Riyad Mahrez, whose penalty record was already less than stellar, stepped up to take it ahead of Gabriel Jesus after Sergio Aguero had earlier been substituted.
And Liverpool fans on Twitter believe Bellamy was speaking nothing but sense about their captain.
Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp took aim at UEFA's new Nations League competition, labelling it "senseless", after his side headed into the worldwide break with a home draw against Premier League leaders Manchester City on Sunday. But there was one fine stop to deny Danny Ings from distance and another even better one to keep Nathan Redmond at bay.
Guardiola said after the game that he would apologise to Jesus, but the striker told reporters: "Obviously I'm not happy".
"We were very strong defensively". We were all disappointed with Wednesday as a 90 minutes as a whole, so we wanted to get off to a fast start. They probably controlled it a bit more in the second half and had a bit more composure when we were rushing it.
James Milner's hamstring injury changed the complexion of the game as City took advantage of Naby Keita's arrival to exert their influence in opposition territory, although again without any real danger for their hosts.
"But for us it's another important point, especially going into the global break with a long break until the next game". Guardiola deployed the pace and height of John Stones and Aymeric Laporte at centre-back: last season, the less mobile and imposing Nicolas Otamendi played in both away games and was swamped by Liverpool's front three.
Those worries are surely premature, with the intense nature of that run of games being sure to take a toll in the legs of a hard-running outfit at some point, and that aforementioned trip to Yorkshire starts off a more favourable run of fixtures the far side of the upcoming global break.
Holding Man City to a clean sheet meant that the Reds have only conceded three goals in their first eight matches. "So, it would be better to win at Anfield, but we don't lose, last season we lost here, this season we draw, maybe next season we win, we will see".
"As a unit, it's all of us". Now we are trying to cover the gap and we are working on that. "We want to do it collectively".
