Manchester City and Liverpool will clash on April 9 in what could be a decider for the Premier League title.
Pep Guardiola opined after the loss to Tottenham that it was a good game and gave plaudits to Harry Kane.
“It was a good game,” said Guardiola “We tried through many sides, especially down the left. It is very difficult, they defend so narrow.
“Tottenham have a lot of quality, they give the ball to Harry Kane. They are really good upfront.
“In the first half they have the goal and no more. In the second half they have one attack with Harry Kane at the start and they score.
“We try to score, but we conceded the goal in extra time.”Copyright © 2022 Completesports.com All rights reserved. The information contained in Completesports.com may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed without the prior written authority of Completesports.com.
