Liverpool players celebrate after Roberto Firmino scored the match-winner in their 2-1 victory over Manchester City.

"Again, we created this kind of mood for us, this attitude to fight for the result. Against Manchester City we did numbers that are usually not possible". Because of that, the second half is too long - 50 minutes or longer.

Reds boss Klopp said: "I really think they are the best team in the world at the moment but I knew we could beat them. We had come through the whirlwind". "The goal from Gabriel Jesus in Anfield was a goal, not offside".

The Anfield faithful still celebrate one of the great football comebacks - the night they won the 2005 Champions League final in Istanbul on penalties against AC Milan after trailing 3-0 to the Italians at half-time. "That's why he sent me off", Guardiola told a news conference.

"Not to disrespect Roma". We completely deserve to be in the semi-finals.

Guardiola voiced his criticism of Lahoz just last week, only to discover his compatriot will be in charge for City's decisive quarter-final second-leg tie against Liverpool tonight. Seventy-eight minutes, the most incredible penalty I ever saw in my life, and Martin Atkinson didn't want to whistle.

It's been a tough week for Pep Guardiola and his Premier League leaders.

Striker Sergio Aguero might return to Manchester City's lineup after missing the last month due to a knee injury.

"The first half we did absolutely everything. That's why I have to try to analyse it game by game".

It has to be said Liverpool were not entirely happy with some of his decisions either.

Mateu Lahoz wrongly ruled the goal out for offside, sparking City and, in particular, Guardiola's anger.

"Since I am here (unruly behavior) has never happened in this stadium", said Guardiola. "I didn't insult him". He is now just four away from reaching a career-best season tally and says adapting to Guardiola's tactics has greatly contributed to his current form.

City got off to a good start on three minute as Jesus slotted the ball past Loris Karius after being set up by Raheem Sterling.

But the City manager felt it could have been a different outcome if decisions from the officials had gone his team's way in both matches. "These kind of games, this competition the impact is so big".

The last time Liverpool got to the semi-final of the Champions League was in the 2007/2008 season.

"City took all the risks they could take, we needed a bit of luck and a disciplined defending formation".

"We can not forget it is a simple game - just focus on every single minute. That's the key, it's what you have to do against these sorts of teams".
