Mahrez has now missed five of his past eight Premier League penalties - one for City and four for his previous club Leicester City - and seems highly unlikely to be given another chance after blasting the ball over the bar in the 86th minute.
"Absolutely", Metro UK quoted Klopp as saying when asked which team can challenge Man City and Liverpool for this season's Premier League title. They will have their moments, but I thought we defended them brilliant - apart from the penalty and one or two situations, where we needed Alisson with a really good save. Even when we won 3-0 at home, 4-3, 2-1 at City, over the full match it was never like this.
You have to go further down the table to find Manchester United in eighth place and, much like Arsenal, I do not see them as title contenders at all.
Last month manager Klopp warned Fabinho that it could take him up to six months to adapt to Liverpool's style of play. "You have to call the manager of any country and say, "Can you leave players out?' and he says, 'I am under pressure as well", said Klopp.
Liverpool set to break 40-year-old record after Man City result

They commit so many men forward that they can be caught on the counter-attack, particularly if their full backs are well advanced, but not many teams have the tools to exploit that.
The stalemate at Anfield means City, Liverpool and Chelsea - all unbeaten after eight games - are locked together on 20 points, with the defending champions top by virtue of their superior goal difference. Can Klopp get Salah, Mane and Firmino firing? "I want to keep doing it and keep everyone happy". Sooner or later they will win it, no?
Liverpool are nine points better off than at the same stage last season, and Van Dijk remains satisfied, if not complacent.
