Sterling, Van Dijk among England’s player of year contenders

Liverpool's manager Jürgen Klopp celebrates after the 4-1 victory during the UEFA Champions League Quarter Final 2nd Leg match between FC Porto and Liverpool FC at Estádio do Dragão

Sterling, 24, has scored 17 Premier League goals and assisted 9 in City's quest to retain the title with a further five strikes in the Champions League.

The Reds' win on Sunday saw them reach 88 points for the season (a club-record tally), still with three games left to play.

Milner will be a Red Devil for a day.

"It's really massive. We spoke a lot about this game, how special it is, how special the situation is for the opponent", said Klopp, who bemoaned the dry state of Cardiff's pitch under baking temperatures.

Despite not having any influence on Manchester City's games, Van Dijk reiterated that Liverpool will have to win the remaining games to stand a chance against the Citizens for the league title. James Milner stepped up and wrapped things up for Klopp's side, who moved two points clear of City at the top of the table.

"We need everyone, we need all of the fans, and like today as well we had great support, so we will see how it ends".

"We'll be completely focused on Huddersfield".

If Neil Warnock's men are to defy the odds to stay up, it is upcoming games against already relegated Fulham and Crystal Palace they will need to win, but they did not make life easy for Liverpool.

"They are miles ahead of anybody these two teams (Liverpool and City)".

"But I am just being honest".

The visitors should have taken the lead midway through the first-half when their front three clicked together for the first time as Mohamed Salah fed Sadio Mane and the Senegalese's pass put Roberto Firmino clean through on goal.

Cardiff started by sitting deep and the visitors found it hard to break them down until Wijnaldum met Trent Alexander Arnold's corner with a powerful first-time strike.

With United playing rather badly compared to Liverpool, City could well find the game is a bit of a walk in the park, even if they are playing at the mighty Old Trafford ground rather than at home.

Cardiff defender Sean Morrison should have pulled a goal back for the hosts when he somehow completely missed a header when presented with an open goal as the ball hit his back.
