Manchester City's away fixture at Liverpool's Anfield ended in a 0-0 draw, but it was not without entertainment.
Nearing the end of the match, Virgil van Dijk brought Leroy Sane down in the Reds' box to hand City a penalty. And new man Riyad Mahrez stepped up, arguing with Gabriel Jesus over who should take the shot despite having missed five of his last eight opportunities from the spot.
Meanwhile, users on Twitter on caught their kicks on the Algerian's embarrassing miss. Below are some of the best reactions:
Hoping for redemption?
Folks at Liverpool swear down on James Milner not being that boring.
I just asked Virgil Van Dijk if he was pleased Mahrez skied that penalty over? He said What do you think James? I said I think you are.— Boring James Milner (@BoringMilner) October 7, 2018
Mahrez won't be over the moon, though.
Mahrez taking the pen off Jesus. Religion of peace strikes again— Billie (@Billie_T) October 7, 2018
Just caught the end of Liverpool Vs City, Mahrez should of let him have it, I don’t like all that ego shit, cost them 2 points not that it affects us just voicing my opinion 😂😂😂😂— Sophie Rose (@SophieRoseUTC) October 7, 2018
Yeah...that one was hard to catch.
Mahrez a worse penalty taker than Jones. Didn’t think that was possible 😳— FlexUTD (@FlexUTD) October 7, 2018
We were actually expecting it to land here.
Oh My Word - that penalty kick ball from Mahrez will soon be circling the outer reaches of the solar system along with Courtois's penalty kick ball from the Community Shield match with Arsenal.— Mark Worrall (@gate17marco) October 7, 2018
That is a long list.
He's literally taking this too fat, which is not more than we can say for Mahrez by the way (or the Moonfolk).
John Lennon Airport just announced a near miss. Apparently it’s the ball from Mahrez penalty kick 😂😂— 💙Ashleymadblue 💙 (@ralpha060461) October 7, 2018
Someone's getting Juiced.
We think Mourinho would love this one from his reporter friend Neil Custis.
"He had the courage and the balls to take the penalty, in training he shoots perfect penalties but sometimes it happens," Guardiola said on the miss, following the game.
"The usual taker is Sergio Aguero but he wasn't there. We played so well so if you want to analyse the result it was ok. Last season we lost here, and this season we drew, maybe next season we will win."
