Liverpool vs Manchester City Preview

Liverpool vs Manchester City Preview

Pep Guardiola: "He's a guy who tries to play forward, no fear, courage and they play at Anfield".

For City, Gabriel Jesus (knee) is close to his comeback from injury but Captain Vincent Kompany remains out.

"Yes, there was interest - Manchester United, yes, they were interested a year or a year and a half before, but it didn't feel right", he said.

Back when the Reds ruled English football and City lurched from one division to another, such a poor record was hardly a phenomenon.

"Liverpool are one of the few sides around for whom, given a fair wind, beating Manchester City at their own game seems even a possibility". Sadio Mane was sent off for a high challenge on Ederson which created great controversy in the following days, but nothing could be taken away from the Sky Blues, who were scintillating and ruthless in their performance.

"City's record at Anfield is poor - just one win since 1981 - but Guardiola's side are showing week by week that records are there to be broken".

Non of the other top six are likely to be interested in the striker and clubs below that wouldn't have such money to spend on an out of form player, especially given his wages are also £150k-a-week.

Asked about City's Anfield curse, Guardiola said: "I don't believe in these kind of things, but of course the last time City won was 15 years ago, so it means a lot in terms of how hard and complicated it is to play there. You need to show up".

"If we start to go down, and lose confidence, and don't play well regularly, then we will see". It is always a big challenge to improve and see on the bigger stages if we can handle the way we are.

"Anything can happen. I think City now have a better team than they had in the past. You must not think a lot about it because you can't control it". City haven't won at Anfield since 2003, although you've got to remember what City were like back then, they're not the team they are now that's for sure.

Manchester City attacker Leroy Sane has revealed that he twice snubbed the opportunity to play under Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.

Since losing to Tottenham on October 22, Liverpool are unbeaten in 17 matches in all competitions and 13 in the league, their best run under Jurgen Klopp. The runaway league leaders haven't lost in England all season, while Liverpool haven't lost a match anywhere for almost three months.

City look nailed on to be crowned champions for the first time in four years, having dropped only four points all season.

In an interview with Phil Thompson ahead of Liverpool's enormous match against Manchester City, Klopp once again confirmed Manchester United's approach.
