Manchester City defender Benjamin Mendy heaps praise on manager Pep Guardiola

  • Liverpool are better than last season, says Silva

"He [Salah] is younger and it was his first year back in England since his time at Chelsea, so we will see in the future", said Guardiola ahead of Sunday's fixture at Anfield.

They have won the past three matches between the sides, their 4-3 victory in January at Anfield being probably the best Premier League game of last season, and both legs of the Champions League quarter-final between them.

"In the Champions League, the first game we made a good performance except at the end of the first half. But that's really an important thing and that's why we have to try to create constantly or as often as possible". I think they're better this season, as the results tell.

Goals seem to be on the agenda when these two meet and while both teams to score looks a good option, I don't see much value in the price at around [1.56] despite thinking it may well occur, I think I would prefer to look elsewhere for a bet.

"They're an aggressive team, they're doing well".

"I think that's why he can get on the ball inside the opposition's box where there's lots of bodies, where the touch has to be so good to get your shot away or make that killer pass". They are right. So we won the Premier League. "We hope we can finish that (unbeaten) run".

The pair's fierce but amicable rivalry stretches back to 2013 when Guardiola was in charge at Bayern Munich and Klopp was at Borussia Dortmund.

These two managers have faced off 14 times, with Klopp registering eight wins compared to Guardiola's five, while only clash has ended in a draw.

"I don't play against Jurgen".

"He's an excellent manager".

Aymeric Laporte played on the left-side of the defence during the 2-1 win at Hoffenheim in midweek but he could move in to a more central role alongside Nicolas Otamendi.

"I didn't want to lose at Napoli but, if you ask me which is the best preparation mood wise, it's losing a game".

With Jordan Henderson likely to take his place in the midfield three, that energy and pressing will be lost to a deeper and more reserved player.

The biggest news this week is that Kevin De Bruyne returned to full training this week, over a month earlier than had been previously expected.
