|Pep Guardiola hinted at what was to come at a thunderous Anfield when he admitted Manchester City were the "perfect" opponents for Liverpool in the Champions League quarter-finals.
It was not an attempt at reverse psychology by Guardiola but an acknowledgement that if one team's style is built to destroy City's smooth rhythms and potency it is Liverpool's high-octane approach under Jurgen Klopp.
And so it proved as all Guardiola's fears were realised and lightning struck twice for the Premier League champions elect in the first leg.
The only defeat on their relentless march to the title, a 4-3 loss at Anfield in January, was followed by an even more emphatic beating on an atmospheric night of pure theatre that leaves Liverpool with a commanding three-goal advantage to take to Etihad Stadium next Tuesday.
Liverpool and their fans celebrated wildly and understandably so at the final whistle - but the darker Byron Jones Authentic Jersey side on this night must not be ignored.
City's team coach was badly damaged as it was 'welcomed' by Ryan Carpenter Jersey Liverpool fans. It was unusable for the post-match return journey after coming under attack from bottles, cans and pyrotechnics before the game.
Liverpool swiftly apologised "unreservedly" and Merseyside Police - who condemned the attack as "appalling" - began an investigation. But what was arguably most disturbing of all was this so-called greeting had been flagged up on social media in advance of the game and http://www.broncosofficialfootball.com/Demaryius_Thomas_Jersey_Broncos drawn concern from City, yet was still seemingly impossible to stop.

It is also impossible to measure what sort of impact it had on City's players - but this was an unsavoury and potentially dangerous incident which must somehow be avoided in future.
Guardiola, who was asked about this potential incident at his pre-match media briefing, said: "Yesterday you explained - and I am new here - that it is going to Oliver Ekman-Larsson Authentic Jersey happen. Normally when http://www.officialbluejaysproshop.com/Ja_Happ_Jersey the police know it is going to happen they try to avoid it from happening.
"I did not expect that from the Liverpool side, their people. One year ago something happened in Dortmund so we come here to play football and I don't understand this kind of situation."The bus is destroyed but I did not expect a prestigious club like Liverpool doing this sort of thing. It is not Liverpool, it is the people, but hopefully it does not happen again."
It was the start of a grim and uncomfortable night for Guardiola and City at the hands of a manager and team that has the weaponry to become their most troublesome adversaries. wholesale jerseys wholesale jerseys wholesale jerseys wholesale jerseys wholesale jerseys
