Man City vs Liverpool
Will Wednesday night be the last time Man City turn out in the 2017-18 Champions League?
Man City have a mountain to climb in the UCL quarterfinal against Liverpool after two horror results on the spin.
Pep Guardiola’s men have lost two matches in a row, conceding three goals on each occasion.
Liverpool thrashed City 3-0 at Anfield in the Champions League, before Man United staged a remarkable recovery in a 3-2 Premier League win on Saturday.
Have the wheels fallen off Man City’s season?
While their still a shoo-in to win the Premier League title, City now seem to be limping over the finishing line rather than powering through it.
Bad news for Liverpool’s Mo Salah
Liverpool drew 0-0 at Everton on Saturday in the league.
Jurgen Klopp significantly rotated his side for the Everton game, while Mohamed Salah was left out the squad altogether.
On Sunday, the Express have opted to scare Liverpool fans with the suggestion that Salah may miss the Man City game on Wednesday.
What’s their proof? The Express are clutching at straws following Klopp’s comments after Everton.
The Liverpool boss made it clear that Salah was never in contention to appear at Goodison Park after his recent groin problem.
The tabloid announce that Salah “faces a race against time to be fit” for Man City.
In happier news, Liverpool welcomed back Nathaniel Clyne on Saturday at Everton. It was the defender’s first appearance of the season after a long spate of injuries.
Roberto Firmino was also given a bit of a rest against Everton as the Brazilian was brought off the bench in the second half along with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
