Liverpool, Man City dominate PFA Player of the Year nominations

Liverpool and Manchester City have dominated the shortlist for the Professional Footballers' Association Player of the Year award, with Virgil Van Dijk and Raheem Sterling the leading contenders for the prize.

"We have discussed various scenarios", said Dutch FA (KNVB) technical director Eric Gudde on its website

"You have a clear idea it is going to be good for you and you are going to move forward and it is going to be a big boost - the decision we can now tell everyone was right but the moment we took the decision people were critical of us".

"We're not optimistic but you know Harry Kane and with Harry Kane all is possible".

"I know people like to be disrespectful to a team like Porto, but we knew how hard it is and we won 2-0 at home, it was deserved, and here anything could have happened", Klopp said.

It took Foden five minutes to head into the net, sealing a 1-0 victory that returned City to the top of the league, a point ahead of Liverpool with four games remaining.

After losing 4-3 on the night, they progressed with a 4-4 aggregate score on a memorable evening in Manchester.

Aguero and Mane have scored 19 and 18 goals respectively in the league whilst Silva has contributed a combined 13. Three points separate them from sixth-placed United, who have played one game fewer.

Pochettino also revealed how he went from "thinking very bad things" to "being alive again".

Of De Bruyne, Guardiola said: "I don't know - he's played a lot of minutes without preparation". No, he only congratulated me and shook hands and said see you Saturday again.

"The situations that are happening in every single game we are watching, like yesterday Barcelona against Manchester United, it was a penalty, not a penalty?"

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has hailed his side's progression into the Champions League semi finals as a "reward from the universe".

He said: "Both teams have incredible players with heart and personality".

"You know that we left yesterday everyone is happy but a little bit exhausted too", he added.

"Of course it's going to be tough now because Tuesday we have a tough game, and Saturday, and the semi-final of the Champions League against Ajax. We are going to fight and see at the end".

"The group phase, sometimes you get a little bit lucky, sometimes your opponent is not as good as expected, sometimes you are lucky in the last-16 draw".
