Jurgen Klopp's men were recently ousted from the FA Cup by fellow EPL side Wolverhampton Wanderers after losing 2-1 to the Foxes earlier this week.

They have also crashed out of the EFL Cup in the earlier rounds but now have just the Premier League and Champions league to focus on.

"When Wigan put us out of the FA Cup last season I was sad. Since I arrived, we take the cups seriously. If everyone is fit, we can cope with it."

Kop fans are hoping to end their 29 year title drought with Guardiola's men participating in more competitions.
