The players will be very much excited to get a chance to play in the big match like this. It is match to show the class of a player.
The match will make someone hero of the match. Many stars could have born in such a big match. The team who will win this match, will represent one side from England in the Semifinal of the Champions League. Both the sides consist of some star players. It will be a battle in all the positions of the field. Ederson Moraes and Karius both are two emerging Goalkeepers of the Premier League.
The battle will be highly interesting between the attack of Liverpool with the defense of Manchester City. The attacking trio of Liverpool, Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane are in the form of their life. They are destroying the opponents with ease with their playing style. They are combining really well and it will be a big test for the defense of Manchester City to stop the attacks of Liverpool.

The result of the previous match between these two sides will give the whole Liverpool side a mental boost up ahead of their clash against Manchester City in the second leg.
The defensive problems will surely haunt Jurgen Klopp ahead of a big match like this. He will expect that his defenders will not commit the same mistakes as before.
Team News :
Alberto Moreno could be missing for this game, due to an injury problem. Otherwise, Klopp will have the full squad in his hand to play.

Mane, Salah and Firmino will start in the attacking line for Liverpool against City.
