Guardiola criticises referee in Champions League defeat to Liverpool

Liverpool must defend a 3-0 first-leg win

But the strike was wrongly ruled out for offside and Liverpool went on to win thanks to goals from Salah and Roberto Firmino.

In a first-half full of adversity, the players dug deep for one another, and they excelled as a unit the more the match progressed.

He added: "If you go in 2-0 at half-time it's a little bit different and when [the ball] came off Milner, it can't be offside".

Goals from Salah in the 56th minute and Firmino 13 minutes from fulltime ensured that the visitors clinched their third win against City this season.

"In these kind of games, in these competitions, the impact is so big".

Speaking to BT Sport after the match, the City manager spoke witheringly of Mateu Lahoz's officiating.

At the other end, scoring has not been a problem for City, who have 90 goals from 32 Premier League games so far, but it is odd that such an expensively assembled squad only includes two out-and-out central strikers in Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero.

Guardiola has history with Lahoz after clashing with him when City played Monaco last season and Napoli.

Protests continued after the half-time whistle with Guardiola entering the field and exchanging words with Lahoz. "Whenever people see the things, he will decide the opposite", Guardiola said.

City's bad week after also blowing the chance to seal the Premier League title against local rivals Manchester United at the weekend was rounded off 13 minutes from time when Otamendi was caught in possession and Firmino slotted in off the far post.

"Liverpool have shown how good they are by beating City three times this season", Waddle told the BBC.

He added: "Liverpool can not match the experience of battle-hardened Champions League campaigners like Real and Bayern".

The coach concluded by congratulating Liverpool hoping they represent England well in the semi-finals since they're the only English team still competing.

We have to recover mentally.

"Our 10-month winning spell is exceptional". You can not imagine how much intensity you feel before a game like this.

The last two Champions League semi-finalists will be decided on Wednesday night.

Fired-up by that breakthrough and with the crowd roaring them on, City were first to every ball, applying constant pressure on the Liverpool defence while Juergen Klopp's side were unable to earn some respite.
