Liverpool's Salah could feature in Man City away leg

Although Liverpool holds a 3-0 aggregate going into the Etihad Stadium tie, Klopp said the Reds would still look to win the second leg. Tuesday night could define the entire campaign and City's players will - or should - be fired up. "I think we can make it hard for any team in the world - but we need to show it".

Man City beat 10-man Liverpool 5-0 in the PL earlier this season at home, and scored three goals in their 4-3 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield in January. We are still in the lead. The Scot found himself sidelined for the majority of the first half of the season until an injury to Alberto Moreno in December handed him a run in the side.

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

But the last time they led a European match by three goals at half-time was November's group tie against Sevilla when they conceded three in a insane 45 minutes to draw. Then we can apply our type of game.

First Warning Forecast: Falling temperatures, rain, wind and possible snow
Despite morning temps of around 10 degrees in Fargo, it wasn't cold enough to break the daily record of zero degrees set in 1881. Saturday night , the forecast calls for an overnight low of around 50 degrees but some inland areas could see the mid 40s.

"A club like Liverpool should always be in the quarter-finals, semi-finals of the Champions League and competing with the best clubs in the world".

But the Premier League champions elect - who have lost back-to-back games for the first time this season after defeat to rivals Manchester United - must come storming out of the blocks, believes Jenas. City conceded their six goals in the past two games during a pair of intense short spells and Guardiola said they have to be ready to deal with adversity "If we concede, don't give up - it's more than 90 minutes. It is about doing the right things, staying in the mood where we can bring in our strengths". "They will play their best to confirm the result but we can also produce a miracle", Di Francesco told apre-match press conference.

Head coach Jurgen Klopp opted to rest Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino during the Goodison Park meeting in preparation for this game against City.

"We can not forget it is a simple game - just focus on every single minute". That was without Sergio Aguero, Kevin De Bruyne and Gabriel Jesus on the pitch. But when you play against Liverpool or in Europe, when you have that momentum, you have to close the door.
