Superb Liverpool take big first-leg lead against Man City

Superb Liverpool take big first-leg lead against Man City”

It was Oxlade-Chamberlain's first goal since the long-range effort he scored in the 4-3 Premier League win over City in January.

We have to work.

Liverpool and manager Jurgen Klopp issued apologies to their opponent, including Pep Guardiola, and offered support moving forward.

He said: "Thank you to Jurgen [Klopp] for his words".

"For Liverpool FC, I have to say sorry about that - it's the opposite of what we wanted".

Pep Guardiola believes his team are capable of turning around the three-goal deficit suffered in defeat to Liverpool in the Champions League quarter-final first leg.

"They did not have a lot of chances but we didn't play much football ourselves".

However, Liverpool fans were waiting for their team's opponents and let off flares and smoke bombs along Anfield Road and Arkles Lane in the vicinity of the stadium for nearly an hour before City's arrival.

Three first-half goals at Anfield left the Premier League's runaway leaders reeling and although they regained their composure in the second half, their failure to score an away goal could prove to be decisive.

"Normally when the police know that is going to happen it is to try and avoid it happening".

"Nothing happen, the bus is destroyed". Few teams could overturn a 3-0 deficit against Liverpool but Guardiola's side is certainly one of them.

Despite Liverpool cutting through City easily time and again throughout the opening half, Guardiola suggested his team were actually not too bad, aside from a small period when his players "lost a bit of control".

The atmosphere was equally electric inside the stadium for Liverpool's first Champions League quarter-final for nine years.

"Thankfully no one on the bus was injured, but injuries were caused to two of our officers when projectiles were thrown towards the bus", said match commander superintendent Paul White in a statement.

Guardiola's side have been in stunning form for the large majority of the season, but he lamented a poor 20-minute period in the first-half that has likely cost them a shot at European glory.

A goal for the visitors would have given them real hope of overturning the deficit but for all their possession they found themselves continually frustrated by the Liverpool defence and the hosts celebrated a huge result at the final whistle. "They had a great start and Man City, we have seen it previous, Liverpool have the players who can hurt Man City, particularly on the counter attack".
