They need a fast start at the Etihad to give them hope of a dramatic turnaround, with Sun Bets offering 5/2 for the hosts to lead after 15 minutes.

"In all the clubs in the world you need a lot of time". What we done this season is wonderful.

There was no announcement from City on the day but Guardiola said at Monday's press conference that Stones was rested after a muscular injury problem in training. We all know about Pep, best coach in the world.

"Without them, Liverpool look half the team they were against City and while I would not point an accusing finger at Solanke and Ings for that, the reality is they are not at the same level as Salah and Firmino".

Guardiola admits that nothing but a "perfect" game will suffice for his team to get through. "Our focus is on the second leg against Liverpool and the only way to play good football is to be positive". The ideal scenario is to go through, but park the emotional game. The chances we receive, we have to defend well.

Brewers fall to Cubs 5-2
The Pittsburgh Pirates started the season as hot as anyone in the National League and so far are flawless on the road. Chatwood has shut down the Pirates in his two career starts, conceding only two runs in 12 innings.

"The result is tough but we have 90 minutes and in football anything can happen".

"We want to go and score goals and have won the game at the final whistle. We have 90 minutes plus extra time and what we have shown this year - even in the last game - is we can create a lot of chances in the last few minutes".

"I knew before they could concede goals and we can concede goals and lose".

"I liked the performance against Roma because it was truly very hard".

"As with all high-profile games such as this, we have also carried out intelligence gathering beforehand and will continue to work with both clubs and supporter groups to ensure all fans can enjoy the match in a competitive but safe environment".

"It is common sense to say when we play in the Champions League against the Premier League leaders you are not the favourite".

Manchester City were eliminated last season in the last 16 by AS Monaco and it would be a disappointment for them to fail to make the last four after such a dominant season domestically. "Things are better but it only shows us that these things are possible", he said.

Sergio Aguero missed the first leg at Anfield but made a return to action in the Manchester derby this weekend and will likely be given the nod to start by Guardiola.

He said, "They are a team that likes to play long balls". Roma are without winger Diego Perotti, but they will have Radja Nainggolan and Cengiz Under available.
