It sounds like we go there and we are more likely to win the game then they are.

"I can feel what they feel - the Liverpool players".

Manchester City host Liverpool on Thursday in a match which could have enormous significance in the destination of the Premier League trophy this season.

It's being billed as the game of the season, and it's easy to see why.

"I have a feeling everyone can beat us but also that we can beat everyone".

Guardiola has already labelled it a must-not-lose game for his team, stating the title race would be finished should City slip 10 points adrift.

The street had been closed to traffic at the time because large crowds were expected in the area for New Year's Eve celebrations. But it was unclear whether he was making a statement against the death penalty in general or was targeting a specific execution.

In short, Liverpool's style really gets to City, while City's is probably its least effective against a team that plays like Liverpool.

The Reds remain unbeaten this season and have won each of their last nine league games, whereas City have lost three of their last five outings - as many defeats as they suffered in their previous 70.

Pep Guardiola's side are now on a four-game winless streak against Klopp's Liverpool, with the goalless draw at Anfield ending a run of three consecutive defeats in all competitions - including two in the Champions League en route to Liverpool's runners-up finish.

But in a handful of games Pep has made crucial changes to how we set up and the roles of the players - like at Anfield against Liverpool last season in the Champions League.

"That's why we have the amount of points, that's why we had the results".

"It is one of the most hard games you can play in the modern football world, away at City", Klopp said. A year ago we beat them 5-0 here - but it doesn't count now.

This will be quite the duel as one of the world's best strikers comes up against arguably the world's best defender. It's the third of January, it's a very important game for both teams and I would use it as motivation for the other team'.

Guardiola has preferred Danilo to Kyle Walker at right-back for Man City in recent games, but both are trumped in this team by Trent Alexander-Arnold, who continues to go from strength to strength for Liverpool.

"That's what we will try to do, it's what we try to do every game".

A win for Liverpool would see them take a huge step towards their first English title in 29 years.

"We didn't win it, yes, but not 20 teams in the past reached the Champions League final".

Fernandinho's return to full fitness was a boon for Pep Guardiola last weekend as the Brazilian worldwide was crucial in maintaining City's control in midfield.
