"We had our chances as well, it was not as if it was their game", said Gomez, who admitted they were fortunate to escape with Mahrez's failure from the spot.

If not for Riyad Mahrez blazing his penalty high into the Anfield Road end, Virgil Van Dijk could well have been seen as the villain of the weekend after his clumsy foul on Leroy Sane gave Man City a chance to secure a win at Anfield for the first time since 2003.

"But I think it is not about these games, it is all about the other games, the hard games which we have against mid-table and lower teams".

Unlike the four enthralling encounters between the two last season when Liverpool beat the English champions three times, a highly-anticipated clash fell flat with neither side managing to register a shot on target until after the hour mark. "They play for that", Guardiola said.

"You look at Liverpool and you think if the front three don't play or two of the three don't play, they're gonna struggle".

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

"We've had a great start to the season and we want to keep it going".

"Liverpool have to play their best team against Brighton at home and it's nervous until the end at say 1-0".

Liverpool started the game strongly and troubled Manchester City with their pressing but Pep Guardiola's team settled into the game after a few minutes and controlled the game for most of the first half.

"You can not defend them over 95 minutes at 100 percent". The penalty and one or two situations that need a really good save, that is true, but we played City now that often and they are just outstanding. And in no game we played so far, the game was level like it was today. It is for both teams it was really intense and both showed respect for the other team. Don't lose the ball in the wrong moment, otherwise you have big problems.

And with that, he's missed four of his last six penalty kicks.

"We aim to improve every game and we want to win every game".
