Manchester City boss Guardiola says team are "alive" ahead of Liverpool clash


"They [players] know that they have to be here on time".

City would go on to be runaway Premier League champions, while Liverpool would lose in the Champions League final, but - thanks to the football served up by Guardiola and Klopp - their clashes were among the highlights of the campaign.

"It's a long time ago Man City was able to win at Anfield". It will be a really tough game, but we know that and we will try to do a good game'.

And their fans were relaxed enough for a cheeky chant of "Jose Mourinho.we want you stay" in a dig at rivals Manchester United.

Their next Champions League match is away to Hoffenheim on Tuesday and Pep Guardiola may well revert to the side that won 3-0 at home to Fulham before the Lyon tie, which would mean David Silva replacing Ilkay Gundogan as the only change from the starting line-up at Cardiff.

Third Accuser: No 'Human Being Should Treat People' The Way Kavanaugh Behaved
Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, Kavanaugh said he doesn't know who Swetnick is and "this never happened". The behavior included grabbing girls and fondling them without their consent, she alleged.

City's manager denied there was any disciplinary problem with Mendy, who has a foot injury, but said: "He arrived late, and that shouldn't happen but it does sometimes".

"Our positional game was fantastic and we didn't concede much in shots, and we did it so good". The 22-year-old didn't start any of City's first four Premier League games and was left out of the squad all together for the clash with Newcastle on September 1.

City enjoyed 80 per cent of possession and had seven times as many shots as the Seagulls, who only have five points to show from their first seven games but have impressed in a tricky early run of fixtures. I love to win, but getting a point at Chelsea is good anyway.

"Having said that, we have the best chance of picking up the majority of our points outside the top six, and we have to do that".

Looking worthy of the extravagant fee his purchase required both at the start of this and last season, Mendy has yet to put a sustained number of appearances together in a City shirt.
