Pep Guardiola Leaps to Defence of John Stones After Liverpool Draw

Pep Guardiola Leaps to Defence of John Stones After Liverpool Draw

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola said his side's performance in the 1-1 draw with Liverpool gave him "one of the most special days in his life".

The Citizens saw themselves go behind in the game shortly after half-time, when James Milner scored from the penalty spot, but Argentina forward Sergio Aguero managed to rescue a point for Guardiola's side in the 69th minute of the match.

Lallana's late miss, when he failed to connect with a gilt-edged chance to win the game, may take some living down. As good as Gabriel Jesus unquestionably is, the difference that players like Aguero can make was once again apparent here, in a positive sense for City and a negative one for Liverpool.

"The most frustrating thing is that after the games against the smaller teams we looked back and all came to the conclusion we could have done it better, given more in the game". We had three or four chances, open goals in the first half, in the six-yard box. That's how it is.

Defeats to relegation-threatened Hull, Leicester and Swansea in the Premier League since the turn of the year, coupled with their FA Cup elimination at the hands of Championship side Wolves, has left many Liverpool supporters dreading those kinds of fixtures.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed Adam Lallana apologised for his miss in the wake of the Reds 1-1 draw against Manchester City. But, of course it's a success.

With top-four rivals Manchester United and Tottenham victorious earlier on Sunday, Liverpool and City needed a win to strengthen their bid to finish among the Champions League places.

But was the result satisfactory for either side and where does it leave them in the race for Champions League qualification?

"Liverpool had all week to prepare and they always fight until the last moment. At least we showed spirit that we didn't show in the first half in Monaco". "No idea! I'm more interested in what mood we are in". Their 0-0 draw against Sunderland brought Sean Dyche's men their third away draw of the season, the Clarets having lost their remaining 12 games away from Turf Moor.

"We created more than them". By the time Aguero ballooned a volley over the crossbar in the closing stages, nearly all of the players had run themselves to a standstill.

What followed post the equaliser was a frantic final 15 minutes as both sides upped the tempo, opening up the game in the process but somehow were unable to add to the score.

It was end-to-end stuff for pretty much the entire game; the reason the scoreline is so small is just because players couldn't seem to hit the target. I am so proud of my players. Monaco are flying in the league and in the Champions League, too.
