Pep Guardiola pleased with Manchester City's response at end of challenging week

Pep Guardiola won 21 trophies in seven years while in charge of Barcelona and Bayern Munich but said his Manchester City side's 1-1 draw with Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday was one of his happiest moments in management.

Liverpool looked poised to leapfrog City into third place after James Milner silenced the boos from fans of his former club to give the visitors the lead with a penalty early in the second half.

The England worldwide squandered a glorious opportunity to win the game for Liverpool when he inexplicably missed the ball under no pressure and with the goal gaping after good work between Roberto Firmino and Georginio Wijnaldum.

"Both Liverpool and Manchester City went for it, both teams were questionable at the back and both teams spurned all but one of the many, many chances that fell to them". Out of the Champions League, playing against Liverpool, how we played with character, especially after these last few days, means so much to me. That's how it is. The problem is I expect things like this from us and I can not run around after a draw against Man City. But, of course it's a success.

Sergio Aguero missed a sitter late on and the City boss, whose side are 12 points behind leaders Chelsea, still faces a battle to secure qualification for the Champions League. "The rest fight with all they have for the Champions League".

"The next game is against Everton, they have come from behind [in the table] and it is quite impressive, so it is not only a derby, it's another very important game", Klopp said.

Fourth-placed Liverpool is four points ahead of fifth-placed Manchester United, having played two games more. "After trailing 4-0, logically they had more possibilities to get eliminated than to advance".

As is the way in the Premier League, with the obvious exception of Chelsea, City's blessing was that they are far from being the only ones who have weaknesses for others to take advantage of. On this occasion it took two substitutions for Guardiola to address this situation - Bacary Sagna for Toure and Fernando for Leroy Sane - but the move that matters most will surely be the one that comes in the transfer market when City sign a player capable of protecting their defence. It was also another really good generation at Bayern Munich, there was not a second team in Germany, we tried to be it but it didn't happen.
