Man City boss Pep Guardiola: “What a game. That is the reason the last year, Man City and Liverpool were always there because we try to play in this way. Unfortunately, we couldn’t win – but we didn’t lose. That’s why the Premier League is the best [that it could go either way]. It was great, really great.”
