Man City attacker Gabriel: Last week was just blip


"I said it was a goal when the ball was passed to Leroy Sane. But Mateu Lahoz is a special guy, he likes to be different, he likes to be special", he said.

In other news, a report has claimed that Guardiola will look to take his spending to stratospheric levels in the summer transfer window, with the coach looking to layout an eye-watering £600m on new talents.

"I was expecting something like that but I liked the reaction immediately after that".

Sadio Mane powered his way into the and when he fell under the challenge of Ederson, Salah kept his cool to clip into an empty net.

The victory was Liverpool's second in a week over the Premier League champions-elect and their third over Guardiola's side - who have lost just seven matches in all competitions - this season.

City have endured a tricky few days, being beaten 3-0 by Liverpool in their Champions League quarter-final first-leg and then letting a two-goal lead slip against rivals Manchester United.

Gabriel Jesus had stirred hopes of an improbable comeback when he struck inside two minutes but a dominant first-half display in which Bernardo Silva hit the post and Leroy Sane saw a goal wrongly disallowed failed to yield further reward.

"From a personal point of view I don't want Real Madrid in the semi-finals".

"We had many draws and they took us out of the first place".

Roy Hodgson has turned Crystal Palace around once this season, and he will need to do so again to lift the Eagles to safety.

"When you concede one goal and score five against Manchester City I think we should respect Liverpool more".

"They could've scored two or three goals in the first half". I was not overly happy at half-time to be honest.
