Pep Guardiola congratulates Liverpool for victory against Manchester City

Pep Guardiola has congratulated Liverpool for their 4-3 victory against Manchester City on Sunday and describes the result as proof that the Premier League title race is not finished.

The Citizens had not previously lost a league game since April but were put to the sword against Jurgen Klopp’s side at Anfield.

Liverpool boasted a three-goal lead over Man City at one point and, despite a late fightback from the visitors, managed to hold on for all three points on Merseyside.

“Congratulations to Liverpool for the victory,” Guardiola told Sky Sports News. “The game was in our hands at 1-1 but our finishing was not good and then it went suddenly to 4-1. You have to be stable when you concede a goal and we were not solid enough. You have to live this kind of situation in the season.

“The reality is we lose the game, we have a week to recover and prepare for the Newcastle game. All credit to the opponent, we know how difficult it is against a Jurgen Klopp team, so aggressive, at Anfield too. We did a good performance apart from a few minutes.

“After the second goal they scored two in a few minutes and it is hard to recover from that. In every press conference for the last few months you have said that the Premier League us done and I always said no. It is still to be done. We will defend our position game by game.”
