Guardiola assesses Man City chances of overturning Liverpool tie

Right on this note, let us look at the five players who will be the keys to deciding the second leg between Liverpool and Manchester City.

"Not sure one-hundred per cent", replied Klopp at the pre-match press briefing before revealing that Salah had spent Sunday night at Melwood with the club's athletic coach. "We'll see the momentum, try to keep it longer and then we'll see", he added.

Earlier on Monday Jurgen Klopp had suggested it was "more likely than not" that the No. 11 would return to action this evening-and so it has proven, much to the relief of Reds fans everywhere.

"The way they [City's players] play all season in every single game". Of course we know two defeats are not easy but that happens to the best teams in the world. However, City lost control of the game after the intermission, allowing the Red Devils to net three goals, two from Paul Pogba and one by Chris Smalling, en route to the disappointing defeat.

That would be costly for China , but President Xi Jinping has already said he's willing to do whatever it takes to win this thing. Asia markets - hammered along with global equities by the trade row in recent weeks - rallied on the speech Tuesday.

City were eliminated last season in the last 16 by Monaco and it would be a disappointment for them to fail to make the last four after such a dominant season domestically.

Klopp's team did, however, blow a three-goal lead at Sevilla in the group stage while City have scored at least three goals in 12 home games this season, and the Liverpool manager expects Pep Guardiola's side to start with the same intensity as in the derby against Manchester United on Saturday.

'If now we are in a situation where we have a chance to go through to the semi-finals of the Champions League and to win the Premier League trophy is because we did a lot to deserve it. "If we concede a goal, don't give up", he said.

"'I think the competition to reach the semi-final would be only the second time in our history".

'We need to learn from this and turn the page quickly to focus on Tuesday and the rest of the league'. Neither Guardiola nor his players used that unsettling incident as an excuse for their limp performance. "Probably more compact than usual, but if they get too comfortable, and City score a goal they will get nervous again".

But for me, having played in games that have gone the same way, it was not a case of City being found out, or switching off - more that it just wasn't their day. We have 90 minutes and anything can happen.

"I don't know", was Guardiola's honest reply when asked if he thought his squad was in need of some mental strengthening. We've seen what City can do.
