in the Europa League on Thursday evening, and they will look to take that form into the match with the league leaders, who have already turned Rangers' bitter rivals Celtic over this term.

"Rangers have done that as well over many years with all their successful teams but last night was. wow!" If you work hard, you earn it, you deserve it, and that's what we try to do mixed up with very good football, that's the plan.

I'm sure the supporters are going to be going to Ibrox in good spirits.

Gerrard added: "All my players are for sale". We have to start anew.

"Now we will have three days together until we play City and make the boys aware of what was wrong".

Fulham pressed forward in the opening minutes as they looked for their first win over Arsenal since January 2012, and Argentine midfielder Luciano Vietto very almost beat Gunners keeper Bernd Leno in the second minute.

Former Hearts boss Jim Jefferies has claimed that both Celtic and Rangers are not as good as they were and thinks that it is perhaps the ideal opportunity for the Jambos to push for the league title. There was a bump in the road on Wednesday but we've got to keep trying to push forward and gather as many points as we can.

Klopp has been described as Pep Guardiola's nemesis but the German insisted there is no magic formula to beating City. After none of these games you go into the dressing room and think, "Now we know how to beat Manchester City", because there is no real way, no one thing that you have to do.

"Now I'm back home and playing for the team I love, so all of that goes out of the window and I'll be doing everything I can to help Rangers win the three points".

Moreover, the Reds will be forced to wait until the final moment to make a decision over whether Naby Keita will feature on Sunday after he suffered a back spasm in the midweek defeat to Napoli.
