Guardiola: A special day for United, which is a pity

The Liverpool team bus is greeted with cheers flares and songs as it heads towards Anfield

Pep Guardiola has defended his system at Manchester City, arguing they have demonstrated their ability to compete with the best this season. "They show me many good things in the season", said the Spaniard, whose team can clinch the Premier League with a win over Manchester United on Saturday.

"I don't agree with him, he played good, he did what we spoke (about)", he added.

Anfield has witnessed many memorable European nights over the years and this will take its place among the most spectacular as a simply devastating, first-half display was crowned with goals from Mohamed Salah, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Sadio Mane. "I tell them we are going to try guys".

"When we were on the bus I was reading about how the reception was going to be", he explained to ESPN in Brazil.

"Contratulations to United. Now we will try, if we are courageous enough, to stand up again and focus on Tuesday", said City manager Pep Guardiola. "We needed one goal and we couldn't score it", he said. When this happens it's so complicated to win the games.

The Red Devils second-half comeback stunned the home support into complete silence as a much-changed City starting XI were punished for the lack of incisiveness, after dominating the first-half of the game holding a 2-0 lead at the break.

"They're nearly qualified but we have 90 minutes".

"Yeah, it can happen", the City manager said when asked if what happened in the derby could be imprinted on the memory against Liverpool. "We have training this afternoon and we will see Sergio Aguero's physical condition".

"When you play against Liverpool, United or in Europe when you have your momentums you have to close the door and we didn't close it".

In ordinary circumstances, Guardiola would not even entertain the idea of deploying anything other than his strongest team to secure his first league title in England, and keep City on course for a record points haul. We have one eye on Tuesday though.

Guardiola will know that an injury to the likes of Kevin De Bruyne or David Silva would seriously harm their chances of a Champions League turnaround. "We are a young team and a team to create sometimes, not to defend". You have to defend a little better in the second half, but it is football but.
