Jurgen Klopp Says Liverpool 'Can Beat Anyone' in Champions League Semis

Pep Guardiola

I would say we didn't have any luck with injuries again and City didn't have injuries all season.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp apologised immediately after the game for the behaviour of the supporters and acknowledged that their behaviour was unacceptable.

However, after a verbal kick up the backside from Lovren and some tactical input from Klopp, the second half proved to be a totally different affair with Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino scoring to secure a 2-1 win and 5-1 aggregate victory.

"It was all positive, there was nothing negative, but I needed to remind the guys that we had 50 minutes to be in the semi-finals of the Champions League and we needed to give more".

"I said he was wrong", said Guardiola when asked about his dismissal.

The referee was unmoved, though, and with the Dutchman out of position, Fernandinho's through ball found Sterling and his low cross was swept home by Jesus.Salah had been an injury doubt after limping off in the first leg, but Liverpool were unable to spring the Egyptian free in the first 45 minutes as City peppered the visitors' box with crosses without finding the final touch.

"To beat them in both games should be a confidence-builder for us".

Pittsburgh (9-3) just won two of three against the Cubs, including a 6-1 win Thursday that featured four homers. Pirates right fielder Gregory Polanco gloved the ball in right field and Peters scored the first run.

With a few smart signings this summer, many will be tipping Liverpool FC to be one of the main challengers for the Premier League title next season.

"It was weird because we didn't catch up well from the beginning". There are six games to go and we must focus on that, finish the season with a Premier League trophy.

According to the Daily Mail, the £20million-rated Brazilian - who can play at right-back, centre-half and also in a holding midfield role - is one of Guardiola's top targets ahead of the summer window. Twice a Champions League victor with Barcelona, he isn't sure he can reach the final next season.

Attentions will now inevitably turn towards Friday's Champions League semi-final draw as the Reds wait to find out their opponents for the last four.

"I want to say big congratulations to Liverpool for going through and I hope they can defend English football in the semi-finals".

"We managed to score the goal very early in the second minute and that was very important", Jesus told reporters. "They had chances but that shows a lot about how we came out in the second half".

"It literally is the way I thought the game would pan out".
