Mohamed Salah trains with Liverpool to boost Man City appearance hopes

"So, all we can do is know we are going to try and we will see".

"Only two teams in the history of the Champions League have overturned a 3+ goal deficit from the first leg in the knockout stages - Deportivo v AC Milan in 2004 and Barcelona v PSG 12 months ago".

Pep Guardiola's side let a two-goal lead slip to blow the chance of securing the Premier League title against their bitter rivals and Fernandinho admitted that it has been a hard week.

"Man City like a wounded animal with nothing to lose " An ordinary season - or a way of reigniting it?

That scenario is unlikely to happen ever again - it was a special moment for them but the chance is gone now, and this has turned into their toughest period of the season. I've dropped a lot of Champions League games in the space of 10 or 15 minutes.

Manchester City are in the top spot in the EPL, but on Saturday lost 2-3 to cross-town rival Manchester United after squandering a 2-0 first-half lead. City conceded their six goals in the past two games during a pair of intense short spells and Guardiola said they have to be ready to deal with adversity.

"What we have done this season is fantastic and we have a chance to go through in the Champions League". "Right now this is the most important game for us and then we will think about the derby [against SS Lazio]". "Guile and Cynicism' But he said his side needed to show more guile and cynicism than they have been doing recently".

Mohamed Salah has given Liverpool a massive boost by taking part in training ahead of their Champions League last-16 second leg clash against Manchester City on Tuesday.

Real Madrid, Barcelona, you name it - they could turn up there, have a bad day and get pumped 3-0. Guardiola's side gave up a two goal lead in that game and they know that even a single slip-up against Liverpool will make their task of progressing to the semi-finals nearly impossible. City have the ability to score early and often and, just like Liverpool, they only know one way to play: attack, attack, attack. The high pressure, the intensity in the game was unbelievable, they nearly did it for 90 minutes. That is the best way to play.
