Guardiola: Man City deserve greater title credit after derby defeat

Liverpool Team average- 7.36

Despite the 3-0 defeat by Liverpool in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final at Anfield yesterday morning (Singapore time), he said that his team "did really well".

All they need, he stressed, is some convincing.

"Liverpool played like they always do at Anfield - the first 25 minutes of the second half we were good".

A little sad for fans and players, we will try to be in a good mood next Tuesday.

"I believe a lot in this team", he said after Wednesday's match.

It is India's 5th medal so far in Commonwealth Games 2018 , and all of them have come in weightlifting so far. Sanjita clinched gold medal in the 48 kg category at the 2014 Commonwealth Games at Glasgow as well.

Man City still lead the Premier League by 13 points, but their path to the title is not all plain sailing, as their next six games include Spurs, and five teams battling for survival at the bottom of the table. "There are 90 minutes more".

"We left sad for the game that we did, it's complicated. We are going to pick a team to win the game, there is no doubt about that". "Now it is tough", he added.

Mohamed Salah opened the scoring in the 12th minute before Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain netted a stunner from range. Second half, we defended very deep, gave them no shot on target, very concentrated, but when we have the ball we have to play more football.

"And, of course, now it is not done, so the people say, "you're going to win".

"Contratulations to United. Now we will try, if we are fearless enough, to stand up again and focus on Tuesday", said City manager Pep Guardiola.

Bahrain Grand Prix qualifying results: Sebastian Vettel on pole, Lewis Hamilton disaster
New Zealand driver Brendon Hartley complained about damage to his left front wing and soon found out why: He hit a bird. His team-mate Valtteri Bottas was in similar trouble and ended up sixth quickest, 0.09secs slower than Hamilton.

"We know that playing here is hard".

Guardiola dropped an in-form Raheem Sterling to the bench in favour of sticking Ilkay Gundogan on the wing in an attempt to apparently negate Andy Robertson from bombarding forward up the pitch along with being able to control even more possession for City in midfield. We arrived with a huge personality.

"In football anything can happen, it's the first time we've lost two games in a row this season and now we have to recover and try again, go back to the basics and win games. At 2-0 the game is never over, especially here in this league".

"My motivation is to finish second", said the Portuguese, who confirmed that defenders Phil Jones and Daley Blind have returned to training, leaving goalkeeper Sergio Romero as the only player on the sidelines.

"We could not create chances because they defended deep but we were there for the last pass".
