    would have liked us to meet/to have met

    Is there a difference between the meanings of:
    1-Yesterday, he would have liked you and I to meet.
    and:
    2-Yesterday, he would have liked you and I to have met.


    Does 2 imply that he would have liked the meeting to have taken place before yesterday?

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    (Not a Teacher)

    They both mean the same thing to me. Personally, I'd put 'yesterday' at the end of the sentence.

    ...and it's essential that you change I to me.
