Manchester City’s manager Pep Guardiola described his club’s draw with the Reds as one of his special moments in his life. “The battling draw with Liverpool is one of the most special days of my life,” he said.
The Citizens welcomed Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday as the two English sides played to a 1-1 all draw in a game of missed opportunities. James Milner converted a penalty kick on the 48th minute mark handing the visitors a lead following an awkward tackle in the box on Roberto Firminho by Gael Clichy.
Liverpool went into the break leading at the fully packed Etihad as the Citizens were desperate for a win bearing in mind they played to a barren draw with Stoke City at home last week.
Following a series of missed chances, City’s luck finally stood as Sergio Aguero leveled the scores on the 69th minute thanks to a pin point cross from Kevin De-Bruine.
Guardiola lavished praised on his side for coming from behind to secure a point against Jurgen Klopp’s side. The two times Champions League winner was totally contented with the draw against Jurgen Klopp’s guided side terming the results one of his life’s special moments.
“It’s one of the most special days of my life,Why? Because we lived through a tough two days after being out of the Champions League with our mood at what happened in Monaco.We had a tough few days, everyone was sad, then playing against a team like Liverpool, who had all week to prepare for the game, they fought until the last minute and put everything out on the pitch,” he said.
Manchester City will take on pressure piled Arsenal on 2nd April while Liverpool will travel to Goodison Park to face Everton in the mersyside derby on the same day.
