The second round of Man City vs Liverpool is here and it will be live on talkSPORT.

The two best teams in English football, perhaps even in Europe, faced off last Sunday and it did not disappoint.

The tantalizing clash ended 2-2 to leave the Premier League title race on a knife edge as their rivalry, albeit friendly, continues to escalate.

We get a repeat of that game on Saturday, but this time in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley.

Liverpool are still in for the treble, while Man City can still achieve the treble… but that will change by Saturday night.

Man City vs Liverpool: team news

City held off Atletico Madrid in the Champions League but it came at a cost as Kyle Walker and Kevin De Bruyne both limped off.

With the likes of Ruben Dias still injured, it left Pep Guardiola a bit short of numbers.

“We played three days ago, now we have a lot of injuries, I don’t know what will happen in the next few weeks,” he said.

Jurgen Klopp, however, has afforded himself the luxury of being able to eliminate Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah from the starting XI to face Benfica.

There were minor concerns over Diogo Jota and Salah but Klopp insisted they should be fine.

“Diogo took a knock in the first half, that’s what I know,” he told reporters.

“About Mo, I don’t really know, no one has told me yet. I changed with two physios, nobody told me that Mo had a problem.

“For now, everyone should be fine.”

Man City vs Liverpool: what was said?

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp insists his side must treat every game, including Saturday’s game, as a cup final as they seek to achieve an unprecedented treble.

“It has to be treated like a final, we have to do it,” Klopp said. “In an ideal world we have 12 games, that means the 10 rounds we treat as finals.

“It’s pretty much like that and that’s how we’ve approached it since January since we started this little mission. You have to go all-in.

“Now imagine if we were playing against City and we thought: ‘Yeah, maybe we can (do) a little less there, there a little less’. No.

“Anyway, against City you always have to see it as a final, but now it’s the semi-final, that means it’s the only way to get to the final and we really want to go there. to go.”
