Man City need 'perfect game' to shock Liverpool - Guardiola

Pep Guardiola believes Manchester City will have to play a "perfect game" to move through to the Champions League semi-finals.

Like Manchester City, the Reds boss Jurgen Klopp decided to make five changes to the starting lineup, and this reduced their usual attacking threat.

"The quality of City was clear".

Guardiola's side gave up a two goal lead in that game and they know that even a single slip-up against Liverpool will make their task of progressing to the semi-finals nearly impossible. "It is flawless for me and it will be nice to go back there".

The same happened earlier in the season when the Premier League Champions to be coughed up three goals in nine second half minutes and Guardiola admits that this has been a problem throughout his managerial career, recalling a defeat to Barcelona as Bayern Munich manager in 2015. We will try and we will see. We concede few. But it is impossible when the opponents arrive four times and score three goals.

'We need to come in with the mindset it's 0-0.

Scott Walker's spokeswoman says the state "stands ready to support our nation" if asked to send National Guard troops to the U.S. Christian Patterson says about 3,500 MS soldiers are now training in Texas for deployment later this year to the Middle East.

"We have to focus on what we do". "We will have to create chances, be clinical and concede few chances and defend well, all the conditions, because the result is tough. And if we are not clinical, okay, next one, next one, next one".

Guardiola's side trail 3-0 from last week and since then they've lost the Manchester derby to United 3-2 despite leading 2-0 at half-time.

But Guardiola says he is delighted with his players, particularly the way they continued to make goalscoring opportunities after going behind against United.

He added: "I think it would be the second time in our lovely history if we reached the semi-finals, that's enough". "I don't have to talk about how lovely it is".

And Guardiola has admitted that his side need to execute the ideal game if they are to progress.

"It is going really well there but it is not for me to judge, just focus on Tuesday, but they played a really good season".
