Guardiola again pondering April falls as City run out of steam

Liverpool will not go to Man City to defend says Van Dijk

After dominating Pep Guardiola's side 3-0 in last week's first-leg at Anfield, the Reds qualified courtesy a dominating 5-1 aggregate against a team that has dominated English football in recent years.

Jurgen Klopp named the expected starting lineup, with Mohamed Salah deemed fit enough to start.

Guardiola was incensed by the decision, earning himself a seat in the stands as he was sent off at half-time for his furious on-pitch rant at referee Antonio Miguel Mateu Lahoz.

"I know what happened in Monaco last season, at 1-1, with an incredible penalty [not given to] Sergio Aguero".

The late George Best liked to tell a story that involved a champagne waiter arriving at his hotel room and, upon seeing the Manchester United great accompanied on his bed by a former Miss World and thousands of pounds of casino winnings, asking: "George, where did it all go wrong?"

As a result, the Manchester City chief was ordered to watch the second half of the Champions League clash from the stands.

'I would have been nervous at 3-0 down at half-time, but we would still have had a chance'. You won't find a team who can keep the same momentum, the same rhythm, the same pace with this amount of games.

They've been very poor in the league this season too, but at least they've got themselves into gear at the back end.

Gabriel Jesus admitted Manchester City's Champions League exit was tough to take.

The Wizards finished off their disappointing season as the 8 seed after finishing 4th in the Eastern Conference a year ago . No sequence on Saturday showed what Toronto is about more than a late-fourth-quarter possession ending in a 3 for Wright.

Guardiola did however suggest that Lahoz enjoyed being the centre of attention and often made incorrect decisions, calling him "special":"I know him from Spain so I could imagine that".

In the same time, City's seven seasons in the Champions League since being bought over by the riches of Abu Dhabi's Sheikh Mansour, have returned just one semi-final.

"These kind of games, this competition the impact is so big".

In the last four they could meet two of the aforementioned teams, with Barcelona were surprisingly knocked out by Roma on away goals despite leading 4-1 from the first leg.

Bayern and Madrid are potential semi-final opponents should they come through their quarter-finals unscathed on Wednesday.

The Premier League trophy will still be won — within weeks given City's 13-point lead — to go with the League Cup that is already in the Etihad Stadium trophy cabinet.

"We created chances, but of course it's not easy because they had ten players behind".

City next play Tottenham in the Premier League on Saturday evening.
