Pep Guardiola: I Didn't Come To City To Win Champions League

But still, experts believe, the Reds should pick up all three points from this game given they will be playing at Anfield.

However, the clean sheet Lloris kept in their home leg means if Spurs can find the net in Manchester, City would need three to go through.

Here, Sportsmail takes a look at each of the fixtures and assesses what could happen.

City centre-back John Stones said the side had "everything to play for" in their attempts to achieve the quadruple. To get close to doing that, City need a result at the Etihad.

Midfielder De Bruyne and England star Sterling signed for City within just over a month of each other in 2015 and have been at the forefront of the club's successful spell under Pep Guardiola.

The Belgian has established himself as one of the world's best midfielders in recent years and he was pivotal in City's march to the title last season. I see City advancing, and they could yet land two knockout blows to Tottenham's season. 'We're fighting for it every day. I thought you were going to be really distant and shy.

"What we want to do is collect as many points as possible, really".

"We spoke often with him on and off the pitch and we want the best". It isn't just in the Champions League that English teams have been dealt a tough hand.

Given the fact that Manchester City are still in all three competitions, Pep Guardiola is having a hard time managing his players.

Chelsea were given the runaround by Liverpool on Sunday afternoon and face Slavia Prague but the real issue comes for Arsenal.

The Spaniard is irked that Tottenham had more time to rest and prepare before both legs. "For me, to win a title with Tottenham is a massive dream".

They would be a point ahead of Liverpool and with the same number of games played.

"He sat with him and he thinks Liverpool are going to win it".

"When I see a player who can receive the ball and doesn't move to receive the ball, I don't like that because I cannot help them".

That is assuming all goes perfectly to plan. He couldn't be more different from what the tabloids were saying.

Again, defeat for City would be awful.

But he remains positive the title was still in City's hands to lose.

Where can I watch the City v Spurs Champions League match?

The Brazilian missed the win at Selhurst Park after he "finished badly" the defeat to Spurs at White Hart Lane five days earlier and the manager said he could be out again. It promises to be an exciting night in Manchester as one of these Premier League sides books their spot in the semifinals.
