Adam Lallana's miss versus Manchester City cost one punter a remarkable sum

20 March, 2017, 19:04 | Author: Alberta Rodriguez

It was a match displaying numerous best qualities of the Premier League and was packed with incidents, controversies and missed chances as both sides focused on attack.

The FC crew reflect on Man City's frantic 1-1 draw with Liverpool and analyse Pep Guardiola's post-match comments.

But Aguero's strike kept City a point above their rivals, who have played a game more, and provided a moment of solace after their mid-week Champions League elimination at Monaco's hands. "I'm very happy that he scored again". "To get a point at Manchester City for (any) team in the world is absolutely OK".

"We left everything on the pitch and we had chances until the last minute".

"It's another "nearly" for us and we have had too many "nearlys" on the road", said Dyche. "After being [knocked] out of the Champions League and playing against Liverpool, one of the best teams, how we played means a lot to me - so that is why I am happy with my players". Both teams were unlucky not to win and particularly fortunate not to lose. "But you have to consider the situation we played this game, how we played against them, a top team", he said.

"Obviously he's one of the best - if not the best - player, technical-wise, I have ever worked with", Klopp said of Lallana, whose technique deserted him completely in that miss.

It was one of a number of tough decisions for referee Michael Oliver, who turned down a number of penalty appeals for both sides and Caballero had sympathy for the official.

"It was hard. In the end we were better and deserved to win", Pochettino said.

De Bruyne then hit a post and Adam Lallana missed badly for Liverpool in an exciting finish.

"However, as far as Liverpool were concerned I thought Sadio Mane was probably the pick of the bunch".

'Thirteen players have a contract and maybe you have to pay them to go there, to pay their salaries, and [then] pay £40m or £50m for every player, we are going to spend £500m or £600m, it's impossible'. Fernandinho, who played at right back for City, spent 50 percent of his time in Liverpool's half in the opening 15 minutes.

Klopp said: "We are still in a battle and our next game is not only a derby, it is a really important game".

But he said he took as much pleasure from the way City responded to the "sadness" of their midweek Champions League exit in Monaco.

Having spent millions in the summer, trying to restore Manchester City to the summit of English football, their frequent displays of inefficiency suggest they are quite a way away from their target.
