Liverpool must not sit on Champions League lead

(Ah Fat Talk Ball) - Liverpool must play their natural attacking game and not think defensively despite holding a 3-0 lead going into Tuesday's Champions League quarter-final second leg away to Manchester City on Tuesday, centre back Virgil van Dijk says.

Premier League leaders City were blown away by three goals in the opening 31 minutes at Anfield and suffered a further psychological blow on Saturday when losing 3-2 at home to their neighbours Manchester United after holding a 2-0 lead.

Van Dijk was speaking after an unusually bloodless Merseyside derby away to Everton earlier in the day finished 0-0.

An identical result in Manchester would comfortably qualify his team for the semi-final but he was a little disappointed with the performance at Goodison Park and is hoping for a positive approach on Tuesday.

Liverpool are hoping that Mohamed Salah, whose goal in the first leg was his 38th of the season, will be fit for the return.
