Guardiola, Klopp know "anything can happen" in Europe

While they may have one hand on the Premier League title, despite a weekend derby defeat by Manchester United delaying the celebrations, City are on the brink of exiting Europe after being hammered 3-0 at Liverpool in the first leg of their quarter-final.

Guardiola reiterated it may be too soon for City to win the Champions League, but acknowledged how important overcoming Liverpool in the quarter-finals could prove to his desire for long-term success.

"We will think about how many goals we score after we get the first one". Many times we have created a lot of chances in a short period.

"Maybe next year, but soon it will happen". You all know there is a lot of work to do. My team is extraordinary, it's not comparable to many others.

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk admits he's delighted to have pushed so hard to move to Anfield this season.

'Then he had concussion with the national team, and couldn't play against Everton.

"[Liverpool] are a team who fight for the ball and try to keep the players in the middle but we will be ready for tomorrow's game". We lost here 5-0 in the beginning of the season. A good test. Football is a challenge like life. It's more than 90 minutes but we showed many times, in a short period we can create chances and you have to be clinical.

"I don't think Barcelona thinks they are already through against Roma because that is football, you have always the chance to respond and to strike back". It was 1-1 at home to Monaco when there was a clear penalty on [Sergio] Agüero and what should have been a red card, but the Spanish referee didn't call it. "We are in the lead, nothing else".

During the two matches in which Lahoz has refereed at the Etihad Stadium, he has awarded three penalties to...

He answered that question in the build up to Liverpool's crucial second leg quarterfinal fixture against Manchester City on Tuesday.

Tuesday night could define the entire campaign and City's players will - or should - be fired up.

Where can I watch Manchester City v Liverpool?

There will, though, be an increased security presence. Guardiola is not accustomed to losing football games, let alone two in the space of four days, so the scrutiny he was about to face was a relatively unusual experience for him.

And he believes the all-English showdown will come down to Liverpool's defence, rather than City's attack - despite the fact that City failed to muster a single shot on target in their first meeting.
