What has been said?
Man City boss Pep Guardiola: “When you play against teams like Liverpool you always have moments where you have to suffer. We know it. We have to do it and try to play to our strengths as much as possible.
“We know each other quite well. We have played many times. I don’t expect a game of 90 minutes where we will be there, or where they will be there for 90 minutes. There will be ups and downs.
“We have to be stable in the bad moments and, in the good moments, take our good chances and be clinical.
“It’s always nice to play against the strongest teams and last year they were stronger. They are an exceptional team, they have had the same manager for a long time and it is nice to face him all the time to improve our level.”

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp: “They play a specific way, they are pretty dominant, but if they have to counter-attack they are pretty strong so they have speed and creativity and that is not so cool when the other team has that and make it pretty tricky.
“And that is why I said it, it is 100 per cent like this, I don’t think anybody else would see differently apart from a few journalists who always react on a moment, ‘ah, but in a moment they are this or that’.
“But actually they are in really good shape. If you don’t use all your chances that can cause you a problem results-wise but for me it is important that they had all these chances because that is what I have to think about and not if they finish them off or not because I know they will finish them off from a specific point.
“We just have to make sure it doesn’t happen on Sunday and they will not have that many.”
