Pep Guardiola appeared to have gotten over his earlier tantrum during Liverpool’s 1-0 victory over Manchester City in the league after being spotted sharing a few gracious words with goalscorer Mo Salah.
The Spaniard’s comment of ‘this is Anfield’ when responding to questions over Phil Foden’s disallowed opener, as reported in a tweet by the Echo’s Ian Doyle.

The Merseysiders responded with their most resilient display of the season to weather multiple attacks from the visitors before finally finding a goal of their own with the help of a tremendous Alisson Becker pass.
It’s a moment that will not quickly be forgotten given the circumstances we found ourselves in going into the tie – a whole 13 points behind the incumbent champions.
Though we can’t deny that Anfield, of course, is a powerful force when in full swing, the notion that it in any way influenced Anthony Taylor’s decision-making is ludicrous.
Footage shared from the game clearly illustrates that Erling Haaland fouled Fabinho in the buildup and we’d certainly advise the ex-Bayern Munich head coach to take a long look at it before blaming the result on the stadium.
