Key Quotes

Manuel Pellegrini on Raheem Sterling: "He's a young man, a young player starting his career, but he knows how to deal with pressure.

"He'll receive the same treatment tomorrow as he did at the weekend, but I'm sure he can play without a problem, and he'll be a very important player, as he was in last game."

On the rest of the season: "I'm sure our team will continue growing from now until the end of the season. When you have experience, it's easier. When you see what happens over the seasons, you must trust." 

Jurgen Klopp: "I know it’s a very important game for them and it’s a very important game for us, so it’s not that the game is not too important, it’s about thinking ‘Can I bring in another [player] that is 100 per cent fit?’

On Simon Mignolet: "There was no day when somebody, outside Melwood, was 100 percent satisfied with whatever he did. And he has had a lot of good games for us, really good games.

"He has the hard way to go, like Liverpool FC too. He's old enough, he's experienced enough and together we have to handle the situation and together we have to go through it."
