Premier League: Pep Guardiola proud of his players after Liverpool draw


Manchester City fought back to clinch a 1-1 draw against Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday and the performance pleased manager Pep Guardiola. The Citizens have suffered the disappointment of being knocked out of the Champions League just a few days before Sunday's game after losing 3-1 at AS Monaco. Even though Guardiola has won two Champions Leagues, six domestic titles and four cups in his managerial career, he said that Sunday's match was "one of the most special days in his life".

"I am so proud," Guardiola said after the 1-1 draw with Liverpool. "This is one of the most special days of my life. "We lived a tough two days after being out of Champions League. We were sad. Liverpool had all week to prepare and they always fight until the last moment. That is why I am so happy. More than ever I am willing to help the club take the next step forward over the next years if they want to stay with me." Guardiola is under contract with Manchester City for two more years and has refused to comment on the possibility of extending the deal.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp delivered one of his trademark funny comments in response: "He is Spanish. They are a little bit more emotional than Germans." Manchester City are now two points behind second-placed Tottenham, while Liverpool are in fourth place, three points behind the Spurs, but have played one game more than City and Tottenham. The battle for a top-four finish is quite heated at the moment, with Manchester United just four points behind Liverpool in fifth place but with two games in hand.

Manchester City are 1/7 at Bet365 to finish in the top four this season, while Liverpool are 4/9 to achieve a top-four finish.

    I was more impressed what Jurgen Klopp said after the game, something like; "right now I'm not happy with the result but tomorrow I will be, just give me time" Klopp was very honest too about match result and said Liverpool could win it but also could loose it and probably the draw is a fair result.
    And what Guardiola said is just crappy talk, moral booster for his team, that's not one of hist most special days not even close after you won so many cups, he should be angry they didn't win the game in the end when they've had many chances, it's just media talk knowing your players would hear/read that sooner or later.
