Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola defends 'exceptional' track record

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola defends 'exceptional' track record”

The Citizens now sit in third place and could move level on points with Tottenham, should they secure all three points. Liverpool has lost to Hull City and Leicester City in poor performances, but also owns impressive wins over Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal, two of their rivals for a Champions League place.

Jurgen Klopp's side were in the midst of a title challenge during the early parts of the season before a collapse left them in a fight to finish in the top four.

So, who has been selected for the clash? "If you don't get it, it doesn't mean you are bad or not the right person. But this was not our best game so, yes, if we want to stay where we are, then we need to win football games and we can't make the choice and say "yes or no we want to play this way", the German added. "I think exceptional other managers in the world sometimes don't win titles in a season", Guardiola said ahead of his side's home game with Liverpool on Sunday. There are still things we want to achieve.

Guardiola's maiden season has proved far more taxing than it appeared it would be in its formative weeks when City opened the campaign with 10 consecutive victories in all competitions.

Fitting, then, that the controversy is now coming full circle with Drake . "I'm off like mixtapes, I want to do a playlist". You might hear some tunes from the family (frequent collaborators) on there, but I'm just really excited.

Bell was suspended for three games at the start of this season for violating the league's substance abuse policy. Tough luck for Ava, but still a cool move on Bell's part.

A win for City could see them move four points clear of the Reds, with a game in hand, whilst Jürgen Klopp'smen have a chance to leapfrog City in the table and give their chances of Champions League qualification another massive boost.

"We all have to get used to it a little bit". Few guys can beat me at that. In that scenario, I can all but guarantee that Klopp will play Mane or Coutinho out of position as a so-called "false 9", but what he should do (IMO) is just take the plunge and play Ben Woodburn, or Toni Gomes up-front.

"I am really convinced about the circumstances and the basis we have". However, the City manager correctly pointed out that he never guaranteed success when he took over in a blaze of publicity at the Etihad Stadium a year ago. With goals galore scored for both teams this season and some possible defensive frailties, I can see both teams scoring over 2 goals.
