Pep: City Must Forget United Defeat, We Deserved To Be Awarded Penalties

Alexander-Arnold

All they need, he stressed, is some convincing.

"Contratulations to United. Now we will try, if we are fearless enough, to stand up again and focus on Tuesday", said City manager Pep Guardiola.

It had an effect on the Premier League Champions-elect as the team performance wasn't up to par with their unbelievable form in England's main division.

Since 2016, Liverpool have faced Manchester City five times (four in the Premier League and the latest in the UEFA Champions League).

"But we have 90 minutes all of us - Sevilla, Juventus, Roma and us".

City's team bus was met by hundreds of home fans who had lined the narrow streets at the entrance to Anfield and objects, including bottles and cans, were thrown at the vehicle carrying the players.

"In the first half I tried to do what we've done all season, but maybe it's not enough to win at Champions League level or the Premier League. Of course it is hard but we believe". "We will convince ourselves tomorrow", said the three-time Champions League victor, once as a player and twice as a coach of Barcelona.

Guardiola altered his normal formation and left Raheem Sterling on the bench, with midfielder Ilkay Gundogan brought into the starting lineup.

He said he had made the switch in order to have more control of midfield possession but when asked if the tactical change had worked, the Spaniard was blunt.

Guardiola was fairly classy about the whole situation in his pre-match interview with BT Sport and said: "I know that it is not Liverpool". City suffered the same problems and Guardiola failed to adequately address the problem and whilst some will point to the fact that City did win 5-0 against Liverpool early in the season, that only happened as a result of a Sadio Mane red card that greatly affected Liverpool who were in the game up until that point and could have taken the lead had Salah taken his clear-cut chance.

Putting his thumbs up to members of staff, he then said, "Thanks for protecting us. It is the first time we lose two games in a row, first time in the season it has happened and now we have to recover, try again, come back to basics and win games", added Guardiola.

"Here at Anfield, it is always complicated".

"That is the only way to get anything against Man City and we did it and at the end 3-0 because of our quality, instead of 1-0". I will be honest, if we think about being champions too much, we will not win.

"We could not create chances because they defended deep but we were there for the last pass". And Guardiola admitted the way his side are built to play on the front foot could leave them exposed to an away goal that will nearly certainly seal Liverpool's place in the last four.
