“I Am Not Afraid Of Liverpool” – Pep Guardiola Speaks Ahead Of Sunday’s Clash
Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has said that he was not afraid of Liverpool, ahead of their trip to Anfield this Sunday.
City have lost their last three encounters with Jurgen Klopp’s men.
They were beaten twice by Liverpool in the quarter-finals of last season’s Champions League, while they also lost 4-3 at Anfield in the Premier League in January.
City have not won at Anfield since May 2003, a run of 17 games in all competitions, but Guardiola said he expects his team to fight for a result.
“I believe too much in that team, in those guys.
“I know how they fight. Go to Anfield, win, lose, whatever. It’s a long time ago Man City was able to win at Anfield. What I want to see is the team alive, and we are alive.
“If they beat us three times, they are a good side. They lost the first game in the Carabao Cup [against Chelsea last week] but at Anfield they score a lot of goals, they don’t concede.
“Now it’s Hoffenheim [on Tuesday in the Champions League], and after that we are going to prepare [for Liverpool], and after that we’re going to prepare for Burnley. At the end, we’re going to see what happened at the end of the season,” he told ESPN.
