Man City boss Pep Guardiola deserves credit after doing the right thing for Liverpool – John Aldridge



I think all the ingredients are there on Thursday night for Manchester City against Liverpool to be a really great game.

No doubt about it, City will try and get at us to make a statement about their intentions for next season.

They will really be hurting after losing the league title they’d held for two years and of course having got badly turned over at Anfield earlier in the season.


They will be wanting to show that they are not that far away from us and I’m sure they’ll have a right go at us.  I can see it being a real ding-dong affair, maybe a bit like the Champions League quarter-final second leg a couple of seasons ago when they were three down from the first match.

First half they really threw the kitchen sink at us and gave us a real peppering, and I think it could be a bit like that early on.

They are still an outstanding side but don’t forget Liverpool are better and the fact the title is decided might hopefully mean both sides just go for it and attack each other so it could be a really fantastic spectacle.

Fair play to Pep Guardiola as well for confirming City will give the newly-crowned champions a guard of honour before the game.

It’s the right thing to do and you want to see people rise above the pettiness that can sometimes come into the game.


Whether it’s City, United, Chelsea, Everton or whoever, it’s about sportsmanship at the end of the day and I’m sure we would have done the same if we’d had to, like we did at Stamford Bridge a few years back.

It hurt us then and it will hurt City on Thursday, although from Guardiola’s point of view he will be hoping it might motivate his players even more to go out and show what they are made of.

Football is very tribal now but it’s important sportsmanship is seen publicly in the game, especially in such a high-profile match. 

City have to applaud what Liverpool have done over the course of the season and show they’re not bitter and twisted.
