Kolarov warns Manchester City against domestic hangover after Monaco woe

Kolarov warns Manchester City against domestic hangover after Monaco woe

"It is impossible. We need to create a good environment to help him". Huge, talented players, English players and foreign players.

"[Against Liverpool] I expect a reaction from this team".

"But the quality is really high and they are at a good moment in the league".

The Reds are now fourth in the league table but are being closely chased by Arsenal and Manchester United, who have played less league games than Liverpool at this point in the season.

"The big difference coming here is that there are a lot of teams with lots of money and lots of good players".

This league advantage wasn't lost on Jurgen Klopp who highlighted Man City's expansive attacking style this season.

It was another major setback for City manager Guardiola, who had never before seen one of his teams knocked out before the Champions League quarter-finals.

The victory against City left them six points below leaders Chelsea, but they have won just three of their nine matches since and continue to fluctuate between bewitching and bewildering.

Though, the Reds head into the game in fine form and will look to extend their two-game winning streak, knowing a win would see them leapfrog the Sky Blues and Tottenham in the table- to second place- if the latter lose at home to Southampton this week. "I respect him a lot", Klopp said on Friday.

"With City, they're most unsafe with their wide players so if I'm picked to play, me and Millie have got a tough task to try and stop these wingers doing what they can do", he told

"I'm a bit down about it".

"It's real football and its hard to defend against them, [but] yes if you can win the ball there are a few spaces you can use".

"If you are passive against City you have no chance".

"To be active, you need to be fearless".

"They are a strong side and we have already faced them, but any team we get drawn with in Nyon will be a tough matchup".

Juventus star Gigi Buffon said he would like to avoid Leicester City in the Champions League quarter-finals.

But French right-back Sagna felt it was City's failure to match Monaco's desire that caused their meltdown.

City remain without long-term absentees Gabriel Jesus and Ilkay Gundogan.

Klopp is crossing his fingers Brazilian forward Roberto Firmino will prove his fitness in time.

Divock Origi is doubtful following illness, while injured duo Jordan Henderson and Daniel Sturridge will again miss out.

But Dejan Lovren (knee) is fit after playing 75 minutes for the club's under-23s on Monday and could take over from Ragnar Klavan in the heart of the Liverpool defence.
