Key quotes

Manuel Pellegrini: "We talked yesterday and today about what we must do tomorrow. We’re not going to play with the score we got in Kyiv, we’re just going to say it’s 0-0 and try to win the game tomorrow. That’s how we approach it.

"The most important thing is to know we have not qualified already. We play against a big team who know how to play this type of game. That’s the first target, then we see who we’d play in the next round. With the trust and confidence, we continue."

Raheem Sterling: "At crucial moments we've been hit with injuries and that has been unfortunate, but we should be looking to push on in the Champions League and not just aim for the quarter final but look further beyond that, and hopefully the final. That’s the reason why I came here - to try and be a part of a team that’s pushing for big tournaments like this."

Kyiv manager Sergio Rebrov: "What can we do? We have to concentrate, we have to work very hard, we have to be a team. At least no.1, we must be a team. They have lots of good players but we must be a team and that’s the most important thing."

Andriy Yarmolenko: "The team mood is OK, normal, good – we have arrived to play and we came not just to play but to win. Of course when we lost at home 3-1, we don’t have too much chance to proceed but we are optimistic and prepared to show good football which the supporters will like."
