After this weekend’s Premier League fixtures, the attention of the vast majority of football fans will turn to the mouthwatering Champions League quarter-final between Liverpool and Man City.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are the only top flight team to beat Pep Guardiola’s men this season, and with both managers renowned for their attacking style, it really is set up to be a fascinating encounter.
Former Liverpool captain and club legend Steven Gerrard recently spoke to Joe.co.uk and revealed how excited he is about watching the game, as well as stating his believe that his former side have a great chance of progressing to the semi-final.
“Those games can’t come quick enough for me to be able to analyse it on BT Sport,”
“It’s the kind of unmissable match you genuinely get enthusiastic about and can learn so much from.
“It’s top-class footballers looking to go toe-to-toe with each other in a very dominant, attacking style under two hugely respected managers who have very clear philosophies. It’s an exciting draw for both teams and both will believe they can progress through to the semis.
“We’ve seen some amazing games of football between them recently, and from a neutral point of view, I think it’s a 50-50 tie: City have shown their unbelievable quality this season and Liverpool have proven they can better any team in a game – including City.
“Now from a biased point of view, I’ve got every confidence that Jurgen Klopp and the team can deliver over both legs because they’ve shown they can do it. The manager’s got a great record in Europe, he knows Pep Guardiola well, and the opposition inside out.” Gerard said.
