Manchester City and Liverpool Play Out Pulsating Draw to Keep the Title on the LineWith a pulsating draw‚ Manchester City and Liverpool have both kept the title on the line. Is Guardiola happy with the result? Klopp is unhappy. And who will win it in the end? Read on to find out! Here's what we learned from the pulsating draw between City and Liverpool. Both sides are confident that they'll win the league‚ but will it be enough?
Manchester City and Liverpool play out pulsating drawThe top-of-the-table rivals Manchester City and Liverpool shared the spoils in a pulsating Premier League game on Sunday. The game produced plenty of talking points and‚ as expected‚ neither side was able to come away with any real victories. However‚ there were plenty of positives to take from the game. As a result‚ there is a slight gap between the two sides and‚ with this draw‚ Man City remain one point ahead of Liverpool. The game was a great example of how not to lose in the Premier League‚ with both teams displaying brilliant attacking play. City started off brightly‚ securing a 1-0 lead in the fifth minute through a Kevin De Bruyne strike which deflected off Alisson. However‚ Liverpool responded by equalising through Sadio Mane and Diogo Jota. Despite a pulsating final stalemate‚ Liverpool remain in the title race and are a point behind City. After the break‚ Liverpool's attacking play was on fire‚ with De Bruyne releasing Sterling to squirm through Alisson. However‚ the goal was ruled out for offside after VAR. City are on the back foot but Liverpool respond well and regain control with a counterattack through Salah. The game goes on to the final stretch as the two sides fight for a place in the Champions League.
Guardiola happy with resultPep Guardiola will have been happy with Manchester City and Liverpool's pulsating draw. The two sides started the game very evenly and City looked the better side. The first half was dominated by the Citizens‚ with Gabriel Jesus scoring from a Joao Cancelo cross. However‚ after the break‚ Liverpool came out refreshed. Sadio Mane scored on his 30th birthday and Raheem Sterling had a goal disallowed for offside. Riyad Mahrez missed a late chance to win the game. Man City dominated the first half but Liverpool responded well. After the break‚ De Bruyne played in Mahrez who had a shot at goal but Alisson was beaten by a brilliant chip. A brilliant touch by De Bruyne sends City away on the break‚ but Liverpool's defenders thwart them again. On the other hand‚ the Reds resolutely hold on to a 2-2 draw. Manchester City and Liverpool could be title contenders if they win all of their remaining league games. With just seven games remaining‚ City could win every single one. However‚ a pulsating draw was the best possible result for Guardiola's side. With a draw‚ they stay one point ahead of Liverpool and one less to play in the Premier League. However‚ it's important to remember that a draw is still a draw‚ and not a win.
Klopp unhappy with resultJurgen Klopp is dismayed with the pulsating draw at the Etihad Stadium. He is unhappy that City have kept up their title charge while Liverpool have failed to take any points in the title race. The German coach also compared the game to boxing and said that Liverpool's opponents are the closest to 'perfect' in the world. Liverpool's title hopes are in jeopardy after a lacklustre performance. Guardiola‚ meanwhile‚ is furious after the result. While Liverpool are favourites to retain the title‚ City are regarded as toughest opponents in his career. The City manager has clashed with fourth official Andre Marriner in the past. This time‚ the German manager is reportedly unhappy with Liverpool's performance. But there is still hope for Liverpool. The game between Liverpool and Manchester City will be a classic clash of two powerful teams. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was clearly unhappy with the first half performance but was delighted with the second-half performance. After falling behind twice‚ the Reds rallied in the second half. Sadio Mane's goal was the difference in the match and Liverpool were left indebted to Rodri's great tackle on Fabinho in the 85th minute. However‚ it was the decision of referee Paul Tierney that angered Liverpool's manager most.
Guardiola confident of titlePep Guardiola has been optimistic about Manchester City's chances of winning the Premier League this season. His side are on course for a treble and are in contention to win the Premier League again. Guardiola is confident that he will win the Champions League for the third time in a row‚ but has admitted that the team must improve on their results in this competition. Manchester City are unbeaten in the Champions League this season‚ having reached the final last time out. Guardiola said that his team can draw inspiration from their 5-0 win against Liverpool in the same competition. City are without the injured Jack Grealish‚ Gabriel Jesus and Cole Palmer‚ but are confident that they can win the Premier League. City have won nine of their last 10 league games‚ and a 3-0 win over Leicester City means they can beat Chelsea if they win the Champions League. Guardiola is also confident that the team will not lose their last seven league games‚ which includes the relegation game to Chelsea. Manchester City are confident of lifting the Premier League this season. They are unbeaten in nine league games and have a match in hand over Liverpool and Chelsea. Guardiola has even declared that the title is within their reach. If they are able to win the League and the Carabao Cup‚ they will complete a treble. If Guardiola is successful‚ he will be the first manager in English history to win the title in the same season as Alex Ferguson.
Guardiola's reaction to Ronaldo's outburstCristiano Ronaldo apologised for his outburst after his side's 1-0 loss to Everton on Sunday. The Portuguese midfielder appeared to slam a mobile phone from an Everton supporter's hand as he walked back to the away dressing room. After the game‚ he appeared to be apologetic‚ and the Manchester United manager tweeted that he was disappointed. Guardiola's response to Cristiano Ronaldo's outburst at the Manchester City and Liverpool game is expected to be controversial but the manager did not say why he had to apologize to Ronaldo. Guardiola might have been trying to emphasise the fact that Manchester City have seven games left in the league and can't afford to risk losing any more points than Liverpool. Following the outburst at Manchester City and Liverpool‚ Ronaldo received a warning from the Football Association for his 'aggressive' reaction to a decision to award a penalty to Tottenham. Guardiola was also involved in a discussion with fourth official Martin Atkinson and a further warning is expected if he is found guilty of another offence during the season. Pep Guardiola disagrees with the requirement of 10 points to win the Premier League. He said that both Liverpool and Manchester City have set unheard-of standards. During his time as manager of Manchester City‚ Guardiola has a passion for golf. However‚ he said he would rather watch Tiger Woods' dramatic comeback. Tiger Woods made his dramatic comeback to golf at Augusta in the Masters‚ and after a life-threatening car crash 14 months ago‚ he has been in contention to win the tournament again.
Guardiola's rivalry with KloppJurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola are the two most successful managers in the Premier League. Both have spent billions of pounds on their respective teams and are both in title races. Both have worked hard to maintain depth in their squads by spending in the transfer market‚ and Guardiola has even admitted that spending money is the key to success in Manchester. But do they really share a common rivalry? Guardiola has won eight of their 22 games against Klopp‚ and the two have drawn nine. Klopp has also won four games. The two have a strong rivalry‚ but Klopp is undoubtedly the better manager. Both men have been in the dugouts at different clubs since 2012. The manager's words and actions do matter‚ and are often what make a rivalry worse or more attractive. Antagonising quotes‚ touchline spats‚ and arguments over transfer deals can all fuel the rivalry. Luckily‚ Klopp and Guardiola are not guilty of any of these shady tactics. Both managers have spoken highly of each other and have tried to keep their relationship cordial. Pep Guardiola has had plenty of experience with both Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool. They are considered the modern equivalent of Jurgen Klopp. While the two rivals have not had a post-match food fight‚ they have had their fair share of tiffs in the past. Both players have also clashed with each other in the canteen after a game‚ but nothing as violent as that.
