Word from the opposition

"For those who have seen our two clashes in the Premier League this year, and in the last few years as well since Pep arrived - and, to be honest, before his era - they know that it's always an exciting match. And that's the way football should be," Jurgen Klopp said ahead of the match.

"The main focus probably won't be on the result, instead it'll be about doing more things right than the opponent, because you can't simply defend against Man City and hope that they won't score on the day. They're just too good."
