Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho warns his team to be more ready after Manchester City’s Champions League exit. The Brazilian believes that City would be more focused to win their Sunday clash as the citizens will now purely set their sights only on Premier League.

Liverpool will travel to Etihad to play against City as both the teams are determined to stay alive in the top four race which will help them to Champions League next season.

The citizens are currently in the third position in the league table and are level with Tottenham who play Southampton on Sunday. While, Liverpool are just one point below City in the fourth position.

A win for the Reds would see them leapfrog Manchester City but it will not be an easy task for Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool as their title rivals are one of the hardest to beat at home.

The clash is set to be very crucial for both the teams as Champions League spot can be at stake depending on the result of the game and Coutinho is wary of the threat Manchester City carries ahead of the high profile game at Etihad on Sunday.

“It’s going to be a very ­important game,” said Coutinho. “City is one of the big clubs in England, no doubt about that, and right now we are in a race with them for second place in the table. We need to win it.

“After being knocked out of the Champions League they will be even more focused on the Premier League, so we have to be ready.

“For us, this match is like a final because we have to beat them to move ahead of them in the table. That’s our aim.”
