Klopp: Absolutely proud, we played an incredible game in the 1st half

With a 3-2 win against Manchester City at Wembley, Liverpool averted a late scare to keep their hopes of completing a historic quadruple alive.

If last Sunday's

Premier League

match between the teams was a classic, this semi-final was practically settled in the opening 45 minutes, when Liverpool took a 3-0 lead thanks to a combination of ruthless finishing and Manchester City errors. 


, who won the Carabao Cup, are now in the FA Cup final, as well as the last four of the

Champions League

while sitting second in the Premier League.

Liverpool's victory maintains them on track to make history since no English club has ever won the league, both domestic cup championships, and European champion in the same season. 

This was a triumph based on Klopp's team's ferocity and ruthlessness in the first half, which proved too much for City, whose remodeled side looked off the pace and unable to cope with Klopp's side's force. 

The delighted German tactician told BBC Sport after the game:

"3-0 against City would feel weird, 3-2 is a fair result.

"Absolutely proud, incredible - I think the first half was one of the best we ever played. We did all the right stuff, we scored in the right moments, we played an incredible game in the first half, I really loved each second of it.

"Quadruple? It's unlikely but let's go for it.

Klopp addressed the disturbance of the minute's silence:

“We never thought this is Man City. Some people didn’t understand the situation and that’s not nice. It felt really wrong at that moment, but it’s nothing to do with Man City."

 Are Liverpool and Manchester City enemies?

“I don’t have enemies in football. Man City, since I was here, is the best team in this league. So if you want to win something, you have to beat them..."

Liverpool, on the other hand, deserves to reach the final and will be a dangerous opponent for either



Crystal Palace

once the second semi-final winner is determined.
