Match report


Goodnight from me

That's all from us here tonight after a frustrating afternoon at Anfield

A first defeat of the season to Liverpool means we end the weekend four points off top spot in the Premier League.

We'll have reaction across the Club's channels including the view from manager Pep Guardiola.

With City having no midweek game, the focus now switches to next Saturday when we entertain Brighton at the Etihad for a 3pm kick-off.

Make sure you join us then but in the meantime, as always, many thanks for your company...


'Hopefully in the future we can learn'

More from Pep Guardiola:

"We did everything, we played really well and created chances. Most of the time we were really good but we made a mistake. They were so clinical and so good.

"We have to make a perfect game and we didn't, we made a mistake, hopefully in the future we can learn but teams like this, [competing] in the Champions League, it is so tight and they punish you."


'A game where there are really fine margins'

Pep Guardiola's verdict:

"We played a really good game but this is a game where there are really fine margins and the mistakes are punished. We made a mistake and we cannot concede and that's why we lost the game.

"We played to beat Liverpool today, definitely we played for that. After 1-0 the crowd shouted but we shouted more on the pitch.

"The referee said played on, played on, played on, there were a thousand million fouls like this and this one is because we scored a goal. So they disallowed because we scored a goal, otherwise it would not have been disallowed.

"We lost because we make a mistake but this is Anfield."


A good day for our women's team...


We'll be back

Our official full-time verdict...


Just one of those days...


As you were...

We remain in second place in the table but Arsenal now four points clear on 27 points from 10 games.

We have 23 from 10 along with Spurs, but have a much better goal difference.
