Jurgen Klopp Deems Manchester City the Best Team in the World

GETTYSteven Gerrard has worked with all three Liverpool youngsters

Roberto Firmino then sealed a win for the ages for the Reds, allowing them to make another Champions League semi-final. "That's why he sent me off", Guardiola told a news conference.

It was Salah - who else - who grabbed Liverpool's crucial first away goal, but City couldn't deal with Mané's pace and tenacity in the build-up to the Egyptian's equaliser.

In the end, Liverpool went through 5-1 on aggregate, and Guardiola said it was a deserved result.

Guardiola admitted he was concerned by the appointment of Mateu after he took charge of City's game against Monaco in the last-16 last season and booked Sergio Aguero for a dive when he was caught by goalkeeper Danijel Subasic in the penalty area.

Gabriel Jesus' early goal hinted at a Manchester City fightback, but it never materialised as they struggled to find that clinical edge in the final third.

The Reds thoroughly deserve their place in the last four and will fancy their chances against any of the remaining teams in the competition.

Fired-up by that breakthrough and with the crowd roaring them on, City were first to every ball, applying constant pressure on the Liverpool defence while Juergen Klopp's side were unable to earn some respite.

"We've got Danny Ings there who hasn't played a great number of games".

It follows his dismissal to the stands after he angrily confronted referee Antonio Lahoz at half-time of Manchester City's Champions League exit to Liverpool on Tuesday.

Lovren admits that he hopes to avoid back-to-back Champions League winners Real Madrid in Friday's semi-final draw but insists Liverpool, too, should now be feared by Europe's elite.

"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".

"I wasn't really aware Pep wasn't on the touchline until someone said they saw it on the TV afterwards!"

"Being eliminated in the quarterfinals of the Champions League complicates, it upsets us a little, because you're there close to it".

Two minutes later, Leroy Sane thought he had added a second, poking the ball over the line but was ruled offside. "You have to analyse what we have done in 11 months, I think it's quite good", he concluded.

Hyperbole to be sure, yes, but for much of the season, sports writers all over the world were hyping up City as one of the best teams in not just English, but also European history. "That can happen when you play three top teams".
