Liverpool and Manchester City are due to face off this week in their eagerly awaited Champions League quarter-final.
Both teams are renowned for the high intensity attacking football they play, and the fact that Jurgen Klopp’s side are the only Premier League team to have defeated Pep Guardiola’s Champions elect this season, only adds to the intrigue of what should be an epic encounter.
Liverpool’s attacking trio of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Saido Mane are one of Europes deadliest attacking units and have netted a sensational 75 goals between them so far this term.
All three scored in Liverpool’s 4-3 victory over City back in January, and Pep Guardiola’s has admitted that his side will have their work cut out to try and stop them over the course of their two Champions League ties.
The former Barcelona coach also revealed that he hopes his team do not become too affected by what is sure to be an amazing atmosphere at Anfield when the two sides face each other on Wednesday.
“It’s not just Salah,”
“Mane and Firmino, all three, they are almost unstoppable. They’re fantastic.”
“We lost a bit of control, we were involved in the environment of Anfield,”
“The way Liverpool play is so complicated for us. We know that. They are so quick, they are so good and it is tough.” Guardiola told the BBC.
