With regular penalty-taker Sergio Aguero off the field, Jesus showed his interest when referee Martin Atkinson pointed to the spot but manager Pep Guardiola sent out a message telling him to defer to Mahrez.
“Obviously I’m not happy,” said Jesus. “As Riyad, I’ve been practising (penalties). I would like to have taken it, I was confident, so I was not happy that they did not allow me.
“However, it was important that we didn’t lose.”
Guardiola said that he had been impressed by Mahrez’s penalty-taking in training but later admitted he had been unaware the 60million summer signing had missed four of his previous seven spot-kicks.
