It’s Liverpool against Manchester City for a place in this season’s Champions League semi-finals, and if Txiki Begiristain’s reaction is anything to go by, they’re more scared of us than we are of them!
The Reds have been in scintillating form for much of this season, and made an emphatic start to the knockout stages with a 5-0 thumping of Porto in the last 16.
Now set to face Premier League rivals City in what should be an intriguing all-English quarter-final, it seems Liverpool have scared the life out of City.
Just watch the priceless reaction of City sporting director Begiristain below as he contemplates coming up against Mo Salah and co. in the next round…

No wonder really, as we are, of course, the only team to beat City in the league this season in that epic 4-3 win at Anfield back in January.
Salah, Bobby Firmino and Sadio Mane cut Pep’s side to ribbons that day and only a late flourish from the visitors made it look a closer game than it actually was.
Of course City will be a huge challenge but if there’s one thing we can take from the Jurgen Klopp reign so far it’s that you can expect a performance in the biggest games, and don’t City just know it!
