Why Man City want to be more like Liverpool - Pep Guardiola

Why Man City want to be more like Liverpool - Pep Guardiola

"I do genuinely believe Liverpool have a chance to win the league, but the biggest obstacle is the potential tiredness of that front three". "I don't know what's going to happen".

The two sides meet for the first time this season on Sunday and will know that a win for either team will take them three points clear of each other at the top of the table.

What SHOULD be a cert, however, is a cracking contest between (in my opinion, lest some get upset!) the two best teams to watch and enjoy in the country.

"But we'll try again, knowing that they have a very good squad but we will go with 100 per cent, so we can try to get the three points".

Kompany said: 'Any team that makes that calibre of signing of Alisson or Virgil van Dijk will be stronger for the following season but the Premier League is improving all-round - go through every single team and I see them being stronger.

Sterling, 23, has been booed during each game at Liverpool since his acrimonious move to City in 2015.

It has worked wonders for Liverpool in the past and should Guardiola fail to find a solution, it could play in the home sides' hands.

Cardi B charged with Assault after alleged Strip Club Fight
Rapper Cardi B has turned herself in to police following an alleged fight at a strip club in the Queens borough of New York City . The rapper, whose legal name is Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, has been charged with reckless endangerment and assault.

Guardiola said on Friday playmaker Kevin De Bruyne, out since August with a knee injury, would be assessed ahead of the game.

"When you have a vision about the history of the Premier League and you start to compare it with them, to be closer with them, we should be so proud and we are. They are a top side".

Each meeting between the two club's in recent years has seen Firmino act as a personal body guard for Fernandinho, effectively meaning his national compatriot has been unable to receive the ball without the Liverpool forward's say-so.

On the City side of things, Sergio Aguero has been passed fit, and is [2.22], but bear in mind he has never scored at Anfield in 11 attempts for City and Atletico Madrid.

And Sky Sports pundit Neville says that he thinks it was a mistake to play all three forwards for nearly the full game against Napoli.

If Liverpool need to restore any confidence, they need only look back at their last three games against City -all wins. Then it can work. Looking back on last season, they were our bogey team.

Klopp was waiting to learn whether midfielder Naby Keita would be available after suffering a back spasm in Naples while forward Adam Lallana is back in full training following a groin problem.
