Guardiola confirms he wanted Mahrez to take penalty

"I'm just playing good football because we are playing good football", he said.

Club record signing Mahrez has now missed six of his last 10 penalties in the Premier League but says he needs to put the disappointment behind him as quickly as possible.

The Reds played out a tense goalless draw with reigning champions City at Anfield on Sunday, which left the two sides level with Chelsea on 20 points at the top of the table. Riyad was taking them great in training all week and had the courage to step up.

"It was a tough game against the champions and I'm happy that we kept the clean sheet, especially after the penalty".

Sarri's side are yet to be beaten in the Premier League this campaign and won their sixth Premier League game this season at St Mary's Stadium over the weekend.

But Liverpool, who were determined to bounce back from their 1-0 defeat against Napoli, received a let-off when Riyad Mahrez sent his 86th-minute penalty over the crossbar. "In the training session he shoots ideal penalties, and ok this sometimes happens so at the end it is what it is".

It's one thing thumping them in from 12 yards at the Etihad Campus - "he shoots flawless penalties in training", claimed Guardiola.

"I think Arsenal have done very well and Unai Emery has done very well but I don't think they're going to be challenging for the title". We played so well so if you want to analyse the result it was okay.

"So there is a long way to go and there will be a lot of teams competing but we hope we are one of them".
