Manchester City were forced to wait another week to wrap up the league title after squandering a two-goal lead at the Etihad Stadium, but the Spaniard felt that his team's performance was satisfactory.
"If that's so I will have to recognise that I'm not good enough or the way we want to play (means we are) not able to do that - but I don't think so because of what we've done this season".
By the time Gundogan traipsed off after 57 minutes the game having virtually passed him by to be replaced by Sterling, City was losing 3-0 and its players were struggling to clear their minds after Liverpool's devastating first-half display. "I tell them we are going to try guys".
"That's why it will be so important that in the bad moments, more are going to happen, bad moments will happen next Tuesday (as well), that they feel our supporters are there".
"Contratulations to United. Now we will try, if we are courageous enough, to stand up again and focus on Tuesday", said City manager Pep Guardiola. "Unfortunately, today they managed to score the goals, we didn't".
Guardiola and City will be champions and they must put the disappointment of defeat in context by Tuesday when they confront their task against Jurgen Klopp'sLiverpool.
"They found their game, found their actions, they have spirit, but we did everything to win the game".
The Red Devils second-half comeback stunned the home support into complete silence as a much-changed City starting XI were punished for the lack of incisiveness, after dominating the first-half of the game holding a 2-0 lead at the break.
"We are close to being champions", he said in his press conference on Friday.
British media, Mirror, report that Guardiola, who has just over 12 months left on his current deal signed a new one that will see him stay at the club until 2020. "When you are good in both boxes, you have a good chance to get results", Guardiola said, in reference to the Citizens poor finishing in the first-half. It was the first time he had played an away knockout tie in the Champions League.
"Of course we are sad for ourselves, for our fans - but we still have 13 points advantage and goal difference. OK, we lost, I'm not right, you are right".
