Guardiola and Liverpool charged by Uefa

Pep Guardiola

Guardiola was described as a "very disciplined man" by Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp ahead of the game, who even suggested he could learn from his counterpart's cool head.

It is always easy with hindsight, but Pep Guardiola's selections for both legs has to come under scrutiny.

With a typically deft finish, Salah made it 39 goals in a stunning first season at Liverpool and turned a potentially hazardous situation into a stroll at Etihad Stadium for one of the aristocrats of European soccer.

And whatever their respective levels of fitness, Guardiola surely should have started with leading scorer Sergio Aguero and defensive kingpin Vincent Kompany in the second leg.

Runaway Premier League leaders City have conceded eight goals in those three games and threw away a two-goal lead in the Manchester derby which they lost 3-2 to visiting United.

Angered by what he perceived to be the incorrect decision to disallow a goal scored by Leroy Sane just before the break, the Spaniard confronted one of the officials with his complaints before being sent-off. Liverpool were far more clinical with their chances over the two legs.

"People talked from the beginning about Manchester City being favourites and they were favourites, but I think after this there should be more respect for Liverpool".

But in the second half, Liverpool kept City at bay and equalised through Mohamed Salah before securing a late victor via Roberto Firmino.

That win has boosted the Reds' belief regardless of who they draw in the last four, with defender Andy Robertson saying: "It is the semi-final, it doesn't matter who we get".

Guardiola's "total football" philosophy places huge physical demands on his players - there are no breathers for them in any game.

Liverpool, like Borussia Dortmund circa 2010, have, in fact, been steadily progressing throughout this campaign, it's just their gradual improvements get buried under the illusion of chaos that emanates from Klopp and his unique playing style. "We have six games, let's focus on that".

"I know what happened in Monaco last season, at 1-1, with an incredible penalty from Sergio Aguero. Now we have a mini-Premier League and we have to close it".

Fired-up by that breakthrough and with the crowd roaring them on, City were first to every ball, applying constant pressure on the Liverpool defence while Juergen Klopp's side were unable to earn some respite. Who else but Mo Salah to deliver the away goal which took the tie out of City's reach?
