With Man Utd breathing down Liverpool’s neck the reds need to improve against the teams further down the league and collect as many victories as possible in the final 9 games. I thought they’d be fine under Guardiola, but then again it’s City!
Pep Guardiola was looking for a response from his City side after their disappointing Champions League exit against Monaco – and it was a tense atmosphere inside the Etihad.
That scenario would require Manchester United to win the UEFA Europa League – where they are now the favorites – and for the last remaining English side in Champions League competition, Leicester City, to win that competition as well.
Both sides then missed gilt-edged chances to win the game, with Aguero slipping when he looked odds on to score.
We’re guessing Roberto won’t want to watch this back any time soon… We fight for that, we play for that. When we miss these type of chances this creates the problems.
But it was Adam Lallana who should have scored the decisive goal, the England global somehow mishitting his shot from eight yards after sublime Liverpool build-up play as both teams lost ground on Tottenham in the race for the second – with Manchester United now just four points behind Jurgen Klopp’s fourth-placed side. Can you imagine me giving advice about scoring goals?
“Of course the way we play is completely different, I am Catalan and he is German so the influence is completely different”.
“We all have to get used to it a little bit”.

While Jurgen Klopp failed to become the first manager to do a league double over Guardiola, his Liverpool team are now unbeaten in 10 games against their fellow top-six sides this season.
“There were a few situations where we couldn’t defend their quality, but we could have won this game”.
Two moments of magic encapsulated why Guardiola and Klopp must stick to what they know best.
The 23-year-old is rapidly becoming one of Klopp’s most important players. Despite offensive players occasionally struggling to be at their clinical best, which has often cost City points, defenders making errors has also been one of major contributing factors to unnecessarily dropped points.
