But there had been a big clue about what might be coming and City's fragility - a 4-3 loss to Liverpool in the league on January 14. We have to recover mentally for the six games remaining. No-one talks about winning ugly anymore, about getting stuck in, putting yourself about. They had a fantastic season, an outstanding season, but they are human beings, thank God.

Also responsible for a brace in that memorable victory last September, Leroy Sane represents a more lucrative anytime option at 6/4 (2.50).

Speaking after the win, he said: 'It woke us up that early.

It is no coincidence that all those humiliations took place in the wake of his Nou Camp departure and, crucially, without the services of Lionel Messi to call upon in times of trouble.

They lead Seville 2-1 heading into tonight's tie at the Allianz Areana. "You have to analyse game by game". By what measure are City failing?

Guardiola was sent to the stands for the second half for arguing with referee Antonio Mateu Lahoz during halftime. Hopefully they can defend English football in the semi-finals. Every result is analysed to death and importance attached. "Good luck for the final stages of UCL, see you next year".

The Reds' awe inspiring performance sent bookies into a frenzy, considering that the betting interest in the game was pretty much split between the two clubs, especially on account of City's stellar performance in the Premier League.

Read on for a transcript of his answers. And with some justification.

Liverpool were already facing four UEFA charges over the setting off of fireworks, throwing of objects, acts of damage and crowd disturbances after City's team bus was attacked prior to the first-leg on 5 April. But his actions mean we will never know for sure. So of course they have a chance.

United came in two down. It will be interesting to see how we will deal with that, 100 per cent.

Total perfection is demanded of seemingly everyone other than himself. It should have been two and could have been more.

In the second half, Liverpool really came out of their defensive shell and began to attack. If you don't score the second and the third then it's not easy again. On each occasion they lost match they might have won by landslides. "But Mateu Lahoz is a special guy".

For all of the success and scintillating football he's brought to the Etihad Stadium this season, Pep Guardiola was heavily criticized for leaving Raheem Sterling out of the starting line-up at Anfield and sacrificed Ilkay Gündogan for the return leg as he reinstated Sterling to the starting line-up. Seventy-eight minutes, the most incredible penalty I ever saw in my life, and Martin Atkinson didn't want to whistle.
