'I have an idea' - Guardiola plots new defensive strategy for Liverpool clash

Klopp: Emre Can's season could be over

Runaway Premier League leaders City could line up with the most expensive defence ever assembled for their rescue mission, but they may regret letting Van Dijk get away if they fail in their mammoth task to overturn a 3-0 first-leg deficit.

"To go through you have to make nearly the flawless game", Guardiola said.

"We have to make nearly the ideal game because the result is tough".

"But we can not forget it is a simple game - just focus on every single minute". Of course, we don't have to think about how many goals you have to score. It is a joy to be manager of that team, even two days ago, after the way we played. City conceded their 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. "And if we are not clinical, okay, next one, next one, next one".

Manchester City and Liverpool will face Manchester City and Liverpool tonight in the Champions League quarter-final, in a match that will be called Remontada exceptional for the home owners, or an unprecedented achievement for the visitors. "But I think we need to come here with the mindset that it's 0-0 and we want to win the game".

"Sooner or later it is going to happen, maybe not tomorrow, but with what this club has done in the last 10 years, in terms of creating facilities with a lot of investment, sooner or later that is going to happen".

The Reds have never won an English club at the Champions League, which is what the Reds are aiming to achieve for the first time at Al Ittihad, although the draw is enough to qualify for the semi-final.

The Dutchman said: "It is pretty clear defending a 3-0 lead is going to be odd but we need to come here with the mindset it is still 0-0, we want to win". Playing for the semi-finals of the Champions League with my team. I don't have to talk too much about motivation, the way they play all season shows what they want to do. I like to watch my team, the way we play this season and the way we played in the first half against United.

Pep Guardiola's side let a two-goal lead slip to blow the chance of securing the Premier League title against their bitter rivals and Fernandinho admitted that it has been a hard week.
