Goals Guaranteed in All-English Tussle
Sometimes matches between domestic rivals in the Champions League are a little underwhelming, but anyone who enjoys football will be looking forward to the tussle between these two enterprising outfits.
The onus will be on Liverpool in the first leg, as they’ll be roared on by their supporters with memories of their 4-3 win over City in mind from earlier in the campaign.
With Salah in such stunning form, the Reds will feel as though they can accomplish anything, too. After another goal to secure a late win for Liverpool at Crystal Palace on Saturday, football writer Andrew Beasley put the Egyptian’s goalscoring exploits into context:
And, as noted below, Salah’s extraordinary form has been causing quite a stir back in his homeland:
In addition to Salah, City will have the elusive Roberto Firmino and the dynamic Sadio Mane to cope with at Anfield. Guardiola will want to see his side do a better job here than they did in January, when the trio ran riot.
Yet City won’t take a backwards step against Liverpool, and against Everton in the Premier League on Saturday, they were at their sizzling best, with Leroy Sane, Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling pulling the Toffees apart in a stunning first-half show.
Per Tony Scott of the Liverpool Echo, Guardiola appreciated the fact Everton supporters applauded City off the field at the end of the game:
In the game against Liverpool at Anfield earlier in the season, the Reds smothered City in midfield, pouncing on Fernandinho whenever he was in possession and stopping the supply line from the Brazilian into David Silva and Kevin De Bruyne.
It’ll be intriguing to see how Guardiola looks to go about combatting that press. However, as relayed by Kristof Terreur of Het Laatste Nieuws, the midfield linchpin appears better prepared for dealing with that type of challenge based on his performance on Saturday:
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will want to see his players make the most of the atmosphere and start quickly against City. If they can do that, get Salah into the game and upset City’s mechanical passing, then they have a chance of taking an advantage to the Etihad Stadium for the second leg.
Yet the visitors appear ready for this almighty challenge. City are well-rested, in form and seemingly focused ahead of the biggest week in their season so far. They’ll match Liverpool and give themselves an edge at the midpoint of this tantalising tie.
