Jurgen Klopp is unsure if Manchester Citys exit from the Champions League boosts the Sky Blues chances of retaining the Premier League title.

Liverpool are top of the table heading into the weekends fixtures and City, who have a game in hand over the Reds, play Tottenham at the Etihad.

Cardiff have to get something from the game and Klopp warned his players they must be wary of set-pieces.
