Manchester City midfielder: Liverpool 'play long balls'

Liverpool’s Salah wins Uefa Champions League Player of the Week award

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola admits his side need to produce a ideal performance against Liverpool in the second-leg of their Champions League quarter-final. There are no special feelings towards it, no anger. "It is flawless for me and it will be nice to go back there".

Asked whether his side's mental state had been impacted by two defeats in the past week, Guardiola said: "I don't know".

An identical result in Manchester would comfortably qualify his team for the semi-final but he was a little disappointed with the performance at Goodison Park and is hoping for a positive approach on Tuesday.

Liverpool are yet to issue an update on Salah's injury status; although, he is expected to be fit enough to start and confirmation could come in Klopp's pre-match press conference on Tuesday.

"The manager is building his own thing here and he is doing really well with a lot of good stuff", added the goalkeeper.




'We have played well against them. I'm only happy with the clean sheet.

"I don't think three will easy for them but we need to be ready and a goal is always a good idea". Pep Guardiola's side were at one stage holding a comfortable 2-0 lead, but they appeared to switch off in the second-half where United pounced with three goals in the space of 16 minutes.

"What we have done this season is unbelievable and we have a chance to go through in the Champions League". It was clear they would be outstanding but there is no ideal football team in the world. That is the job again on Tuesday.

'I think this season showed that with the numbers we have done in terms of goals and - when the team is stable - the chances we concede.

"Sometimes we need to play better, myself as well, but you can't deny that some legs are a bit exhausted". Raheem Stertling, in particular, was guilty for missing two clear-cut opportunities during the first-half, which should have killed the game.
