Pep Guardiola

And the Spanish manager praised his counterpart, saying : "He’s a top coach.
“They’re an attacking side, they win the ball and attack.
“When they lose the ball, they immediately transition between offensive and defensive and then win the ball and attack.
“They like to attack in four, five, six seconds all the time.
“When they face teams they want to attack they feel comfortable, when teams defend deep a lot sometimes they have more problems.”

Jurgen Kloop

"These games are always important. I can't remember a game that was not important in the Premier League," Klopp told a news conference.
"We all know the quality of Manchester City. I thought the way they played against Monaco was quite impressive. City could have won the game easily but because they are human beings they are out.
"But their quality is really high.
"You have to win all the challenges, if you lose one it can hurt. We have felt good in these [big] games so far but, for me, they are the most difficult team to play.
"I know their image in this country is different, the Pep Guardiola style... but it's real football. It's difficult to defend against them. We know what we have to do but if we can do it, I don't know."
He added: "I don't think we are the favourites. That's not too bad.
"We know that we can be difficult to play in games like this, that's true, but we have to be at our best to get anything.
"I am really looking forward to this, it's a real tactical challenge.
"It's an important moment in the season, but we know that it's possible to win."
