Manchester City suffered a heavy defeat in the Champions League quarter-final, losing 3-0 to Liverpool in the first leg at Anfield.

Mohamed Salah, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Sadio Mane scored the goals that mean City have a mountain to climb in next week’s second leg.

And after the game, Pep Guardiola said his players need to move on quickly and focus on the game against Manchester United that could see City win the title this weekend. 

"We didn't create clear chances because they defended deep," he said. "We needed one goal but we couldn’t score it.

"It is what it is, we have to accept it. Now in two days we have United at home, then two days after we have Liverpool. We’ll see what happens.

"We didn't create clear chances because they defended deep. We needed one goal but we couldn’t score it."
