Jürgen Klopp's half-time 'rocket' made the difference for Liverpool against Manchester City

Champions League semi final

It's been six years since an English club last won the Champions League (Chelsea), so Liverpool will hopefully have the support of the whole nation heading into the semi-finals.

"The second half was quite different and in that competition you have to play 180 minutes, not ideal, but a good, good game". They were dominant and attacked the Liverpool goal with an animalistic rage and precision that they have come to become known for this season.

The frustration for Liverpool is that they have not been able to convert that into more of a challenge on the domestic front, trailing City by 17 points in the league.

Wave upon wave of further attacks during the first half proved fruitless, however, and the City boss confronted his countryman Lahoz on the field at the break over Leroy Sane having a goal ruled out for offside. You need to react in the right way.

"I was shouting a bit at half-time".

"We've had 10 incredible months".

Guardiola added: "I know [the referee] from Spain".

That sort of confidence prompted Waddle to write in his BBC column: "Liverpool will not be scared of anyone left in the Champions League but the team I think they would prefer to avoid.is Real Madrid".

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

A report last month by the Swiss-based CIES Football Observatory said that 29.5 percent of Champions League matches this season ended in a difference of three goals or more, compared to 21 percent at the same stage last season. There they were eventually ousted by Real Madrid in an incredible tie with a 6-5 scoreline in favor of the Los Blancos, thanks to a splendid hattrick by Ronaldo de Nazario at Old Trafford.

All City's breathless efforts though were undone in the 56th minute when Liverpool got the crucial away goal - Sadio Mane burst into the box, City keeper Ederson dived at his feet but the ball spilled out to Salah who took his time before coolly converting. If you could say something about us in the past, on an average day we lose cheap goals. We were kept under pressure.

City will take this defeat hard.

Anfield chiefs were already facing four counts of UEFA disciplinary action from last week's quarter-final first leg victory over Pep Guardiola's side.

What will surely dominate those thoughts are the fact that the Spaniard's hope of taking City into the elite of Europe, in the company of his former clubs Barcelona and Bayern Munich, remains a goal he has yet to achieve.

Things will certainly get interesting in the near future.
