Guardiola on defensive after Manchester City's miserable week

Barça PSG Champions League Barcelona Paris Saint-Germain

City understandably failed to maintain the intensity of their first-half display and Salah got the decisive goal when he followed up after Ederson had denied Sadio Mane with a wonderfully-judged chipped finish past the despairing Nicolas Otamendi in the 56th minute.

Salah's equaliser to Gabriel Jesus' opener was absolutely crucial because it all but killed off any hopes of an unlikely City comeback - the importance of that goal didn't go unappreciated, none so more than Sky Sports' Phil Thompson.

Of course Klopp said "Yes you are sitting too deep because you are not pushing up".

Guardiola defended a policy that has seen him spend some £450 million since becoming manager in 2016, but indicated that more would be needed. I was expecting something like that but I liked the reaction immediately after that.

After a glorious attacking display in the first leg, Liverpool did exactly what they had to do in Manchester and deservedly took their place in the semifinals of the competition for the first time in 10 years.

"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". It's a penalty from Robertson on Raheem Sterling right in front of the fourth official.

City will take this defeat hard. But [Antonio] Mateu Lahoz is a special guy.

Loris Karius had surprisingly little to do despite City's dominance, but he escaped repercussions for a poor punch when Sane was flagged offside after finishing from close range, even though the ball had bounced into his path off James Milner.

Guardiola faces the first charge for his protests to the decision to rule out Leroy Sane's effort for offside late in the first half - despite the ball having come to him off a Liverpool player - which led to him being banished from the touchline. "We were beaten by an exceptional team", he said.

Salah had been an injury doubt after limping off in the first leg, but Liverpool were unable to spring the Egyptian free in the first 45 minutes as City peppered the visitors' box with crosses without finding the final touch.

"I just thought that if they score an early goal and it stayed one-nil until half time, once the second half came we would score at some stage and you can never back away from Mo [Salah] and Bobby Firmino".
