Virgil van Dijk insists Liverpool will not sit on their 3-0 lead in the second leg of the Champions League quarterfinal against Manchester City. "Of course to go through you have to make the flawless game, create chances, be clinical, concede few chances, all the conditions have to be ideal", said the Spaniard.

He missed the weekend draw against Everton as a result, with the Reds struggling to fashion many chances in the absence of both he and, for most of the game, Roberto Firmino.

"We know we are capable of scoring goals".

"We have to think about football: what we have to do, where we have to do it".

"But still we need to show it and be ready for a fight, ready for a good game". It's more than 90 minutes but we showed many times, in a short period we can create chances and you have to be clinical. I like to watch my team, the way we play this season and the way we played in the first half against United.

City's humbling in the first leg at Anfield last Wednesday was followed by another capitulation as they surrendered a two-goal lead to lose 3-2 to rivals Manchester United in their derby on Saturday. "But I think we need to come here with the mindset that it's 0-0 and we want to win the game". "It is better than I expected but you all know there is still a lot of work to do... we have to be at our best".

If Mayweather was to make his debut in MMA he would most likely fight at featherweight (145 pounds). Many have even wondered if Mayweather will come out of retirement at all.

"What this club has done in the last 10 years in terms of creating fantastic facilities with a lot of investment, sooner or later it is going to happen".

"I will be close to them no matter what happens here until the end of the season".

"I think to reach the semi-final would be the second time in our lovely history".

Guardiola has to put out a side that fits the task they face, which is why I am expecting him to go for it with the type of team he sets up, right from the back.

"It's true the third goal he has to defend his back, but we are here in the quarter-finals and 13 points in front in the Premier League and Nico is an important reason why". Head coach Jurgen Klopp opted to rest Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino during the Goodison Park meeting in preparation for this game against City.

Salah, Liverpool's top scorer with 38 goals to his name this season, had been a fitness doubt after picking up a groin injury in the 3-0 victory over City in the first leg.
