UEFA charges Pep Guardiola, Liverpool after Champions League clash

Dejan Lovren- 5

Second half goals from Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino ensured Liverpool's progression to the last four, which was well deserved after several players put in fine displays to carry the Reds over the line.

Overcoming a 3-0 deficit from the first leg was always going to be a task for City but they started the game in the best possible fashion when Gabriel Jesus scored one just after 117 seconds.

Trailing 3-0 from the first-leg City manager Pep Guardiola had said his team needed to produce a "perfect game" if they were to achieve a famous comeback and for 45 minutes they were not far off that level.

It was the latest Champions League failure by City manager Pep Guardiola, who won the competition twice with Barcelona — in 2009 and '11 — but hasn't reached the final since in five season with Bayern Munich and City.

"But it's hard to talk about a goal, and whether it's allowed or not". Lahoz, the same referee that denied Sergio Aguero a stone-wall penalty against Monaco last season, had enough of the back-talk and sent him to the stands.

"I said it was goal, I didn't insult him", he said, according to the Daily Telegraph. "Congratulations to Liverpool but, in the right moment, we missed the right decisions".

"Over the course of eleven months you have ups and downs", Guardiola said after Tuesday's loss to Liverpool.

Sadio Mane, Liverpool: He had a hand in setting up Salah's tying goal, and effectively linked up with the Egyptian throughout the contest.

Despite detailing a long-running feud with referee Antonio Mateu Lahoz, Guardiola insisted he had no complaints about the overall result and will now turn his attention to securing the Premier League title.

It looked set to be a long night as Gabriel Jesus stroked home after just two minutes, but Jurgen Klopp's side held firm for the rest of the half before opening up after the break. "I have to analyse what we've done in 10 months and I think it's quite good".

It was the first goal Liverpool conceded in 362 minutes in Champions League play and not since Matchday 5 against Sevilla had the Reds' goal been breached.

"Then we had a goal disallowed for Sane and that was hard to take because it affected the game a little bit". I play for the team, I try to score each game for the team, that's the most important thing for me'. "We knew we had to get the ball better and we defended better in the second half".
