Liverpool travel to Manchester City tonight knowing an away goal all but ends the tie.

The Reds played arguably their best 90 minutes of football under Jürgen Klopp during the 3-0 first-leg win and will want to be just as professional this time around with a place in the semi-finals up for grabs.

Klopp has big decisions to make. Does he set his side up to defend or does he go for the killer blow and look to hit Manchester City early on?

Mohamed Salah is expected to be fit enough to start after missing the derby while Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andrew Robertson, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Roberto Firmino should all return to the side after sitting out the 0-0 draw with Everton on Saturday.
