Gary Lineker: What I thought of Liverpool's draw at Man City

That scenario would require Manchester United to win the UEFA Europa League - where they are now the favorites - and for the last remaining English side in Champions League competition, Leicester City, to win that competition as well. In England it's the difficulty of this league and the quality of the players around.

Amidst the mounting criticism - plenty of which is disproportionate - Guardiola admitted to failing; not tactically, but in terms of communication.

The match is expected to be a brilliant encounter, and this Premier League fixture has always seen lots of goals, and the same could be witnessed on Sunday too. For me, the first time to play against Aguero. "I am so proud", said Guardiola, whose side were knocked out of the Champions League by Monaco in mid-week. At least we showed spirit that we didn't show in the first half in Monaco.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp spoke of his admiration for the style of play implemented by Pep Guardiola at City.

Approaching the end of the first decade under Abu Dhabi ownership, City is in need of another large-scale refresh in the dressing room. "We have to recover because it was quite a hard game and then we have to think about Liverpool".

Their meetings in the Bundesliga, where the rivalry began, were often described as "football of the future". I'd be happier to be involved in the draw for the Champions League (quarter-finals). "But I know what my standard is in terms of the past".

Don't worry, Villanova losing busted everyone's bracket not just yours
What's more, Wisconsin connected on the highest percentage of its field goal attempts of any VU opponent this season (.531). Butler connecting on 51.1 percent of their shots including 8 of 15 from beyond the arc while making 18 of 23 free throws.

"He prefers to win the Champions League, of course. I hope we're going to learn from this defeat to come here next season and be like we were at the Etihad or in the last 45 minutes here".

Klopp was satisfied with his team's performance but said that he felt his team could have won. You must be something special if you can put [Sergio] Aguero out of the team.

Guardiola does not agree with criticism that his side is defensively naive. Always you can do better and better.

So Guardiola will have to coax the best out of Sergio Aguero and Kevin De Bruyne, two big names who on several occasions have gone missing when their side needs them most. Pep and his players have come under criticism, and a win against Liverpool could be an ideal way to shut those critics. "We have a team with not a lot of experience in these types of competitions". That has been our problem all season. I was managing at two clubs where in the boxes, they were top.

Indeed, if the Premier League table was based on home form alone, Tottenham are six points clear of Chelsea at the top - albeit having played two games more on home soil.
