UEFA Charge Guardiola, Liverpool After UCL Tie

Liverpool

Liverpool

Liverpool went into the game with a 3-0 advantage from the first leg but City piled the pressure on immediately when Gabriel Jesus scored inside two minutes.

The Spaniard was sent to the stands for the second half having remonstrated with Antonio Mateu Lahoz over the decision to disallow a goal by Leroy Sane which was in fact a legitimate finish.

The Reds secured their place in the semi-finals of Europe's elite club competition for the first time in 10 years thanks to a brilliant 5-1 aggregate win over the Citizens.

"I don't have regrets", Pep said. That's why he sent me off.

"When it comes from Milner it is not offside, and we go to half-time 2-0".

The drama was at its most fierce just before the break as Bernardo Silva hit the post and Sane was then thwarted by a flag raised wrongly after the ball came to him off Liverpool's James Milner. I didn't insult him. "He likes to be special", Guardiola said in an interview for the Champions League.

"He's a referee who likes to feel different, he's special. That's why he sent me off", Guardiola said after the game. Meanwhile, Raheem Sterling was also bumped in the box by Andrew Robertson but no penalty was awarded.

"It's different when [Mo] Salah's goal at Anfield is offside", Guardiola said.

Guardiola played an attacking lineup, with just three defenders against Liverpool's front trio, and the gamble looked as if it might pay off in the first half.

When those are the standards you set yourself, uncomfortable questions follow if the big games go awry with any kind of frequency. They haven't done that in the last two games. "Whenever people see the things, he will decide the opposite".

Of guiding Liverpool to the semi-finals for the first time since 2008 Jürgen Klopp said: "It will be hard, 200 per cent".

"It was all positive, there was nothing negative, but I needed to remind the guys that we had 50 minutes to be in the semi-finals of the Champions League and we needed to give more".

"I walked up the stairs and somebody told me (Roma had qualified) - I really thought it was a joke".

Second-half goals from Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino cancelled out Gabriel Jesus' opener at The Etihad on Tuesday night as Jurgen Klopp men sealed a comprehensive victory over the Premier League leaders.

"We created chances", Guardiola said, "but of course it's not easy because they had 10 players behind".

'I have no problem conceding but if it happens you have to react.
