The hope must be that Sane and whoever's on the right are so high up the pitch that Sane and Salah have to drop back to help defend, rendering them mostly useless. If City can control possession in the Liverpool half, it should mean - in theory - that Klopp's team can't get out of their own half, City can turn up the … [Read more...] about Man City vs Liverpool, Champions League: live score updates

Last week was a terrible seven days for Premier League champions-elect Manchester City. A heavy 3-0 defeat at Anfield in the Champions League and then a 3-2 defeat after being 2-0 up against United on Saturday. The latter delayed City's title celebrations for at least another week while the former has made City's progression in the the UCL semi-finals very difficult. Tuesday night, however, will give Pep Guardiola's team a chance to achieve their Champions League dream as they play the home leg in the quarter-final. To take the game to extra time, City will need to win 3-0. If Liverpool score one, City will have to win 5-1 to progress due to the away goals rule. Sergio Aguero, who missed the first leg through injury, is expected to be fit while Liverpool may be without star man Mo Salah, who was hauled off in the game on Wednesday due to injury.

City Ederson 9 The Brazilian shot-stopper has completely transformed Manchester City's approach this season. His commanding displays lift the entire defence and he even poses an attacking threat from goal. Walker 8.5 Another player who has been sensational this season. Walker has proven so many people wrong with his thrilling form this season. Not many rival fans are quoting his price-tag anymore. Kompany 7.5 When fit he is perhaps the best central defender in English football. Effortlessly reads the game and is the perfect defensive partner for Nicolas Otamendi. Invaluable experience which will be crucial at Anfield. Otamendi 8 It's hard to believe just how far the Argentine has come this season.
