The match finished 0-0 after the Algerian wasted an 85th minute spot kick
Riyad Mahrez has been slammed after missing a crucial penalty for Manchester City against Liverpool on Sunday.
The Citizens drew 0-0 at Anfield, but had the chance to win the match from 12 yards with just five minutes left on the clock.
A Leroy Sane run down the left tempted the usually unflappable Virgil van Dijk to make an unnecessary tackle which conceded the spot kick.
With Sergio Aguero already substituted, Gabriel Jesus wanted to take the shot.
However, Riyad Mahrez took the ball off him before blasting over the bar.
