Guardiola’s and Klopp’s main quotes ahead of tie at Etihad


Pep Guardiola

“We have to play better to beat them.

“You cannot forget it’s a simple game. We have to focus on what we do.

“If we concede a goal, don’t give up. We did many times, in a short time we can create chances and after you have to be clinical.”

Jurgen Klopp

Asked if City are vulnerable after 2 consecutive losses: “No, I didn’t think anything like that. You have always the chance to respond and to strike back.


“When we lost here 5-0 at the beginning of the season, everybody saw the quality of City even when we were one man down.

“I am not interested in the favourites label. This is again a big test for both teams and I’m really interested to see how we cope with that.”
