Pep Guardiola wants perfection from Manchester City against Liverpool

Van Dijk hails 'complete manager' Klopp

City host the Reds in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final tonight facing a monumental task to overhaul a 3-0 aggregate deficit following last week's humbling at Anfield. "The chances we receive, we have to defend well", said Guardiola, who saw his side suffer another defeat in last weekend's Manchester derby.

Guardiola said City had to be at their best on Tuesday when they are to host Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium, reports Efe.

"To go through you have to make nearly the ideal game", Guardiola said.

"We can not forget it is a simple game - just focus on every single minute. If we concede a goal, don't give up", he said. "And if we are not clinical, okay, next one, next one, next one". Then after that the second one... "Our situation is not the easiest situation in world football, we are not flying with a full squad, but we stick together and we want to go as far as possible". "This is a new one".

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.

"The officers and stewards are there to protect the public and keep them safe. I hope we can do our job". "In that team, 100 per cent yes", declared Jenas.

"He is a fantastic team manager and player manager as well". I am so delighted to lose the way we lose against United.

"It is a joy to be manager of that team, even two days ago, after the way we played".

"Now's the time for experienced players to take over and take charge". That was without Sergio Aguero, Kevin De Bruyne and Gabriel Jesus on the pitch.

Liverpool beat off competition from City to sign Van Dijk for £75 million ($106 million) in January from Southampton, six months after their first attempt to land the Dutchman failed.

With Joel Matip injured, Dejan Lovren will partner Virgil van Dijk at the heart of the Liverpool defence and the Croatian worldwide needs to replicate his Anfield form in order to stop City from getting on the score sheet. So they know they're capable of scoring goals against the Jurgen Klopp's attack-minded team.

But for me, having played in games that have gone the same way, it was not a case of City being found out, or switching off - more that it just wasn't their day.
