That prompted an accusation in the pro-Liverpool "Anfield Wrap" podcast that the pitch had been left long in order to slow down Liverpool's rapid counter-attacking game, something Guardiola strongly denies. "I never did [ask], if they want to play quick, we want to play quicker". Sometimes it happens when you have many problems, maybe I would take a decision to play with some others.

"We have to respect them with the rules".

However, youngster Phil Foden made it 2-0 for Man City two minutes before the break with a scuffed effort inside the box against the run of play.

"We are going to play the next game like a final, knowing we will go through in the second most important competition in England, but I don't think about it too much".

Unsurprisingly, the radio calls from Chicago and Philadelphia saw the outcome completely different. Unsurprisingly, social media was awash with reaction to the game's dramatic finish.

The 30th-ranked offense by DVOA upon Jackson and Haley's exit, the Browns eventually finished the season ranked 17th. ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports the team will promote offensive coordinator Freddie Kitchens to the role.

It is the sort of match Brahim Diaz would have started but - having rejected a new deal from City - the 19-year-old signed for Real Madrid this week in a deal which could be worth up to £22million.

Meanwhile, Guardiola refused to be drawn on Liverpool's exit from the FA Cup with the Premier League leaders fielding a weakened team.

Guardiola added that he wasn't disappointed to lose Diaz or Jadon Sancho. We always try to put water on, but it's not necessary here. "We wish him all the best because he's a nice guy".
