Pep Guardiola Responds To The Forth-Coming Great Battle Against Liverpool On 16th.

The mighty forth-coming battle between England Giants, Liverpool, and Man City this coming weekend.

Klopp had already disclosed his pattern of defeating Guardiola’s side, he claims the confidence of playing hard


against them.

However, Pep Guardiola gallantly dismissed the idea of Manchester City traditionally struggling when playing Liverpool at Anfield due to the gigantic atmosphere generated by the home crowd.

Man City will travel to Merseyside on Sunday looking to keep up the pressure on league leaders Arsenal, and they will come up against a Liverpool side that has endured a rocky start to the season.

Jurgen Klopp’s side sits 13 points adrift of the Blues – albeit with a game in hand – having won just two of their opening eight league outings.

While City has twice to Liverpool in 2022, once in the FA Cup semi-final in April and then in the Community Shield in August, Guardiola’s side are undefeated against the Reds in the Premier League for almost three years.

During that time City recorded their first league win at Anfield since 2003, a 4-1 win in February 2021 to help City on their way to winning the title.

That match was played behind closed doors due to Covid-19 regulations at the time, prompting some to suggest that City crumble when faced with the intimidating atmosphere of Anfield.

That certainly appeared to be the case when City lost there twice in early 2018, and the fact that Liverpool has not lost a home league match in front of a crowd since April 2017 has added further weight to the Anfield legend.

However, when speaking to the press on Friday Guardiola dismissed the idea that a raucous home crowd would in any way sway the result.

“Of course, the crowd is involved but basically it [City struggling at Anfield] is because they have a good team,” Pep said.

“It’s one of the biggest atmospheres, the nicest ones and it is a joy to be there to be part of these games. But it is a football game and Liverpool is important because of the quality they have.”

It is because of that quality that Guardiola and his players know they will have to be on top form, regardless of Liverpool’s struggles this term.

“You have to behave at the top level, especially off the ball, for second balls many many things. At Anfield, winning or losing we always behave with incredible personality there.

“I don’t look at good moments or bad moments, I analyze a team always expecting the best of them. Nothing changes the opinion I have about them.”
