Liverpool did something no team has done before vs Manchester City

Liverpool dealt an unwanted career first to Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola with their 2-1 victory in last night’s Champions League quarter-final.

The Reds won 5-1 on aggregate to progress to the semi-finals of Europe’s top club competition, and have certainly proven a major bogey team for City this season.

These two victories in Europe followed a 4-3 win over Guardiola’s side at Anfield in the Premier League, meaning Liverpool have actually beaten the runaway league leaders three times this season.

Remarkably, that’s never actually happened to Guardiola before in a career where things have mostly gone his way at super-clubs like Barcelona, Bayern Munich, and now City.

The Premier League title should still be a formality despite defeat to Manchester United at the weekend, but it is a bit of a worry that at one of the most important stages of the season City have now lost three in a row.

That in itself is a rarity for Guardiola, whose worst run in his career is four losses on the spin, and one of those was a penalty shoot-out.

In short – well played, Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp!
