EPL: We Did Everything – Guardiola Reveals Why Man City Lost 1-0 To Liverpool

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has said his team did everything they could as they lost 1-0 to Liverpool on Sunday.

Mohamed Salah scored a winner late in the second half, after turning away from Joao Cancelo.

The defeat means City are now four points behind leaders Arsenal.

“We did everything, we played really well and created chances. Most of the time we were really good but we made a mistake. They were so clinical and so good,” Guardiola told BBC Sport.

On the disallowed goal, he said: “This is Anfield, in the Champions League three or four years ago, and we come here most of the time it happens. We have to make a perfect game and we didn’t, we made a mistake, hopefully in the future we can learn but teams like this, [competing] in the Champions League, it is so tight and they punish you.

“The referee says play on, play on, play on, how many thousand million fouls he has almost given? But the goal was not given. That is the question, so when the referee decides to speak to the mangers, to Jurgen Klopp, to my assistant coach and say ‘I am going to be clear, it happens all the time in that way,’ then you cannot disallow the goal. But if you decide in the first minute fault, fault, fault… But you know, this is Anfield.”
