Guardiola: 'Salah, Mane And Firmino Almost Unstoppable'

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has described Liverpool's attacking front-three as "almost unstoppable" ahead of their UEFA Champions League showdown.
City face a quarterfinal first leg at Anfield on Wednesday - the only stadium in which they have lost in the English Premier League this season.

Liverpool forwards Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mané and EPL leading scorer Mohamed Salah all netted in the 4-3 victory in January and Guardiola says his side will have to be at their absolute best to stop them.
"Not just [Salah], Mané and Firmino, all three, they are almost unstoppable. They are fantastic, fantastic players," Guardiola told a news conference after City's 3-1 victory over Everton on Saturday.

"The way Liverpool plays is so complicated for us. We know that. They are so quick, they are so good and it is tough, but it is [the] quarterfinal of UEFA Champions League so we cannot expect, in that level, something is going to be easy.

"We play against ourselves and say 'that is the target, we have to overcome.' We will be able or not able to overcome that. If we are able, okay, semifinals. If we are not able, congratulations Liverpool and next season we will be back stronger but we are going to try."
