Guardiola's tactical 'gift' is 'second to none in the world'

Jürgen Klopp's Liverpool side will take on their fellow Premier League club next month, in what is the first Champions League knockout game between two English clubs since Manchester United and Chelsea back in 2011. We will liaise with both clubs and their supporter groups to ensure the event is enjoyed safely by everyone.

Manchester City have been thoroughly dominating this season, but their insistence on improving the depth of the squad consistently is appreciable.

When Pellegrini won the title in 2014, his players were gentlemen.

"We need to compete with teams like Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich - the biggest teams on a regular basis, so it doesn't make a difference who you get at this stage".

The idea that completing a large number of passes and therefore having a large amount of possession, is the main step on the way to success, or indeed entertainment, is wrong. When the going got tough, City dropped points.

That's three goals less than Salah, although Messi still has nine League games left this season, while Salah only has seven. The Champions League is thus their last realistic hope of silverware and they will be raring to go for the quarter-final tie.

He said on a testing draw: "It's a very difficult one". According to the Daily Mail, the manager is a massive admirer of the Borussia Dortmund midfielder, who could cost about £40 million (R592 million).

Speaking to RTL, the Germany international put his side's near-perfect campaign down to the tactical work of Guardiola. That is an advantage to Arsenal in this debate.

That's not the first time the club has been charged under Guardiola, either.

"To have a break, to be in the sun, you can also enjoy it a little more here".

City have been so consistently great that they have delivered a return on investment for punters on a long-term basis - especially those taking advantage of free bets, such as Ladbrokes' £50 welcome offer.

Puel criticised City this week, claiming the wealthy Premier League leaders had shown his side a lack of respect as they tried to push through a dramatic bid for the winger in last month's transfer window. However, the late pursuit of Riyad Mahrez in the January transfer window yielded no viable result. "So of course if I can score against United and help the team win the game it will be fantastic".

Bernardo Silva is evidently enjoying his football at Emirates Palace.
