Man city vs Liverpool: How it happened (watch highlight)


Liverpool has reduced Man city's impressive start to nothing, as they secured a 2-1 win at Ethiad making it a 5-1 aggregate victory in the Champions League last eight.
Man city boss, Pep Guardiola was sent off as Manchester City were knocked out of the Champions League by Liverpool following a 2-1 quarter-final second-leg loss, which gave the Reds a 5-1 aggregate victory.

Jurgen Klopp’s side looked so victorious as they book their place in the semi-finals, with Mohamed Salah’s record-breaking goal cancelling out Gabriel Jesus’ early opener before Roberto Firmino struck the winner at the Etihad Stadium.

Having defeated city 3-0 at the first leg at Anfield and fresh from Saturday’s unexpected defeat to Manchester United, City made a bright start in their quest for a famous comeback, with Jesus netting it quickly in the second minute of the first half.

The home side totally dominated the first half but were denied a second as Bernardo Silva hit the post and Leroy Sane saw a goal harshly ruled out for offside.
Guardiola became furious with referee Antonio Mateu Lahoz’s decisions and then raced onto the pitch at half-time to confront the official thus making him ordered to watch the remaining part of the match from the stands.

Salah brought down City's hope with a 56 minutes goal which cancelled Jesus early strike and making him become the first Liverpool player to score eight times in a single Champions League or European Cup season, also Firmino utilized a Kyle Walker error to seal their passage to the last four and match his team-mate’s record tally.

However City made efforts as Bernardo Silva striked but was denied by the left-hand post. Liverpool keeper, Loris Karius had little to do despite City’s dominance, but escaped blame for a poor punch when Sane was flagged offside after finishing from close range, even though the ball had bounced into his path off James Milner.

Guardiola ran onto the pitch disagreeing with Lahoz after no stoppage time was played, making the Spanish officials to send the City boss to the stands, and matters got worse for the home side after the restart.
