Manchester City coach Mikel Arteta claims that Liverpool’s Anfield stadium is the only place that has given him the feeling of “of being stuck”.

City just pipped the Reds to the Premier League title on the final day of the season by one point after an amazing battle.

When asked if he was shocked by Liverpool‘s title challenge, Arteta told Marca: “No, because it is very difficult to beat them. Also, in my playing career, Anfield was the only ground where in which I had the feeling of ‘pájara’, of being stuck.

“It happened to me with Arsenal, and we conceded five… You say: ‘I do not know what’s going on, stop the game, please, because I do not know where I am’.

“It’s hard to explain, but it never happened to me anywhere other than Anfield.

“Barça surprise me by the form of some of their goals, but at Anfield you can concede five without knowing.

“Neither in Spain nor in Greece or Germany did I have that feeling. Not even in Old Trafford.”
