Man City will be 'on fire' for Real Madrid clash - Mendy

Virgil van Dik celebrates after scoring against Manchester United.

Haaland may have been linked with a move to Manchester United before he eventually chose Dortmund but Saturday's performance just provided another reminder of his familial connections to rivals Manchester City.

The club's hierarchy believe that Guardiola, a two-time victor of the Champions League as a coach, could be the man to take the French giants to the next level of European football.

"He's had the weekend to recover and we'll make that decision today for tomorrow's game".

But Jurgen Klopp doesn't want his team to look too far ahead with a United team visiting that has the potential to win any game.

Even with Liverpool unbeaten through 22 rounds and with a game in hand, the players aren't as bullish as their fans in declaring the title a done deal. We scored from the set-piece but had other situations obviously. "It is one game at a time".

"Everyone is involved in that", said Van Dijk. Salah also scuffed a shot and captain Jordan Henderson hit the post.

"How many guys have you been interviewing from us?!" grinned Van Dijk.

The champions hopes of retaining their title look even more remote after last weekend's 2-2 home draw with Crystal Palace, though only one team in the division is in better form at present, Man City having racked up 2.00 points-per game over their last eight fixtures.

United are 30 points behind Liverpool in fifth place.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær couldn't fault his United players despite struggling to impose themselves on the leaders. "Commitment is no issue at all".

"It's not because we have won the last two games", Guardiola said recently. "We then send everyone up to get the equalizer and they get the goal".

Jurgen Klopp has transformed his side from an underachieving top-flight team, who were 10th in the Premier League when he took over, to the world, European and now nearly certainly Premier League champions in the space of five years - truly remarkable. "They put you under pressure and you have to concentrate at the back".

Guardiola has a year remaining on his current deal with the reigning Premier League winners and has recently intimated that he "100 percent" intends to stay on as boss at the Etihad Stadium, but this assertion doesn't appear to be dissuading PSG from considering a massive contract to tempt him towards the French capital, according to reports.

City remain in second place in the table as Leicester City were beaten 2-1 at Burnley, despite taking the lead through Harvey Barnes.
