Gabriel Jesus unhappy at Pep Guardiola penalty call in draw at Liverpool

Adjust Comment Print

Guardiola's Man City created a few chances, and Sane won a penalty for Man City v Liverpool after Van Dijk fouled Leroy.

Yesterday's draw between City and Liverpool and Chelsea's win at Southampton means the three all have 20 points after eight games at the top of the Premier League table.

Jesus stepped up to assume penalty taking duties, only to be moved aside by another winger, Riyad Mahrez, after Benjamin Mendy had run onto the pitch with instructions from the bench.

The City manager apologised to the Brazil global after refusing his request to take the 86th minute spot-kick that could have delivered a significant victory at Anfield on Sunday. I thought how we defended was brilliant. I would like to have taken it, I was confident, so I was not happy that they did not allow me.

"But for us it's another important point, especially going into the worldwide break with a long break until the next game". Jesus added: "Pep spoke with me".

He's a footballer who plays in the position of striker and so it really isn't very surprising that scoring goals is pretty much his modus operandi and probably his favourite thing to do in the world. "I will support Riyad if the manager chooses him again", he said.

Ferrari boss Maurizio Arrivabene said the podium had been within the team's grasp. The stewards investigated the incident, but tellingly took no action.

"It is part of football, you have to go forward and stay strong".

City pasted Liverpool 5-0 in their first league clash last season, but the Reds enjoyed the rub of the green after that with a 4-3 victory at Anfield and would go on to defeat the Citizens 5-1 over two legs in the Champions League quarter-final.

The Premier League signed off before the upcoming October worldwide break in style over the weekend, producing much drama, action and talking points from the 10 games involving all 20 teams across Saturday and Sunday.

Jesus, who has scored two goals this season, revealed that Guardiola apologised to him after the game.

"It's very important and it's something that we can take for the future. So, it would be better to win at Anfield, but we don't lose, last season we lost here, this season we draw, maybe next season we win, we will see".

"We feel we can compete with any team but people seem to be just dismissing other teams and making it a two-horse race, which is not the case", Robertson told Sky Sports News.
