City boss Guardiola told Sky Sports: "Not just [Salah] - Mane and Firmino, all three, they are nearly unstoppable".

"Of course I want to win against United at home but we have three days before we have Liverpool, after we have three days before United and after we have three days before the second leg so few recovery days". We know that. They are so quick, they are so tough but it's the quarter-finals of the Champions League so we can not expect something at this level is going to be easy. There's no guarantee this will work.

Where will Man City turn if their owners decide they have done enough to promote tourism in Abu Dhabi and sell on their investment for a huge profit in years to come to new owners who are not prepared to share their bottomless reservoir of cash?

Guardiola hailed the Reds attacking trio of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino as "almost unstoppable."

One approach Klopp won't be taking is simply trying to shut up shop.

"He's that kind of player that you just need to be on your best".

Klopp's "gegenpressing" style, honed at Borussia Dortmund, involves a rapid swarming of opponents' territory when they lose the ball, and a high defence to limit space and make good use of high-energy attacking full backs.

I can't control what he does, so I've just got to make sure I prepare well for games and be ready", he said. The Belgian playmaker said: "If they score you know it is going to get a bit more heated than if we score".

Spurs forward Harry Kane to return for Chelsea clash?
Pochettino feels the attention on Alli is unfair, saying the midfielder was capable of being a key player for Spurs and England . We need to assess in the next few days. 'Toby in the last four months has struggled with his injury.

"There's no big difference, actually".

"At specific moments we are on a similar level, but they have been much more consistent, and that's why they are higher in the league". So I don't think a draw is a good result or a victory. However, that difference has never been as small as it is now.

"I'm not going to say: 'Don't be happy, don't dream to win the league.' I won't say that because our opponents would say the same if it was the opposite".

But the blues boss knows how much it will mean to the supporters should they clinch the title against their city rivals. When the players are in position they move every millisecond in order to be available.

And according to Goal's Sam Lee, Guardiola has informed senior figures in the City dressing room that he will rest them on Saturday if the tie remains in the balance following the first leg.

"They see how his teams play, they see it's an appealing type of football".
