Jurgen Klopp: Liverpool's Champions League clash with Man City only at half

  • Klopp: Emre Can's season could be over

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has admitted his side must play "the ideal game" to have a chance of overturning Liverpool's 3-0 advantage in the Champions League.

A spot in the Champions League semifinals, with Liverpool looking like the heavy favorite following the convincing 3-0 win over City in last week's first leg.

"The first 20 minutes are going to be so important in deciding the outcome and if City get an early goal, their confidence will soar and I think they will go on and get the other two". Many times we have created a lot of chances in a short period. My team is extraordinary, it's not comparable to many others.

All three European behemoths have better odds than Liverpool to win the biggest prize in domestic soccer this season, but you should seriously consider backing Jurgen Klopp's side. "He is a fantastic team manager, player manager as well, and everyone is working hard together", said the Holland captain. For the next step maybe we need more time.

"I knew before they can concede goals and we can concede goals and lose", he said n Monday. We are happy to handle it.

"We have 90 minutes plus extra time and what we have shown this year - even in the last game - we can create a lot of chances in the last few minutes". But the way that my players have played all season showed has what they can do. We are only in the lead. City thumped Liverpool 5-0 in their Premier League match at Etihad Stadium on 9 September.

3-Alarm Fire Breaks Out At Trump Tower In New York
His apartment, 50C, which is a little more than ten floors below President Trump's penthouse, was valued at $2.5 million. The person who died lived in the apartment that caught fire. "This is a very hard fire, as you can imagine".

After two chastening defeats in a week, City have a mountain to climb; but if Guardiola can engineer a comeback, it will go down as one of the more remarkable achievements in a stellar campaign. Missiles were thrown at at City's bus last week, with the damage bad enough to remove the vehicle from commission for the trip home.

However, with City having to push forward to recover the three-goal deficit, this will allow Liverpool to counter attack at will, which could result in an abundance of goals from both sides.

There will, though, be an increased security presence.

Manchester City conceded six goals in the past two games during a pair of intense short spells and Guardiola said they have to be ready to deal with adversity.

There is a clip of Pep Guardiola focusing intently on re-arranging the mobile phones and tape recorders on his desk prior to his news conference ahead of Manchester City's weekend derby encounter with Manchester United.
