Roberto Firmino 'in tears at reception from Liverpool fans'

AC Milan's Serie A meeting with Inter Milan at San Siro kicked off a fascinating week of derbies - one in which Manchester City can clinch the Premier League title.

City will seal the Premier League with six games to spare if they beat their bitter rivals at the Etihad Stadium, but being outplayed in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final on Wednesday did not represent ideal preparation. Both teams feature sides with great attacks although much has been made about both sides defences, which could only work well for the neutrals with goals expected to come by the plenty. Of course, it is not Liverpool, it is the people- it was not only one, only two, only three.

But the atmosphere turned sour when Premier League leaders City drove up to the stadium. United manager José Mourinho will have had an entire week to get his team fired up and might be able to postpone City celebrations for another week with the aid of his bus. Not overturning their 3-0 deficit against Liverpool, though, would leave them to pick up the pieces of another failed campaign in Europe.

While City lost today, Liverpool slumped to a goalless draw against Everton at Goodison Park.

Guardiola altered his normal formation and left Raheem Sterling on the bench, with midfielder Ilkay Guendogan brought into the starting line-up.

The issue with this comes from the fact that Walker would have to play higher up the pitch, leaving Laporte playing as a left-back to tuck inside to form a back three to negate any gaps in behind and thus leaving Sane completely isolated against Trent Alexander-Arnold. "We just have to be focused on what we have to do to win the game", he told a news conference.

City boss Pep Guardiola said after the game: "I didn't expect that".

The staggering deal will see Guardiola become the best-paid manager in the world after agreeing a one-year extension when he took his squad to meet owner Sheikh Mansour and chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarek in Abu Dhabi last month.

"You look at City players there, they will be shell-shocked".

Manchester City must wait to annex the Premier League title after an fantastic Paul Pogba-inspired fightback from two goals down saw their biggest rivals Manchester United earn a famous 3-2 win to ruin the Etihad Stadium´s dream party on Saturday.

But for Pep, this will be startlingly like his Bayern Munich tenure where his team ran rampant on the league but failed to achieve anything in Europe.

Club legend Darren Moore has been put in charge of first-team duties for the remainder of the season, and his first task will be to try get something out of Saturday's game when Swansea City visit The Hawthorns.
