Arsenal legend Henry: Man City will learn from Champions League exit

Manchester City vs Liverpool Preview Two teams looking for crucial three points in top-four race

On Sunday, City play Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool in the Premier League.

Philippe Coutinho has scored more Premier League goals versus Manchester City than against any other team (4) in the competition. We usually win good games, but the bad games and the average games we need to be challenging too.

City tackle Arsenal in the FA Cup semi-finals on April 23 and Guardiola accepts he will come under scrutiny if he does not lead the club to glory in the competition. They need a victory over Liverpool to keep their fans believing in Pep Guardiola's, 46, team.

"Of course we want to win titles, everyone wants to win titles, we play for that and we fight for that".

Liverpool's slump since the turn of the year may have dashed hopes of silverware but Klopp felt qualification for next season's Champions League would represent "an outstanding success".

"I will try to learn from that, speak to the people that are close to me and make the team better next season".

I see no credible reason to dump Klavan, but I suspect that Klopp will gamble on Lovren because he knows that the Croatian will have 12 days of recovery time during the upcoming global break.

Whichever team loses Sunday's match could actually face a nightmare scenario in which they finish fourth, and yet still miss out on a Champions League place.

But the Reds head into the game in fine form and will look to extend their two-game winning streak, knowing a win would see them leapfrog the Sky Blues and Tottenham into second place if the latter lose at home to Southampton this week. While I wouldn't say it's a must win for Pep, it's certainly a "must not lose" for Liverpool. "Sometimes when you play this way you can make a mistake but mistakes are part of the game". I thought it was our first ugly game we have won. I never said I was going to win the treble, I never said I was going to win the double. Maybe a few people are but I am not.

Writing in his blog for Paddy Power, Hamann said: "I expect them to press high at the start against Man City to hunt another mistake, especially as the Citizens will be a bit fragile and possibly low on confidence. After City's midweek showing they'd probably take it as well - I'm going for a 0-0 or 1-1".
