Pep Guardiola does not think Liverpool's title challenge will be affected by their Champions League defeat at Barcelona.

Liverpool were beaten 3-0 at the Nou Camp in the first leg of their semi-final in midweek.

They now need to refocus on the Premier League with a trip to Newcastle, for their penultimate fixture, on Saturday evening.

Victory would take the Merseysiders back to the top of the table ahead of City's clash with Leicester on Monday.

City boss Guardiola said: "I think the game was incredibly good, both sides were incredible. Liverpool were outstanding.

"It was an incredible game, I enjoyed a lot watching it. I don't think it will affect them really, they fought a lot for this season.

"I think it will be not easy at Newcastle - like Leicester will not be - but they will be well prepared to win there."
