'I have an idea' - Guardiola plots new defensive strategy for Liverpool clash

Guardiola's side trail Liverpool 3-0 at the halfway stage of their Champions League quarter final tie and the Spaniard admitted the collapse against United could play on their minds when the crucial second leg tie kicks off on Tuesday.

And he has urged his side not to panic even if City grab an early goal as Liverpool bid to hold on to their 3-0 first leg lead. "Concede few chances. Defend well with our goalkeeper making saves", Guardiola said.

He told a pre-match news conference: "Of course, to go through you have to make nearly the ideal game, create a lot of chances, be clinical, and the chances we're going to receive, defend well and the keeper save it". 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.

"We can not forget it is a simple game - just focus on every single minute".

"The first 20 minutes are going to be so important in deciding the outcome and if City get an early goal, their confidence will soar and I think they will go on and get the other two".

"The only way to play good football is to be positive", he said. "We need a little bit more from this game". "It is about doing the right things, staying in the mood where we can bring in our strengths". We have very often created a lot of chances in short period of time and we have to be clinical. We have to score the first one.

On Saturday Guardiola's City blew a 2-0 half-time lead and the chance to clinch the Premier League title against their fierce rivals Manchester United as they lost 3-2 at the Etihad.

"You don't need to remind them of a specific game", Klopp said.

"I think the fans have been waiting for it, the players the same, it's the best competition for a player to be involved in and you want to try to give something back to the fans when you get there".

"What this club has done in the last 10 years in terms of creating incredible facilities with a lot of investment, sooner or later it is going to happen. If they start playing as they have most of the season, keeping the ball and scoring goals, it could be a close game".

"I think Liverpool will go through, because they've got that 3-0 lead, but the game is not over. I hope we can do our job".

By contrast, Robertson was a £10 million pick-up from Hull City, who were relegated from the Premier League last season, whilst Alexander-Arnold has been at the club since the age of six. It is top. My team is exceptional. Head coach Jurgen Klopp opted to rest Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino during the Goodison Park meeting in preparation for this game against City.

"He was diving", came the rather terse response, with no update on Aguero's condition.
