Manchester City 1, Liverpool 2 (agg. 1-5): Man of the Match

However City were unable to add to their lead, mainly because of the officials awful mistake in disallowing Leroy Sane's goal, and in the second half Liverpool contained the hosts and scored twice from their few chances, Mo Salah levelling on the night and Roberto Firmino giving the Reds a 5-1 aggregate lead.

Roberto Firmino made it 2-1 for Liverpool with 13 minutes remaining.

He spent the second-half watching his team's night crumble from the stands as Liverpool came through with a 2-1 win on the night and a 5-1 victory on aggregate.

It was City's third successive defeat, with officiating at the centre of Saturday's 3-2 Premier League derby loss to Manchester City and last week's first-leg clash against Liverpool at Anfield, and Poll said the English leaders should feel aggrieved.

Many teams have big decisions go against them, and Manchester City have had their fair share this week, but it is how sides react to those decisions that really define them. "I said it was a goal when the ball was passed to Leroy Sane".

About 10 minutes in, Sadio Mane found his way into the box and got dispossessed by Ederson, but Mohamed Salah was there to pounce on the loose ball and get Liverpool's all-important away goal.

In the space of one week Manchester City have gone from being touted as one of the Premier League's greatest ever teams to having each and every one of their weaknesses exploited ruthlessly in successive games.


"City anxious me in the second half last night". The assistant referee thought the ball reached the winger from Sterling, although it actually came off Liverpool's James Milner. "We defended well, it's not our best game but we deserved it at the end", he added.

"You can imagine Pep (Guardiola) was not happy with the (disallowed goal) but we've scored five goals against Man City and only conceded one".

At the Etihad Stadium, on Tuesday, City needed to overturn a three-goal deficit against a Liverpool side that had rattled them at Anfield the previous Wednesday.

City applied relentless pressure on Loris Karius' goal in the first half as they strove to reduce their deficit further, but the visitors dug deep to get to the interval still 3-1 up on aggregate.

Come May 26 in Kiev he may, at last, be able to down a beer or three should Liverpool fulfil his personal ambition and restore the term European giants to their name.

In an Instagram message he wrote: "Champions League - could you guys start using the VAR system next season?".
