Three reasons that prove City are running scared of Liverpool

       A collection of the best goals scored when Liverpool face Manchester City in the Premier League

Ahead of their return this weekend, Guardiola said he hoped there would be no repeat of the ugly scenes that left them needing a replacement bus for the return journey.

Manchester City arguably have the best midfield in the Premier League, and the only possible way of beating them is stifling them for time and space, something Liverpool showed in the League and the Champions League outings last season.

But Guardiola bristles at suggestions that Klopp has got his measure and said: "Never when I play a manager do I have to beat him to get more satisfaction - I try to beat his team".

It didn't look too serious, so there's a chance but we don't know.

"I wouldn't sit here now and say, 'Yes, this is the game between the two big ones, United is not there any more, '" he said. "For Salah it was the first one so we will see in seven or eight years".




It is a unsafe approach with Klopp having a better record against Guardiola going back to their time when they were rivals at Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund - winning half of their 14 encounters and drawing two more.

"The problem (against Liverpool) in Premier League (last season) is that we conceded three goals in five or six minutes and we have to avoid doing that. They are much more proven winners than we are". "The intensity will not reduce, only increase as the season progresses, so I am very grateful and blessed to have a group of players who embrace the challenge and give their all to deliver for our club and supporters". The attacking thrust has been absent but Klopp effectively reiterated that form is temporary, class is permanent.

"'How good is he? They are top side and we try to be closer every time".

"Obviously, expectations changed, that's normal". He set completely new standards last year [for goalscoring], but for all the rest [of his game] it's what he did last year. "I don't think anyone would deny that considering what they did last season." . Each striker could write a book about these moments when you score without knowing how exactly it works, how you did it, with each ball in a ideal way and stuff like that.

"I am completely relaxed. 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". "It is a completely normal situation, nothing to worry about and I am relaxed about it".
