Manchester City leave the Etihad after a draw to Liverpool. The team played well, but was not enough as a late goal kept them tied. With that the result was a bit unfair. We move on to the reaction as City is still close to the top:

Pep Guardiola Reaction

“We are hungry and upset in the locker room, but it was an incredibly great game.

“Statistics or who deserved it more, it doesn’t count. I am going to drink my wine with one point.

“I am incredibly pleased about the performance we played because Liverpool are an incredible team.

“We conceded just two chances against that team - the header in the first half and goal.”

“Our left side was a bit better than our right side. We have incredible players, it’s different to Kevin or Gundogan but our defending of set pieces… everything was a really high standard.

“After eight years, it was really good to perform in that way. I am so proud of my team.

“We travel with the ball all together. We played really good. I know after eight years. I spoke with Jurgen, he knows I admire him.

“Last game against Chelsea, we defended poorly and then had to rely on our keeper.

“The way Liverpool play, we can’t (do that). We don’t have players to play that way.”

“We were incredibly good in all departments. We were not going to win or lose the Premier League today, we just had to be ourselves.

“Now we have to continue and make the run to qualify against Leipzig. Then it’s Spurs next weekend and Villa after that.

“What can I say? These guys, oh my god!”

And on the controversial disallowed goal that would have put City 2-0 up midway through the second half, the boss added: “I didn’t watch it, but I had five interviews before this and all of them asked me the same question.

“After the Newcastle v Arsenal action, I don’t know. I honestly didn’t watch it yet.”
