Man City’s Bernardo Silva and Guardiola disappointed at Anfield result.

Updated: Oct 18, 2022

Guardiola and Bernardo Silva were disappointed with Man City’s first loss of the 2022-23 Premier League season.

Pep Guardiola vented his frustration at how his Manchester City side lost the enthralling match against Liverpool at Anfield.

The Cityzens were favourites heading into the clash on Merseyside but eventually lost the game to Jurgen Klopp’s Reds, thanks to Mohamed Salah’s goal in the 76th minute.

The result means City still sit in the second spot (same points as Spurs) but are now four points behind Premier League leaders Arsenal, who beat Leeds 1-0 at Elland Road.

Guardiola also complained about how he was treated by the Liverpool fans after they threw objects at him during the game.

‘The mistake cost us.’

"This is Anfield, every time you come here lately unfortunately this is Anfield,” Guardiola told BC Radio 5 Live.

"We played a really good game but this is a game where there are really fine margins and the mistakes are punished. We made a mistake and we cannot concede and that's why we lost the game.

"We played to beat Liverpool today, definitely we played for that. After 1-0 the crowd shouted but we shouted more on the pitch.

"The referee said play on, played on, played on, there were a thousand million fouls like this and this one is because we scored a goal. So they disallowed because we scored a goal, otherwise it would not have been disallowed.

"We lost because we make a mistake but this is Anfield. The crowd tried [to throw coins/objects] but they didn't touch me. Maybe next time they will be better."

‘A feeling of frustration.’

Man City midfield maestro Bernardo Silva added: "We wanted to get the three points, we got out with zero, so yeah, very frustrating.

"It was a physical game, we knew it. It always is here [Anfield]. We were ready for it.

"We need to watch the game to see what didn't work and what we could do better. But very frustrating and very disappointing for not getting a win here.

"It's a feeling of frustration. We gave our best, there's no doubt about that."
