City are looking to reach the last four of the Champions League for the first time under Guardiola and face a potentially hard test having been drawn to face Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur in next month's quarter-finals.

"But I think the fans would go with the league, they want to retain that - they still haven't fallen in love with the Champions League because of the issues with Financial Fair Play and the amount of players you are allowed in the squad".

The last time the Premier League had four teams in the quarter-finals, in 2008/09, Barcelona beat the Old Trafford side 2-0 in the final in Rome.

A win for Liverpool will help them leapfrog Manchester City into top spot and Parker conceded facing Juergen Klopp's side was a daunting challenge.

The swashbuckling Liverpool of last season could have pushed themselves into big trouble against the resilient and ruthless Bayern, but the Reds showcased their own newfound experience in Europe by controlling large periods of the two matches and outperforming their illustrious opponents.

The weekend schedule opens on Saturday, with AFC Bournemouth hosting Newcastle United as +105 favorites, and Leicester City visiting Burnley FC as +145 chalk, while West Ham United looks to bounce back from a stunning 2-0 loss at Cardiff City as they host last-place Huddersfield Town sporting short -180 odds.

"To win trophies, you've got to win at least one or two really tough games", said Solskjaer. As the match entered stoppage time, and with Liverpool set to drop two valuable points, they won a penalty which Steven Gerrard coolly converted to send the travelling Kopites home in delight. "It's not by accident that three German clubs are eliminated by three English clubs".

Jurgen Klopp says that he does not have to spend big money to improve Liverpool further, but instead keep his current group together for a number of years. This was against West Ham, for whom Michail Antonio equalised on a night when Liverpool frustrated their travelling supporters at London Stadium.

At Fulham, the Reds have recorded eight victories and five losses - there is yet to be a draw at Craven Cottage in the Premier League era. They'll be glad that, after they host Manchester City at the end of this month, the loftiest team they'll face is seventh-placed Wolves.

Posted below are the matches in which he hasn't scored.
