Salah and Firmino break Liverpool European goals record

Guardiola was sent to the stands at half-time of City's 2-1 defeat at the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday, which sealed a 5-1 aggregate loss, for complaining about a disallowed goal.

PEP GUARDIOLA was dealt another blow yesterday when he was hit with two Uefa charges relating to his red card in Manchester City's Champions League defeat to Liverpool.

"We mature constantly", Klopp said after the game in which Liverpool became the first team to beat a Guardiola-managed side three times in one season.

"But it's hard to talk about a goal, and whether it's allowed or not". But I know him [Lahoz] from Spain, so I could imagine that.

Liverpool's win saw them reach the competition's semi-finals for the first time since 2008, when they lost to eventual runners-up Chelsea. "When it come from Milner, it's not offside", Guardiola said. And off one of them, Salah collected a loose ball, rounded goalkeeper Ederson Moraes and deftly chipped in the equalizer in the 56th for his 39th goal of the season.

Manager Pep Guardiola let his feelings be known in no uncertain terms when speaking to Spanish referee Antonio Mateu Lahoz after the halftime whistle.

Nebenzya, accused the United States and its allies of reckless Middle East warmongering by threatening Syria with military force. Corbyn said Britain should be trying to bring about a ceasefire "not taking instructions from Washington".

While the Reds and Roma have booked their spots in the semi-finals, all eyes will be on Wednesday night's quarter-final second leg fixtures when Real Madrid host Juventus, and Bayern Munich host Sevilla. I don't care who is in (the draw), we are there and we deserved it and so far we fought for each opportunity to get it and then used it.

"It was [a nervy first half]".

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain shot over on a rare Liverpool attack before the visitors survived another scare just before the interval as Sane had a goal chalked off. He was deemed offside despite being in a legal position when the ball fell to him after bouncing off James Milner, rather than a City player.

"If we go to 2-0 against that side it is a little bit different", Guardiola added.

The boss is keen to build on the team's domestic success as well as ensure a more successful challenge in Europe next season and, according to the Daily Telegraph, he will again look to bolster his squad in the summer transfer window. Nonetheless, Manchester City had the flawless start scoring within the first two minutes and could (should) have been awarded a second goal before half-time.

"It's all good but it's not that you can enjoy it completely, but I don't care who is in [the competition]".
