Mo Salah's 76th-minute goal delivered Jurgen Klopp's side all three points.

Things could have been so different had Phil Foden's effort was allowed to stand, however.

He put the ball in the back of the net in the 53rd minute - but following a VAR check referee Anthony Taylor adjudged Erling Haaland to have fouled Liverpool midfielder Fabinho.

And Guardiola was frustrated at the decision as City’’s unbeaten league record this season came to an end.

City boss Guardiola told beIN Sport: "It's Anfield. It's Anfield. Do you know how many fouls there were in the game? Do you know how many? A lot. It's one more.

"With the other ones it's play on, play on and play on but this one, not play on. I know the reason why, we scored a goal. That's why.

"Listen, it's done. We lost because we made a mistake. Tight games and the decisions - tight games are different. We could not score, we had the chances, played with incredible personality from the back and making transitions because of their quality and that's all."
