Liverpool v Manchester City

Jose Mourinho

"They are so strong". We want to show a reaction. "They have a great habit of winning trophies, certainly early in a new manager's reign".

"It makes them the biggest force at the moment - together with PSG - in world football".

Pep Guardiola says the onus is on Liverpool to ensure Manchester City's bus is not attacked ahead of this weekend's top-of-the-table Premier League clash.

Beating Manchester City could be "massive" for Liverpool's season after three games without a win, according to Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Midfielder Naby Keita suffered a back injury in Liverpool's 1-0 midweek defeat to Napoli, but remains on course to face Pep Guardiola's side.

"Liverpol should be upset, not me", said Guardiola.




"It is not that when I faced teams of Pep Guardiola I had a team of names that nobody knew and I had only met them the day before".

Opta tell us that Klopp's record of seven wins against Guardiola is unprecedented - no other coach has bested the Catalan schemer more often.

"We have to defend when they are better, we have to defend but not in the mentally approach - first because it's boring, secondly because we didn't build the team in that way, to propose to be active, to be ourselves, and always what I want from my teams in these kind of games". If we would not entertain the people, why would we play it then? Yes they had more chances, we didn't have a shot on target. "But one thing was we had five minutes of madness at Anfield when we conceded twice. After none of these games you go into the dressing room and think, "Now we've got it, now we know how to beat Manchester City"," insisted Klopp. Most prominently, Carragher is seen busy covering Premier League matches and talking about analytical stuff.

Liverpool FC, though, have failed to win their last three games in all competitions to falter after an impressive start to the current campaign. "It's so rare when it happens like that; 98 per cent of a striker's career is the hardest work and only two per cent is the kind of easy going stuff".

Klopp, comparing Liverpool's battle for supremacy with City alongside the famous tennis rivalry between Germans Becker and Michael Stich, believes his side might not be top dogs just yet - but they soon can be.
