Man of the match: Kevin De Bruyne
Man City manager Pep Guardiola: “It was a good game. I will have to review the game but I have a feeling we missed an opportunity. A feeling that we left them alive. Heads up, I said to the team after the game, I don’t want one second of sadness. It was a good game for our fans, Liverpool fans, fans in the UK and around the world. We dignified the Premier League. We created a lot against them, except for maybe the last final action. It was an incredible performance, I am so proud of my team. We know now that we have to win every game. It will be difficult but it will be difficult for them too.”
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp: “Nothing changed, really. You play 95 minutes of incredibly intense football and nothing changed. If we win today, we are two points up, that changes nothing. We have to be nearly perfect to beat this team in a game and over a season too. I think that is probably right. We knew it in January. We had to win 18 games. If there was one we could draw it was today.”
