Chaotic & defying logic - how Man City's party fell flat

Speaking to the BBC after the game City manager Guardiola admitted it was pity his team had allowed United to spoil their title party, but he also stated that his side had done everthing to win the game.

Man City still lead the Premier League by 13 points, but their path to the title is not all plain sailing, as their next six games include Spurs, and five teams battling for survival at the bottom of the table.

"One year ago something happened in Dortmund so we come here to play football and I don't understand this kind of situation".

As a result Klopp and a player will travel to Manchester on Monday afternoon to fulfil their press conference obligations at the City Football Academy before travelling back to Merseyside to train-of which the first 15 minutes are open to the media.

"We have to win two more games and after the game on Tuesday we are going to focus on the Premier League to try as quick as possible to get it".

He acknowledged before Wednesday's game that City's style plays right into the hands of Liverpool, but said he would not budge in his beliefs. He will cling to the fact that City already has beaten Liverpool 5-0 at home in the league this season, and that City has scored at least three goals in 23 of its 49 games this season.

Pogba has been the centre of attention for the last 24 hours following Guardiola's stunning claim that the player's agent, Mino Raiola, attempted to spark a move for the Frenchman to City in January.

Guardiola is obviously not invincible and Liverpool's coach, Jürgen Klopp, knows it best.

"They're nearly qualified but we have 90 minutes".

The former Red believes it is the worst he has seen Manchester City play all season.

It marked the first time Guardiola has suffered consecutive defeats as a manager since 2015 during his time with Bayern Munich and there may be concerns his rotational decisions to rest key players for their UEFA Champions League quarter-final may have backfired with a dent in the overall squad morale. "Always when that happens, we will be close".

Guardiola said it was not yet clear whether Argentine forward Sergio Aguero would be ready to return from the knee injury which kept him out of action at Anfield. "We are a young team and a team to create sometimes, not to defend". We have one eye on Tuesday though.

"In this room, I think there is nobody except the guy talking to you who believes we can go through", Guardiola told reporters.
