Manchester City vs Liverpool Live Champions League quarter final

Liverpool's Dutch defender Virgil van Dijk and Liverpool's Croatian defender Dejan Lovren react following

Pep Guardiola has urged his Manchester City players to go out and play the "perfect" game against Liverpool as they look to overturn a 3-0 deficit from the first leg and reach the UEFA Champions League semifinal. "The chances we receive, we have to defend well", said Guardiola, who saw his side suffer another defeat in last weekend's Manchester derby.

That's according to Jermaine Jenas, who is backing City to pull off a sensational quarter-final comeback if they can score an early goal at the Etihad Stadium tonight (7.45pm). When he was asked how he can make City more clinical in terms of closing out games he said they need to continue creating chances.

"We can not forget it is a simple game - just focus on every single minute". We will have to think about how many goals we will score. Then after that the second one...

"But we are going to see, it's a good test. Football is a challenge like life, we are happy to handle it". "This is a new one".

"We are sad and annoyed, of course, because we have had two tough defeats in the two most important games of the season", he told reporters. "We'll see the momentum, try to keep it longer and then we'll see", he added.

Guardiola has to put out a side that fits the task they face, which is why I am expecting him to go for it with the type of team he sets up, right from the back.




"I know we want to judge the result but the performances? He is a fantastic team manager, player manager as well, and everyone is working hard together", van Dijk said. I am so delighted.

"We feel we are in a great moment at the moment and I think we can make it hard for any team in the world".

That is probably the biggest worry for Guardiola, because he can not afford for any of his players to have any doubts. And with regards to their display on Saturday, you have to say they should have led by four or five goals at half time had they taken their chances. United did really well to create that but they were helped by the absence of Sergio Aguero leading City's attack at the top end of the pitch. Salah has 38 goals in all competitions in his first season at Liverpool.

First-half goals from Mohamed Salah, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Sadio Mane left City trailing by three goals before half-time, with Guardiola's side unable to force an away goal despite dominating large periods of the second half.

"They know exactly what they have to do, and the shackles will be off".
