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

Liverpool

The Reds secured their place in the semi-finals of Europe's elite club competition for the first time in 10 years thanks to a brilliant 5-1 aggregate win over the Citizens.

Second half goals from Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino saw Jurgen Klopp's side hand City their third loss in a week.

Defender Dejan Lovren has lifted the lid on the dressing room exchanges which sparked Liverpool into a second-half comeback against Manchester City.

Guardiola, who has history with the referee, had after the match told reporters that Lahoz likes to be "special", hinting he (Guardiola) thinks very little of the official's integrity. It's different when Salah's goal at Anfield is offside.

The Spaniard later denied he had said anything to justify Lahoz's decision to send him to the stand.

But Sane had a goal disallowed just before half-time.

Antena 3, the Spanish TV channel, said it had analysed on Wednesday night footage of Guardiola's comments to the referee and that he had said "shut your mouth" in Spanish before putting his index finger to his lips as Lahoz left the field at the Etihad Stadium.

"When everyone sees a thing, he wants the opposite. It's too much to send me off because I didn't say any wrong words".


Both players netted their eighth of the season, putting them clear at the top of a list that contains some Anfield greats of yesteryear.

"We've had 10 fantastic months".

"We would have liked to win the Premier League in the last game [against Manchester United] and it was our dream to get through to the semi-finals".

"We didn't play great in the two games but we congratulate Liverpool and focus on the six games we have until the end of the season to wrap up the title".

The Citizens faced a mountainous task of overturning the three-goal deficit set by Liverpool in the first leg of the Champions League quarter final tie.

Of guiding Liverpool to the semi-finals for the first time since 2008 Jürgen Klopp said: "It will be hard, 200 per cent".

"I would say the exception has been the 10 months - winning, winning, winning - that is exceptional".
