Jose Mourinho has claimed Liverpool and Manchester City won’t have an easy task ahead of their Champions League quarterfinal.
The Reds are scheduled to host Mourinho’s former side Porto at the Anfield what is billed as the David vs Goliath encounter. Liverpool have been the side in form and the Portuguese side could be the weakest side they have faced in their Champions League run in.
On the other side, Tottenham Hotspur will open their European campaign at their new stadium against Pep Guardiola’s side. City are still competing on four fronts and will have a point to prove.
Mourinho said, “Of course City is a candidate to win the competition.
“But the first Champions League big night at the new [Tottenham] stadium I believe will be extra motivation for the whole Spurs family.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if Spurs give City a hard night.
“Liverpool will go for a victory
“They know last season 5-0 against Porto is out of context and almost impossible to repeat, but they will go for a victory and Porto of course wants a result to leave it open for the second leg like they did against Roma [in the last 16].”
