Pep Guardiola has urged his Manchester City players to go out and play the "perfect" game against Liverpool as they look to overturn a 3-0 deficit from the first leg and reach the UEFA Champions League semifinal. "Concede few chances. Defend well with our goalkeeper making saves", Guardiola said. "Of course to go through you have to make the flawless game, create chances, be clinical, concede few chances, all the conditions have to be ideal", said the Spaniard.
"It was a tough week for us, two defeats in a week but that's in the past already", he added. "We have 90 minutes and in football anything can happen".
"It always helps if you know about the problems, you deal with the problems but if we concede a goal nothing changes". That's why we are here and not thinking about who is now favourite or whatever. "But if we are not able to cope with that psychologically, it will be a good lesson for the future". We have very often created a lot of chances in short period of time and we have to be clinical. "Then we have to wait for the reaction until tomorrow and then we'll make a decision".
City's humbling in the first leg at Anfield last Wednesday was followed by another capitulation as they surrendered a two-goal lead to lose 3-2 to rivals Manchester United in their derby on Saturday.

He recalled the contributions of the founder leaders who formed the right wing party "with the aim and ideology of "nation first". He said: " Hamari hardik iccha hain ki woh saath mein rahein (It is our heartfelt wish that they stay with us)".
Guardiola said: "We know each other".
"What this club has done in the last 10 years in terms of creating awesome facilities with a lot of investment, sooner or later it is going to happen".
"They need to come at us, but we want to play our game".
Raheem Sterling and Co were pictured driving into City's training base on Tuesday morning despite the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final not kicking off until 7.45pm. "I hope we can do our job".

The German manager though believes that the job is far from over given the fact that Liverpool will be playing at the home of the team that are so close to winning the Premier League title.
But while the City boss is quite rightly hailed as a footballing genius, the praise for Klopp can be less forthcoming - with the assumption being the brand of football he plays is less complex, while his over-the-top technical-area antics often detract from a more rounded assessment of his tactics.
Judging by their 3-2 defeat to United on Saturday, there's clearly something not right with City.
