Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola sits in the stands during the team's game against Liverpool on Tuesday.

"I was polite, I was correct, but Mateu Lahoz is a special guy, he likes to be different, he likes to be special".

At half-time Guardiola walked on to the field to complain to Antonio Mateu Lahoz but the referee sent the manager to the stands.

"I don't have regrets", Pep said.

Their march to the semi-finals has left Liverpool FC priced at 10/3 to lift the trophy for the first time since 2005. If you could say something about us in the past, on an average day we lose cheap goals.

Bernardo Silva saw a deflected effort spin just wide and then rattled the post with a deflected long-range strike."The first half was so good", added Guardiola.

"When the teams are so equal the impact of these decisions is so big", lamented Guardiola.

Sebastian Vettel: No intention to hold Verstappen back
Not for the first time this year, Kimi Raikkonen appeared to be showing his illustrious Ferrari teammate a clean pair of heels. Valtteri Bottas was second for Mercedes with fellow-Finn Kimi Raikkonen third for Ferrari.

Yet, Guardiola's outburst is the latest in a highly charged season that has also seen him reprimanded by the English Football Association for wearing a yellow ribbon in protest at the imprisonment of political activists who seek independence for his native Catalonia.

Having won the first-leg 3-0, Jurgen Klopp's side completed a 5-1 aggregate win to reach the semi-finals for the first time in 10 years. Guardiola also pointed to Salah's opener last week, which he claimed was offside, as another crucial decision that caused City to be eliminated, as well as two other key decisions he believed were wrong in that match.

The Citizens faced a mountainous task of overturning the three-goal deficit set by Liverpool in the first leg of the Champions League quarter final tie.

With Liverpool FC so close to the final, and facing the Reds at Anfield a daunting prospect for any opponent, Liverpool FC are clearly one of the firm favourites to actually win the competition this season.

Of guiding Liverpool to the semi-finals for the first time since 2008 Jürgen Klopp said: "It will be hard, 200 per cent".

"We created chances, but of course it's not easy because they had ten players behind". I really thought it was a joke.
