"I want to win the Premier League", he added. We should finish the game with 11 first of all, that would be cool.

Guardiola suggested after that game that his players may not have dealt with the atmosphere well as the Reds scored three goals in a blistering 10-minute spell in the second half. We know that. They are so quick, they are so tough but it's the quarter-finals of the Champions League so we can not expect something at this level is going to be easy.

Mohamed Salah struck a late victor as Jurgen Klopp marked his 100th game in charge of Liverpool with a 2-1 win over relegation-threatened Crystal Palace. "It's absolutely bad, but we don't know exactly what it is yet".

Liverpool's defence has been strengthened considerably by the £75 million signing of Virgil van Dijk since that 5-0 defeat.

De Bruyne's form in the first half of the season appeared to make him a shoo-in for the Professional Footballers' Association Players' Player of the Year award, but Salah's goalscoring exploits are likely to have made it a much closer race.

"We see our chance but we know it will be unbelievably hard".

Klopp pinpointed the penalty Salah scored for Egypt against Congo in October, which booked his country's place at the World Cup, as a key moment for the forward, encouraging him to kick on to the next level in his performances.

Salah is said to have told Real he will only turn his back on Liverpool if he is guaranteed a starring role. "I never would have thought it's possible", Klopp continued.

City's 3-1 beating of Everton on Saturday means they can wrap up the Premier League title with six games to spare by beating fierce rivals Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium next weekend.

"We know City are beatable. Wednesday is only the first leg".

Palace's James McArthur said of the incident: "In a lot of other games he would probably have got another yellow".

"It is a clear opportunity for us to score and to grab the ball back, it has penalised us".

"I think the moment the ball passes the defender you see it is Mo and feel good".

Now, Liverpool fans will like to hear the part about Salah staying, but to say the most in-form goal scorer in European football wouldn't get a game is preposterous.
