EPL: Guardiola reveals why Man City lost 1-0 to Liverpool
Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has stated his team did everything they should as they lost 1-0 to Liverpool on Sunday.
Mohamed Salah scored a winner late in the 2nd half, after turning away from Joao Cancelo.
The defeat potential City are now 4 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 medical and so good,” Guardiola advised 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 research 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 nearly given? But the intention was not given. That is the question, so when the referee decides to talk 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 can’t disallow the goal. But if you decide in the first minute fault, fault, fault… But you know, this is Anfield.”
