"That is exceptional", said the man whose team still sit 13 points clear at the Premier League summit, needing two wins from their remaining six to be sure of glory, and with the EFL Cup secured.

A Liverpool fan has gone viral after he correctly predicted the events in the club's Champions League match at Manchester City.

It has been a difficult week for City, with their two losses to Liverpool coming either side of a derby defeat by Manchester United.

"We are now in the semis and first of all we should enjoy the moment because it's obviously a while ago that Liverpool were in the semis".

The game represented a rare instance when City faltered and paid heavily for their mistakes, however it remains to be seen whether Liverpool can replicate Wednesday night's magic in the second leg at the Etihad.

The following season, a penalty shoot-out loss to Klopp's Borussia Dortmund in the semi-finals of the DFB-Pokal preceded four defeats in the next five games.

"I would say the exception is going 10 months, just losing the odd game, and winning, winning, winning".

In contrast, Jurgen Klopp's side was more clinical in their approach, and their dominance became complete in the 20th minute when Milner swept the ball inside to Oxlade-Chamberlain, who shot an absolute screamer from 20 yards out, which Edison had absolutely no chance of stopping.

"In this competition the teams are so equal and the influence of refereeing decisions is so important", said the Spaniard afterwards, denying he had insulted the referee.

When those are the standards you set yourself, uncomfortable questions follow if the big games go awry with any kind of frequency.

Gabriel Jesus admitted Manchester City's Champions League exit was tough to take.

"They had a fantastic season but they are human beings, thank God".

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk gave the ball away and Fernandinho played a superb pass to Raheem Sterling on the right who slipped the ball across to Jesus to slot home. He fired back in one spiky but not ill-tempered exchange on Tuesday.

The United loss denied them the chance to wrap up the Premier League title with a record six games to spare and they may now need another two victories to secure the crown. I was expecting something like that but I liked the reaction immediately after that.

But the tricky point unquestionably arrives for Guardiola in April, with domestic matters in hand but not enough in the tank for the final European push. Together, these provided for a thrilling clash at Anfield that left City supporters visibly shocked at the end of the 90 minutes.
