Pep Guardiola: Manchester City draw with Liverpool 'one of my happiest days'

We fought until the last minute and put everything out on the pitch.

"I can only assure (people) they are going to play the way I want". "Tomorrow I will be happy but in this moment I am a little bit disappointed". "This is one of the most special days of my life".

Guardiola accepted City were not clinical enough once again, with Aguero unusually profligate from a couple of great opportunities late on while David Silva and Kevin De Bruyne were also culpable. "They deserved the goal, of course, but I thought we could have scored more".

"I would say Pep Guardiola's Barcelona squad was the flawless role model for a winning situation", Klopp said at a pre-match news conference.

Former Everton defender John Stones produced one of his best performances since his £47.5m move to City last summer.

"John Stones has more personality than anyone in this room - more balls than everyone here".

And when Can found Firmino inside the box with a raking ball from deep, City full-back Gael Clichy panicked and tried to barge the Brazilian off the ball, leaving referee Michael Oliver with no choice but to point to the spot. Liverpool match or better their opponents in quality scoring chances created every single week. Can you imagine the advice I say to Aguero and the other guys to score a goal?

"Immediately after the game, Adam said "sorry" to me and I thought 'why?' - but now I know why he thought he had to say sorry".

He studied under the chief priest of Gorakhpur's Gorakhnath Temple, Mahant Avaidyanath, who was also a four-time parliamentarian. The oath-taking ceremony was held in the presence of PM Narendra Modi and party president Amit Shah.

Centre-back Keane, 24, faced Reds in a 2-1 defeat at Anfield two weeks ago Who is better at indoor kick-ups? I can not change it.

City's players, Guardiola revealed, had been moping around the training ground - "they were so, so sad" - since the team's Champions League elimination by Monaco on Wednesday, and were now facing a direct rival for the top four that specializes in winning heavyweight Premier League games.

"It was intense, we defended well".

It was surprising then that the Manchester City coach thought a 1-1 draw against Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday represented "one of happiest days of my career".

Both sets of fans will likely shrug their shoulders at the draw; it would have been so easy for either team to walk away with all three points.

With the result, City remain in third place, two points behind second-placed Tottenham Hotspur with Liverpool a point behind the Sky Blues in fourth place.

Lallana offered his apologies to his teammates after the match, but Klopp insists that they were not needed and hailed the 28-year-old as one of the most technically-gifted players he has ever worked with. Probably for him it was a clear penalty but in the first half we had a clear one as well.
