It led to Anfield being shrouded in a cloak of caution.
City's tactics were so successful that Liverpool failed to register a single shot on target for the first in the first half of a Premier League game for the first time since November 2017 against Chelsea.
"Riyad Mahrez was taking them really well in training all week, but it happens and we have to move on".
"For both teams it was really intense, and both showed respect for the other team".
City, probably, is a little closer retaining the Premier League title for the first time, but the small step it took could have been a significant one had Riyad Mahrez not missed an 86th-minute penalty and so wasted the opportunity to give his side its first win at Anfield since 2003. Up and down they are the best team in the world in these transitions.
Despite having missed four of his previous seven Premier League penalties, Mahrez shrugged off the claims of Gabriel Jesus but blasted his kick high over the bar.
Guardiola admitted after the game that his team were deeper than usual as they controlled Liverpool's rapid forward line expertly. "I want to keep doing it and keep everyone happy".

Liverpool eliminated Man City from the UEFA Champions League last season.
City return to action in two weeks when they host Burnley.
Liverpool's defence, built around £67m goalkeeper Alisson and £75m central defender Virgil van Dijk, has had much of its vulnerability removed - but the attacking trident that terrorised teams last season is not now firing on all cylinders.
However, City soon began to take control of proceedings and had a strong shout for a penalty, when Dejan Lovren and Sergio Aguero tangled in the penalty area.
There was no shortage of goals at Craven Cottage where Arsenal, who lost their opening two league games, provided further proof that they are starting to gel under new manager Unai Emery. We deserved to win, but sometimes it's important not to lose, as well'.
