Guardiola: We'll have to be 'perfect' to beat Liverpool

"What we have done this season is fantastic and now we are so close to the finish, we all know it is not easy but we are going to fight in the Champions League".

For so long the Citizens appeared to be nearly insurmountable although they were thrashed 3-0 by Liverpool on Wednesday before coughing up a two-goal lead against United to suffer another damaging defeat.

"They are such a good team and have such good players going forward we want to approach it as we approach every game, try and win the game and approach it as a one-off and play the match over 90 minutes". Pep Guardiola's side were at one stage holding a comfortable 2-0 lead, but they appeared to switch off in the second-half where United pounced with three goals in the space of 16 minutes. I'm only happy with the clean sheet. We will see. We need the momentum.

Asked whether it was a case of United being that much better in the second half or tiredness from Anfield creeping into the City side, the Brazil worldwide retorted: "I don't agree with you because if you see the statistics of the game, you analyse the game, we had the ball possession, we had the control". We will be ready tomorrow to apply our kind of game. I hope our players can do it differently to the last game you mentioned. "The chances we receive (against) we have to defend well", Guardiola said.

"Our fans will be together with us, and we are going to fight to the end".

"And we didn't close it against United".

"I don't know but if we are not able to cope with that psychologically it will be a good lesson for the future". It was clear, the preparations for the season, their signings, we all know about Pep-the best manager in the world.

Guardiola will be desperate to see his side put in a display filled with more pride against Liverpool on Tuesday.

Liverpool are yet to issue an update on Salah's injury status; although, he is expected to be fit enough to start and confirmation could come in Klopp's pre-match press conference on Tuesday. Nobody believes but we have another game.

But it is clear that Klopp's side have a few critics.
