Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp and Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola expressed their feelings after the game.

Liverpool and Manchester City were tied 1-1 in the 28th round of the 2023/24 English Premier League (PL) at Anfield, located in Liverpool, England, on the 11th (Korea time).

It was a fierce match. The first goal was scored by Manchester City. John Stones scored a goal in the 23rd minute of the first half when Kevin De Bruyne kicked a low kick correctly at a corner. The first half ended with Manchester City holding the lead.

Liverpool chased. In the 2nd minute of the second half, Ederson Moraes committed a foul while Darwin Núñez was receiving a pass after penetrating into the gate. The referee declared a penalty kick. Alexis McAllister, the kicker, calmly returned the game to square one. No additional points were scored and the game ended 1-1.

After the game, Liverpool manager Klopp said, “It’s amazing. In the first 10 minutes, we were in a bit of a hurry. The second half was our best game against Manchester City. Of course, Manchester City hit the goalpost, but we should have scored two or three more goals.”

Klopp was satisfied with Liverpool’s performance. He said, “It was an outstanding game. For the first time today, we 100% proved we are where we need to be. I’ve never seen Manchester City players struggle like they do today. We were great.” 퀸알바

Manchester City manager Guardiola said, “The momentum was good in the first half and there were many chances. We had a hard time after giving away the penalty. It was a good game for the audience.”

Guardiola said the away game would be difficult, but insisted that the Manchester City home game would not be easy either. “I know very well how difficult Anfield is. Etihad is also difficult. Liverpool has not won in eight years there,” he said.

He continued, “We’ve proven to be amazing competitors to each other. I prefer to win but they’ve proven the quality they’ve had over the years. It was a good game for everyone.”

It is unlikely that the two coaches will face off for the time being. Klopp announced that he would leave the team after the end of this season. Energy depletion is the main reason. There is still a possibility of a showdown in the English FA Cup, but there is no longer a scheduled schedule.
