Pep Guardiola: What I really think of Liverpool FC under Jurgen Klopp

  • Manchester City will keep their route into Anfield a secret this weekend reports

While City are seeking to consolidate themselves as the dominant force in English football by becoming the first side in a decade to retain the title, Klopp's task is to end Liverpool's near three-decade wait to win the league. After none of these games you go into the dressing room and think, "Now we know how to beat Manchester City", because there is no real way, no one thing that you have to do.

"We've had a good season so far", he said. "Even if they'd lost I'd say it was a good performance, but Napoli worries me".

Liverpool added £66million goalkeeper Alisson in the summer and are expected to mount a strong title challenge, with Sunday's visit of champions City viewed as an acid test of their credentials.

When asked if De Bruyne will be fit to face the Reds in the Premier League, Guardiola was concise in his reply: "We will see on Saturday".

India's teen batting prodigy Prithvi Shaw plunders West Indies on test debut
He reached his 20th half-century in Tests off 100 balls and all told, has so far counted four fours in a 137-ball innings. After Shaw and Cheteshwar Pujara added 206 runs for the second wicket, Virat Kohli too chose to join the run-fest.

'After today's game we have two weeks, then we go straight into games against Chelsea, in the Premier League, and Juventus, in the Champions League, with two recovery days in between, ' Mourinho said in his matchday programme notes ahead of the game against Newcastle at Old Trafford.

City defender Walker is hoping he and his team-mates can make a statement in the match, but acknowledges that Jurgen Klopp's side are serious challengers.

Defensive stability is something Liverpool have managed this season when you compare this team to last season's outfit.

The Reds beat City in three out of four meetings last season, including twice in the Champions League.

James Allison, Tasuku Honjo win Nobel Prize for cancer research
The discoveries led to greatly improved therapies for skin cancer, as well as cancers of the lung, head, neck, kidney and liver. Allison told a news conference he was in a "state of shock" hours after learning from his son that he had won a Nobel prize.

"I have a lot of respect for the way they play, how proactive are his teams are".

It would suggest Klopp will always have a better chance in a cup competition and Guardiola in a league format. When I see one player take the ball and dribble past three, four or five players and score the goal, it depends on him.

"So there's nothing better than playing these type of games".

"That's all we need to know".

Lionel Messi masterful as Barcelona punish short-handed Spurs at ragged Wembley
Barcelona ran out 4-2 winners in the end at Wembley but Spurs almost forced a famous comeback after clawing the game back to 3-2. After two games they are six points back but have two winnable games against PSV coming up.

In Brazilians Alisson and Ederson, these clubs have two of the best keepers in the Premier League, and I expect them to have busy afternoons. "But that's no problem; if you work hard, you earn it". The Guinean midfielder stayed overnight in a Naples hospital after suffering a back spasm.
