Liverpool travel to Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-final second leg tonight

That is according to former Liverpool and Norway left-back John Arne Riise.

Jurgen Klopp’s side take a 3-0 lead into the match after the impressive first-leg win at Anfield last Wednesday.

Riise admits he was surprised at the comfortable nature of Liverpool’s win and expected more from Manchester City.

“I expected the high intensity and the pressure from the Liverpool side but I expected the City side to have more of the ball, control the game more,” he told Sky Sports.

But Riise has warned Liverpool an early goal this evening could contribute to a miraculous comeback from Pep Guardiola’s side.

Riise was part of the Reds team that won the 2005 Champions League final after coming from three goals down against AC Milan, so he knows anything is possible.

“What I would say is Liverpool always seem to score no matter who they play against,” he added.

“If they score one goal, (City need) five.

“I’ve been 3-0 down before myself and one goal can change so much.

“If you score an early goal you get the crowd going, the fans going and the players going. It could change.”

Top-scorer Mohamed Salah looks set to return from the groin injury he suffered in the first leg.
