Man City briefing: day-by-day guide to key spell

SHARP SHOOTER: Leroy Sané takes aim.
Saturday's consummate victory over Everton has set in motion a potentially historic spell for City.

The Blues face reds of varying shades in three huge games, with the two-legged Champions League quarter-final against Liverpool coming either side of what could be the Premier League title-clinching game against United.

There are bound to be twists and turns along the way and there's a definite sense of being buckled into a rollercoaster ride at this point of proceedings!

Here's a day-by-day run down of what to look out for once the Bank Holiday weekend is over...

Tuesday 3 April

The Champions League build-up begins in earnest. Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will hold his press conference before Pep Guardiola and one of the Blues' first team stars face the media ahead of the last-eight first-leg clash at Anfield. City will go through their paces in a partly open training session too - and we'll have live coverage of all of that across our channels.

Will Sergio Aguero recover from a knee injury in time to take part in the game? And will Fabian Delph and Benjamin Mendy come into the selection equation following injury? You'll be able to find out when Guardiola provides his team news update.

Wednesday 4 April - Liverpool v City - Anfield, 7.45pm KO (Champions League)

It's game day and a fascinating first leg is in prospect. Both sides are packed full of attacking intent and City will no doubt be hunting for those all-important away goals. The last time City visited Liverpool in the league we lost 4-3 and the Blues have won just once in 37 years at Anfield. That stat alone tells you the severity of the task - but records are there to be broken!

We'll have live coverage across all our channels with live radio and text commentary on our Match Day Centre. Check out TV information here.
