Lovren reveals Liverpool's regret as Reds target Man City's title next season

Liverpool are on cloud nine after reaching the Champions League semi-finals for the first time in a decade, with a wonderful spirit being created on and off the pitch.

City went on to lose the overall tie 5-1 on aggregate, but the former FC Barcelona coach feels it could have been a totally different outcome if the officiating were at a higher standard.

Speaking to BT Sport after the match, the City manager spoke witheringly of Mateu Lahoz's officiating. He wanted me and Virg (Virgil van Dijk) to be more compact and push the team up, but it was quite hard to push up when City had the ball.

Salah proved to be the difference for LIverpool again. It's different when Gabriel Jesus's goal at Anfield is offside.

"Last season we were not able to get the feeling that we were ready to compete in Europe", Guardiola said before Saturday's Premier League derby loss to Manchester United and after Wednesday's 3-0 first-leg defeat at Liverpool.

Asked about Salah's clinching strike just after half-time, Klopp said: "We were already through the whirlwind".

This was a game that put Liverpool to the test. City were always going to come out flying but falling behind in the second minute only added pressure as the home side attacked with a blistering pace.

With the title still to be wrapped up, Guardiola called on his players to make one last push at the end of what had been a fabulous campaign until the last seven days.

"Like last season in Monaco when it was a clear penalty with the same referee, these kind of actions when the teams are so equal, the impact is so big", the City boss added.

Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren, meanwhile, believes they can rival City for domestic honours next season following their elimination of the runaway Premier League leaders.

We have to recover mentally.

"This team is ready to fight with all the teams but the other teams are so good, it is hard - a mountain - but we can compete, especially at home".

"Over two legs, I really feel we deserve".

Liverpool has the chance to become the first English team to win the UEFA Champions League since Roberto Di Matteo's Chelsea prevailed in a riveting final against Bayern Munich in 2012.
