Guardiola confident 'exceptional' Man City can produce Champions League comeback

Guardiola confident 'exceptional' Man City can produce Champions League comeback

Guardiola said: "I know I will be judged on results but the performances - my team is extraordinary".

City's players know that scoring the first goal is the most important on Tuesday and if that happens they have the ability to score four or five quickly.

"[Liverpool] are a team who fight for the ball and try to keep the players in the middle but we will be ready for tomorrow's game".

And he has urged his side not to panic even if City grab an early goal as Liverpool bid to hold on to their 3-0 first leg lead.

It is inevitable that they will still win the title because they are so far clear, but they will be devastated not to have done it in the derby.

"That is better than I would have expected".

"I think Liverpool will go through, because they've got that 3-0 lead, but the game is not over". We can not forget it's just a simple game and focus on every single minute what we need to do.

"A club like Liverpool should always be in the quarter-finals, semi-finals of the Champions League and competing with the best clubs in the world".

Fernandinho admits they failed to cope with Liverpool in the first leg and says they must not concede if they are to have any chance of going through. Maybe we will be closer to beating them.

That is probably the biggest worry for Guardiola, because he can not afford for any of his players to have any doubts.

"I would rather yes (he plays) than no, but we have to see and wait for the reaction".

"It would be the same if they were 3-0 up".

The Egyptian wide man has been a crucial part of the side this season, but left the field early in the first leg against City.

Their capitulation in the second half - when they conceded three goals in 16 minutes - was down to a combination of things, but it still throws into doubt whether it will happen against the Reds, and also against Tottenham at Wembley next weekend.

Pep Guardiola claims his "extraordinary" and "exceptional" Manchester City side will not give up in their quest to overturn the odds against Liverpool.

City's hopes of getting the goals needed will be boosted if Sergio Aguero is declared fit to start.

The big question in this game is this: will Liverpool be able to sit back and defend and not play their usual game of high-pressing and forcing the issue?
