Pep Guardiola's Bizarre Claim After Liverpool Draw

     City conceded six goals to Monaco over two legs

Sergio Aguero's 69th-minute goal rescued a point for Manchester City in a 1-1 draw against Liverpool on Sunday in a gripping Premier League game between two teams battling for Champions League qualification.

Across his stellar managerial career, Pep Guardiola has won the Champions League twice, captured 19 other major trophies and coached perhaps the greatest club team in Barcelona's class of 2009-11.

James Milner tucked away the penalty to give the visitors the lead but Sergio Aguero levelled with just over 20 minutes remaining to ensure City salvaged a point in the gripping match at Etihad Stadium.

Defeats to relegation-threatened Hull, Leicester and Swansea in the Premier League since the turn of the year, coupled with their FA Cup elimination at the hands of Championship side Wolves, has left many Liverpool supporters dreading those kinds of fixtures.

A penalty was always likely in this game - played on a slick surface after pre-match rain - because of the last-ditch defending on show from both teams.

Sergio Aguero brought City level with 21 minutes remaining, but neither side could muster a victor and both had to settle for a point.

"It is one of the days I'm most proud of in my career".

Milner, a former City player who had been jeered by sections of the home crowd in the first half, sent Willy Caballero the wrong way from the spot for his seventh successful penalty of the season.

Lallana was seven yards out when, seven minutes from time, Roberto Firmino laid the ball back to the England midfielder with goal at his mercy. We are fighting every single game to be in the four who qualify for the Champions League.

"There is one outstanding side this year and they will be champions probably".

Jurgen Klopp is aware that he needs to significantly bolster his Liverpool squad in the summer months in order to prevent another mid-season collapse like the one suffered this campaign.

Adam Lallana miskicked in front of goal for Liverpool while Kevin De Bruyne hit the post and Aguero blazed over for City.
