After a terrible first half, Phil Foden thought he had put City ahead in the 53rd minute. Only for his effort to be ruled out by VAR.

Pep Guardiola was enraged by the judgment even before referee. Anthony Taylor had finished studying the pitch-side monitor, whirling around to confront Liverpool fans in the stands.

Following then, the City manager claimed that Liverpool fans reacted.

“They won’t get me next time,” Guardiola remarked attempted but failed to capture me.” They had them (coins) on the coach before, but not this time.”

Erling Haaland was penalized for a foul on Fabinho in the build-up to Foden’s strike from a tight angle, a decision Pep Guardiola was still unhappy with after the game.

“This is Anfield,” Pep Guardiola added. “The referee told my assistant and Juergen before the game, ‘Today I won’t make fouls,’ and the entire game was play on, play on, play on, except for the goal we scored.”

“The crowd and everything, we’ve been coming here for many years.” We lost because we made a mistake against one of the finest teams in the world. The margins are razor thin.”

Guardiola says coins were thrown at him in Liverpool loss

Klopp was sent to the stands after becoming dissatisfied with the officials late in the second half, believing match-winner Mohamed Salah was fouled right in front of him by Bernardo Silva.

Despite this, he was overjoyed to get a victory that can jump-start his team’s stuttering season by ending City’s unbeaten streak.

“The red card was my fault; I went over the top in that moment,” Klopp admitted. “That’s not acceptable, but as a minor point, how can you not flag that as a foul?”

“That (the outcome) felt extremely fantastic.” On a typical day, you should not even try to play against City; you must play within your capabilities. That is exactly what we did. The boys gave an outstanding performance.”

Liverpool later issued a statement denouncing some shouts from City fans during the game.

“We are profoundly unhappy to hear ugly shouts about football stadium catastrophes from the visiting section during today’s game at Anfield.” “The concourse in the away section was also vandalized with graffiti of a similar sort,” they stated.

“We are aware of the impact such behavior has on families, survivors, and everyone else involved in such disasters.”

“We are working with the relevant authorities and will also engage with Manchester City to guarantee that these chants are completely eliminated from football.”
