John Aldridge: The big danger for Liverpool ahead of Man City rematch

Klopp: Emre Can's season could be over

Sergio Aguero took part in training on Monday as Manchester City continued preparations for our Champions League quarter-final second leg with Liverpool.

"Of course to go through you have to make the flawless game, create chances, be clinical and concede few chances", he said. Then we can apply our type of game. The aim is tough but we have 90 minutes and in football everything can happen. "They have it most consistently, that is why they will be champions, but we know they can concede goals".

Liverpool's forward line looked far less potent in the absence of Salah and a rested Roberto Firmino, with Aldridge suggesting Klopp needs his star men back quickly if his side are to have any chance of winning the Champions League.

They were 3-0 up at halftime in Sevilla in their group stage match in November but ended up drawing 3-3 after a second-half comeback was completed with an added-time equaliser from Guido Pizarro. We have very often created a lot of chances in short periods of time and we have to be clinical.

City will attempt to overturn their 3-0 deficit when City welcome Liverpool in the second-leg tie of their Champions League clash on Tuesday.

'I want to tell you, with Nico in the first few months of the season John was the best - or one of the best - central defenders in the world, ' Guardiola said. The chances we receive, we have to defend well.

"Every game you have to stand up, it is not only this night".

LaLiga: Real Madrid 1 Atletico Madrid 1 - Griezmann pegs back Ronaldo opener
Real Madrid welcome Juventus to the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday for the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final. And there was a feisty nature to the early stages, with early yellow cards on either side for Toni Kroos and Vitolo .

With nothing to lose now, expect the Citizens to go all out attack for the visit of Jurgen Klopp's side to try and at least save face.

"To reach the semi-final would be for the second time in our attractive history". That's what I am talking about in terms of not needing examples. It was one of the best first halves I ever saw. My team is extraordinary.

"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".

There is a clip of Pep Guardiola focusing intently on re-arranging the mobile phones and tape recorders on his desk prior to his news conference ahead of Manchester City's weekend derby encounter with Manchester United.

But the former Everton man has started just two of City's last 14 games and was not even on the bench at the Etihad on Saturday as United clinched a stunning 3-2 victory after trailing 2-0.

When asked if Liverpool were favourites, the German chief said: "I am not interested in these kinds of labels".
