EPL: Why it’s always difficult for Man City to play Liverpool – Guardiola

EPL: Guardiola sympathises with Lampard over sack from Chelsea

Manchester City head coach, Pep Guardiola, has insisted that it’s always difficult for his team to play against Liverpool because the Reds is a top club with history, players, managers and backroom staff.

Guardiola’s men will face Liverpool in a Premier League tie on Sunday evening at Anfield.

Man City head to the match after beating Burnley 2-0 in their previous Premier League clash on Wednesday.

Speaking at a pre-match press conference on Friday, Guardiola said: “Of course it would be important to win.

“If you beat Liverpool, United, – it is important to beat them, I cannot deny it. It’s always difficult against Liverpool.

“It’s a top club, top history, players, manager, backroom staff. Always difficult.”

He added, “It’s not about how many years (since City’s last win at Anfield), or whatever – there are 38 Premier League games – this is one more.

“Not long ago, we were 12th in the table, and now we are first. I am not concerned more about the Liverpool game more than the rest.”

The kick-off time for the match is 5:30 pm.
