Guardiola's worst week leaves work still to be done at City

  • A security detail book-ended the coach as Jurgen Klopp and his squad arrived

"It's different when Salah's goal at Anfield is offside".

Liverpool took the lead in the first leg with a goal that came from Mohamed Salah's offside run, while City were denied what might have been a crucial second goal in the return leg.

Liverpool got off to the worst possible start conceding a goal after less than two minutes as Gabriel Jesus capitalised on a gap in the Liverpool back line. I didn't insult him, I was polite, I was correct.

"In this competition the teams are so equal and the influence of refereeing decisions is so important".

Guardiola was forced to watch the second half from the stands after being sent off for his protests at the break as free-spending City's dreams of conquering the Champions League for the first time were dashed for another season.

Asked about Salah's clinching strike just after half-time, Klopp said: "We were already through the whirlwind".

While Waddle says Liverpool won't want to face the prospect of playing Real Madrid in the last-four, Serie A specialist James Horncastle believes Roma's superb win against Barcelona has sent out a shock wave across Europe.

"They could have scored two or three goals in the first half but it was 100 percent clear that if we won the ball we'd have an opportunity".

Throughout the course of the contest Lahoz made odd decisions, while his forthright approach to dealing with the players was also striking.

This was a game that put Liverpool to the test. City were always going to come out flying but falling behind in the second minute only added pressure as the home side attacked with a blistering pace.

"Last season it was the round of 16, this season it's the quarter finals, hopefully next season we can go to the semi-finals", he added after Tuesday's defeat. Alex Ferguson's Manchester United (2008) and Rafael Benítez' Liverpool (2005) were the previous two English squads to win the big event. Congratulations to Liverpool and good luck on the semi-finals.

We have to recover mentally.

"I was shouting a bit at half-time. I'm definitely confident that next season we can push everyone, even ourselves, to do better from the beginning to the end".

Liverpool completed a 5-1 aggregate victory to reach the semi-finals of the Champions League.
