While Van Dijk said it showed how much of a threat the Reds posed to the defending champions, he felt greater consistency over the course of the season would be the key to a title challenge.

That's why I say, going away is not a big problem, but now you call a manager of any country and ask him to leave out one or two players and he says: 'I am under pressure as well, ' because now it's Nations Cup.

They are preparing for a behind-closed-doors UEFA Nations League clash with Croatia on Friday.

"We made it hard for them and they made it hard for us at times but that's how it is".

Pep Guardiola's side played some of the most dominating football in Europe last season and nearly everyone feels the Citizens will be able to replicate that this year too.
