Karius: Liverpool should repeat Man City game plan

"What we have done this season is incredible and now we are so close to the finish, we all know it is not easy but we are going to fight in the Champions League".

Like Manchester City, the Reds boss Jurgen Klopp decided to make five changes to the starting lineup, and this reduced their usual attacking threat.

Vincent Kompany and Ilkay Gundogan goals put City on course for a victory that would seal the Premier League title, only for United to return reinvigorated from half-time and act as party poopers thanks to Paul Pogba's brace and a Chris Smalling volley.

"We will think about how many goals we score after we get the first one". I'm only happy with the clean sheet. We need to thank them all.

Guardiola's side gave up a two goal lead in that game and they know that even a single slip-up against Liverpool will make their task of progressing to the semi-finals nearly impossible. Raheem Stertling, in particular, was guilty for missing two clear-cut opportunities during the first-half, which should have killed the game.

"It's true the third goal he has to defend his back, but we are here in the quarter-finals and 13 points in front in the Premier League and Nico is an important reason why". He knows the confidence I have in him, especially in the last years.

"Our fans will be together with us, and we are going to fight to the end".

The Sunday Supplement panel assess what went wrong for Manchester City following their 3-2 defeat to Manchester United.

"They are a top team, we know that". We can make it hard for any team in the world but we have to show it. The way they play every single game shows what we want to do.

He continued: "If we are not able to go through because of psychological damage then it will be a good lesson for the future".

"We are going to see that it is a good test. Football, like life, is a challenge and we're happy to handle it".

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