Manchester City chief, Pep Guardiola, declined to reprimand Riyad Mahrez, after he missed a punishment in Sunday’s goalless draw with Liverpool.
Mahrez had the opportunity to anchor a restricted triumph for City at Anfield, after Leroy Sane was felled in the zone by Virgil van Dijk.
Be that as it may, the previous Leicester City star blasted his spot-kick over the bar.
Regardless of the stunning punishment, Guardiola stated: “[Riyad] had the strength and the balls to take the punishment, in preparing he shoots culminate punishments however here and there it occurs.
“The typical taker is Sergio Aguero yet he wasn’t there. We played so well so in the event that you need to break down the outcome it was alright.
“Last season we lost here, and this season we drew, perhaps next season we will win.”
On his group’s general execution at Anfield, Guardiola included:
“We contended and we controlled them as far as the counter assault with their front three.
“Our back four was so great and we appreciated a ton of patient develop, yet we didn’t make significantly after that. It’s a decent outcome.
“We attempted to win and we didn’t surrender at Anfield which is very extraordinary. We had our shot and we endeavored to act naturally.”
