Champions League: Liverpool beat City 5-1 on aggregate

Champions League: Liverpool beat City 5-1 on aggregate

Liverpool took the lead in the first leg with a goal that came from Mohamed Salah's offside run, while City were denied what might have been a crucial second goal in the return leg.

"You will not become a victor overnight - it happens from time to time - but it's a coincidence and a little bit of luck".

Liverpool survived a Manchester City onslaught to reach the Champions League semi-finals on a controversial night at the Etihad Stadium that saw Pep Guardiola sent off.

Heading into the semi-finals the Reds have bagged 33 goals across 10 matches (one every 27 minutes) which incredibly is the most by any English side in competition history (1992/93 season-present).

"I said the ball came from Milner, he said: 'Ah from Milner, the pass?' 'Yes from Milner and when it comes from Milner it is not offside'".

City made the flawless start as they tried to reel in a 3-0 deficit from the first leg when Raheem Sterling set up Gabriel Jesus for a cool finish after only two minutes - but they never recovered from a contentious incident just before half-time that saw manager Pep Guardiola sent off.

"I said [to the referee] it was a goal, Milner passed it to Leroy and I said it was a goal and that's why he sent me off".

Roberto Firmino made it 2-1 for Liverpool with 13 minutes remaining. The goal was wrongly disallowed for offside by referee Antonio Mateu Lahoz and his officials.

The Serie A side lost their prized asset Salah to Liverpool in the summer, with the Egypt global moving to Anfield in a £34 million deal, and he has since gone on to score 39 goals in 44 appearances this season. "It was the difference between going in at half-time 1-0 and 2-0".

But the five-time European champions head into the semi-finals with the best defensive record of any team left in the competition.

"Again, we created this kind of mood for us, this attitude to fight for the result".

City's European exit capped a wretched week, which also saw them blow the chance to clinch the Premier League title against bitter rivals Manchester United but Guardiola called on his players to deliver one last push.

"I would say the exception has been the 10 months - winning, winning, winning - that is exceptional. You have to analyse game by game".
