Progression was only secured after the VAR ruled out a stoppage-time goal by City attacker Raheem Sterling, who thought he had sent Pep Guardiola's men into the semis.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino said, "We didn't sleep too much [on Wednesday night] but the happiness allows you to feel strong and with energy, and of course now we're thinking about the game on Saturday". Both players fighting for the ball inside the box and Michael Oliver was in a fantastic position to see what was going on there.

"I understand the situation on the City bench; from top of the world down, disappointed, that is unbelievable, the emotion we live last night was incredible".

"We've just got to try and give a good account of ourselves for the fans that are going because it's a sell-out - and it probably could've sold out twice more".

For instance, it is understood certain players would earn less should the club fail to qualify for the Champions League next season. We have to accept it.

However, while this may seem like a progressive move from the Premier League et al.it's worth noting that they had very little choice but to move the fixtures.

Both teams clash again in the league this time and Mourinho insists Tottenham can not afford to lose focus despite winning Wednesday's showdown.

"I think everyone expected them to go ahead and take the lead in the tie there and then".

In contrast, Liverpool must play vital games in the Premier League run in before their own semi-final with Barcelona.

"I don't want to see my players saying it doesn't matter".

Guardiola dismissed criticism over his approach against Spurs, which ended with Spurs triumphing on away goals despite a 4-3 loss in Wednesday's thriller.

He said: "Both teams will attack".

City had two more penalty appeals early in the second half.

"Without them impossible to fight for title or win these kind of games". A retrospective three-game ban handed out to star midfielder Andre Gomes only added to the disappointment for the Merseysider's.
