Guardiola: Premier League the toughest to win

The Liverpool team bus is greeted with cheers flares and songs as it heads towards Anfield

Manchester City were knocked out by Monaco last season in the quarter-finals and they are on the verge of another last eight exit after losing 3-0 at Anfield to Liverpool in the first leg of their tie.

The 3-0 defeat to Liverpool is certainly not leaving Manchester City players' minds so easily.

Guardiola met with City's chiefs when he took his players to the Middle East for four days of warm weather training last month.

"Yesterday you (the media) explain about that, but I am new here for the Champions League".

"Normally when the police know that is going to happen it is to try and avoid it happening".

Guardiola won two Champions Leagues as Barcelona coach, but despite all his domestic success in Germany, his Bayern Munich were side were knocked out in the semi-finals three times in a row. Just like City's play at Anfield on Wednesday when Guardiola's tactics were pulled apart, not for the first time at this level in recent years.

"The bus is destroyed". I'm so proud of Manchester City people for what they've done.

"Of course is not liverpool, it is the people, but hopefully it doesn't happen again".

Liverpool swiftly issued a statement of their own pledging to identify the culprits.

By then, City had already turned the title race into a lengthy coronation and it would be fitting if they complete their journey with one more record-breaking victory, even though their probable Champions League exit threatens to cast a shadow over the celebrations. "We were very active in all parts of the game, ideal in the spaces, very lively closing the gaps", he said, before praising his defence. "The behaviour of a number of individuals was completely unacceptable and the club will cooperate fully with the authorities to identify those responsible". There is something special about Liverpool's Anfield on European nights as it transforms into a swirling cauldron of noise capable of inspiring its hosts and intimidating their foes as Manchester City discovered yesterday.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is Pep Guardiola's kryptonite. We tried everything to prevent a situation like that. I'd say you're right, it's impossible to do it without money.

"They found their game and their actions".

"Thankfully no one on the bus was injured, but injuries were caused to two of our officers when projectiles were thrown towards the bus", said match commander superintendent Paul White in a statement. The loss to Liverpool at Anfield in the league didn't particularly mean much in the grand scheme of things for City, but it should have been a lesson for him for this game and again, his tactical blunder will see his team go out early in Europe again.
