It’s gone a bit Basil Fawlty for angry Pep Guardiola.

CCity manager’s day to forget means he will be under more pressure to win Champions League To watch Pep Guardiola on the touchline at one point during a frenetic afternoon yesterday was to think of Basil Fawlty thrashing his car with a branch. Smacking his arm, waving fingers at the fourth official, howling into the sky above Anfield, Pep Guardiola was a man looking for something — anything — on which to take out his boiling frustrations. He may as well have picked up a corner flag and attacked the VAR monitor for all the good it would do him.

Guardiola wanted something to blame, but was it not quite obvious? Field a defence as wobbly as, well, Fawlty’s misfiring Austin 1100 against one of the world’s most potent counterattacking sides and the outcome was surely not that surprising.
