  1. Good night

    And with that, we bid you farewell.

    Catch up with Phil McNulty's match report here and it's just 90 minutes until the badminton starts at the Commonwealth Games.


  2. Praise from former Liverpool greats

    Liverpool 3-0 Man City

  3. 'A complete team performance'

    The plan worked for Liverpool. If a City player got passed a Liverpool player, another was there to cover, they worked in pairs. It was a complete team performance, That first half was the best football, certainly the best counterattacking football they have played against top opposition under Jurgen Klopp.

    And second half, defensively one of their best performances this season.

  4. 'I did not expect that from Liverpool'

    Liverpool 3-0 Man City

    Manchester City

    More from Pep Guardiola on the damage caused to Manchester City's bus before the game: "Yesterday you explained, I am new here, that it is going to happen. Normally when the police know it is going to happen, they tried to avoid it from happening.

    "So I did not expect that from the Liverpool side, their people. One year ago something happened in Dortmund so we come here to play football and I don't understand this kind of situation. The bus is destroyed but I did not expect a prestigious club like Liverpool doing this kind of thing.

    "It is not Liverpool, it is the people, but hopefully it does not happen again."

    Mollie: Massive praise to the entire Liverpool team tonight and Klopp for his tactics. Think a special mention has to go to Trent Alexander Arnold though. Only 19 years old and kept Sane quiet throughout.

    Fergus: Trent Alexander Arnold had Leroy Sane in his pocket all night. Defining game for the right back.

    Matt: Trent Alexander-Arnold had a solid game.

  6. 'Own goals not lucky'

    Barcelona 4-1 Roma

    Barcelona captain Gerard Pique: "It’s not just luck that we get own goals in our favour. Things happen for a reason. I think that if these goals go our way it’s because we press high, we push up in attack - the ball is in the opposition area more than usual in other teams’ matches."

  7. 'Overstepped the line'

    Liverpool 3-0 Man City



    Former LIverpool captain Steven Gerrard on BT Sport: "There’s no need for it. Scenes like this sour the night for the club. It is nothing that the club want to be associated with.

    "We want a great atmosphere and we want to make it hostile for the opposition but certain individuals have overstepped the line and it's bang out of order."

  8. 'We believe'

    Liverpool 3-0 Man City

    Manchester City

    Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola: "We showed up from the begining, we started with enormous personality but they scored a goal. We continued to play but they scored two more goals. It is tough. They had 10-15 minutes in the first half when they were better.

    "In the second half we tried everything but we couldn't find a goal. The first two goals, we had control of the game but they scored. I don't have too many regrets or complaints. Nobody believes but we have another game.

    "They had two attacks and scored two goals. That was tough but for the rest of the game we were so, so good. We had to score a goal but they defended more.

    "We have to accept it and now we have United at home and then Liverpool at home. We see what happens. Of couse it is difficult but we believe."

  9. 'Gabriel Jesus offered nothing'

    Liverpool 3-0 Man City

    Robbie Savage

    Ex-Leicester City & Wales midfielder on BBC Radio 5 live

    The first goal will be crucial at the Etihad. Aguero was a huge miss, Gabriel Jesus offered nothing. They were putting balls into the box but Dejan Lovren and Virgil van Dijk in defence were immense.

  10. 'Only half-time'

    Liverpool 3-0 Man City


    Jurgen Klopp

    Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp speaking to BT Sport: "The result is not what we expected but we needed to play more football in the second half. They did not have a lot of chances but we didn't play much football ourselves. It is only half-time. 3-0 up, good.

    "First half was brilliant. It was how football should look. We knew about the quality of City but also about our quality as well. If we could control the game better against a team like Man City and not give the ball away we would be closer to them in the league.

    "We defended the passes really good. But I wanted us to play more football. But I am not angry it is all good.

    "We lose one player to injury (Mo Salah) and another - the captain (Jordan Henderson) - to a yellow card so it does not feel good. Mo said he feels good but we will have to see about that.

    "If we want to see games like this them the Premier League have to think about the fixtures. It should be something good (the game against Everton) and not cause problems. We have to find players now for what a lot of people say is the biggest game of the season. I do not feel good about this right now. If I don't play my best XI against Everton then we know what happens."

    Dean: This is the only thing that Guardiola is missing in his locker. He can't adapt when his team is losing in big games. His plan is A and only A. He needs to look at Sir Alex Ferguson & Rafa Benitez at what they did in the big European games. City were poor!

    Simon: Fraudiola is embarrassing himself in Europe again. If you gave a proper manager like Sean Dyche 200 million to invest in his defence he'd walk the Champions League.

  13. 'Nobody believes'

    Stewart: Salah offside, Sane onside. It would have changed the tie, disappointing from the officials.

    Jon: With VAR it would have been 2-1.

    Anon: First goal offside, City's goal not offside. 2-1 would of made a interesting second leg

    Jurgen Klopp also says that it is not fair that his side have to face Everton at lunchtime on Saturday. He is not happy with the Premier League.

  16. 'A minority of fans causing trouble'

    Liverpool bus

    It is always a minority of fans causing trouble, as it was tonight.

    Barring flares, the Liverpool fans were impeccable, the atmosphere was amazing, the City fans too who tried to sing until the end.

    There is always a minority of idiots as there was outside before the game

    Damien: Man City, we know how to lose but we also know how to win. It will be a very different return tie and Liverpool will experience a very different game at the Etihad.

    Ash: People saying Man City won't win 5-0 at the Etihad obviously must have missed the league match where they beat us 5-0...

    Ilyas: Yet again Klopp has shown how much he has improved Liverpool. Those that seem to jump on the bandwagon that he's like Rodgers and his team - need to hang their head in shame

  18. Post update

    Jurgen Klopp says that he wanted his side to play more football in the second half!

    More reaction to come.
