Guardiola singles out two Man City players after 1-1 draw with Liverpool


Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has hailed Manuel Akanji and Rodri following their 1-1 draw with Liverpool on Saturday.

Erling Haaland’s 27th-minute strike gave the Premier League champions the lead.

And although City looked set to record a 24th win from 24 home games in all competitions, Trent Alexander-Arnold’s late equaliser ensured the points were shared.

“To concede just two chances against that team.

“The way we made the build-up, the way that Manuel Akanji and Rodri played in those ridiculous spaces, it was really, really good. How we defended the set pieces, everything was a really high standard.

“It was really good. They are happy, we are little less happy. This is football. I am really pleased. So proud of my team,” Guardiola said.
