The Englishman has the ability to test the opposition goalkeeper from long range, and he popped up with a stellar 25-yard strike during the Champions League quarter-final first leg.

"They had two attacks and scored two goals".

"But we have 90 minutes and like in any sport, basketball and football anything can happen".

Following City's defeat at Anfield, they fail an uphill task of making the Champions League semi-final. We need to thank them all.

"Of course, to go through you have to make nearly the ideal game - create chances, be clinical and concede few chances", Guardiola said. We will be ready tomorrow to apply our kind of game. "But when you play against Liverpool or in Europe when you have that momentum you have to close the door".

"What we have done this season is incredible and we have a chance to go through in the Champions League".

Liverpool's three goals came against City in the space of 19 minutes while United took just 16 minutes to rattle the onion sack on three separate occasions.

"But we must be together. We know that and the opponents know that". But maybe we will improve for the future regarding this, and realize that sometimes it is not enough what you've done to win. Two defeats is not easy but it happens to the best teams in the world.

"We've got a 3-0 advantage at half-time so it's down to us not to sit back and be on the front foot".

Despite losing back-to-back games, though, Guardiola claims that there are positives to take from the display produced by his players ahead of the second leg against Liverpool.

But it is clear that Klopp's side have a few critics.

The Liverpool manager left out Mohamed Salah as he recovers from a groin problem and named Roberto Firmino on the bench along with three academy players in Curtis Jones, Rafael Camacho and Conor Masterson, who were only issued with Premier League squad numbers on Friday.
