Pep Guardiola reveals the Manchester City player he is ‘in love’ with

Pep Guardiola has expressed his love for Riyad Mahrez after Manchester City’s clash with Liverpool on Sunday.

The Sky Blues faced off with their title rivals at the Etihad, looking to extend their lead atop of the table to four points.

However, thanks to Liverpool coming from behind on two occasions, Man City were forced to settle for a draw, leaving them just one point above the Reds with seven games left to play.

After the game, Guardiola stated that he was in love with Mahrez:

“I’m in love with Riyad [Mahrez]; he is an incredible player and person. Today [Sunday], we thought we needed a different quality upfront. We will need him until the end,” Guardiola said.

“I’m really happy with the way we played. We played well [in the] first half, it was tough for 10 minutes in the second half, but that is normal when you concede. “They have quality and a lot of threats, but we performed well. It is football, these things happen. How many managers say, ‘in the last minutes, we can’t concede’, we can concede until the referee blows the whistle.”

Kevin De Bruyne on Riyad Mahrez’s miss

Guardiola’s comments on Mahrez of course come after the Algerian failed to win Man City the game in the dying moments.

Mahrez burst through on goal and opted to shoot instead of passing the ball to Kevin De Bruyne who looked to be in a much better position.

Speaking after the game, though, KDB did not seem too upset by Mahrez’s choice: “[Mahrez] chose to chip the keeper. If it goes in, it’s a wonder goal, but it didn’t go in and that can happen.”
