Liverpool vs Manchester City predictions & preview

Pep Guardiola explained how Man City looked to slow down the game at Anfield, as he believes Liverpool could be "the best team in the world" on the break.

"Today was a game full of respect, both teams respected each other a lot". Despite having missed four of his previous seven Premier League penalties, Mahrez shrugged off the claims of Gabriel Jesus but blasted his kick high over the bar. That is why I have so much credit for what we have done. "Of course Liverpool fans want him to play bad, and he doesn't want to play bad, he wants to play good", said Guardiola.

'I watched it because I wanted to get the rebound but I was very happy that it didn't go in.

However, with Guardiola short of options at the back with auxiliary left-back Fabian Delph also ruled out by injury, Mendy has been given the chance to make amends.

The point allowed City to regain top spot from Chelsea, who had briefly taken over after their win over Southampton earlier in the day, but their opponents dropped to third.

"I would not like to speak about the referees, about the decisions", Guardiola said when asked by Pro Soccer Talk. "In that situation they are much better", added the Spaniard.

As she spoke, several hundred anti-Kavanaugh demonstrators chanted on the lawn between the Capitol and the Supreme Court. The reason? By doing so, she will allow fellow Republican Sen. "We showed her all of the correspondence", Bank said.

The Spanish manager did not make many changes after last season's record-breaking campaign, with Riyad Mahrez the only major signing and Yaya Toure the only first-team player to depart. The Champions League exit to the Reds in April was one of the rare occasions when the City boss has chosen to try to tame the opposition, rather than steamroller them using his own attacking principles. We played so well so if you want to analyse the result it was OK. They are incredibly good and incredibly quick, but we controlled the game well - we just didn't create.

Premier League title favorites Liverpool and Manchester City can usually be relied on to provide open and expansive games with goals aplenty. "Liverpool were an excellent team last season and since then they have bought some more incredible players to fight against us". He touched Sane more than the ball, so it's a penalty.

Speaking about Mahrez, he said: "He had the courage and the balls to take the penalty, in training he shoots ideal penalties but sometimes it happens". To respond is really important when the next opponent is Manchester City.

"The reason why last season he didn't play was for another reason".

"We hope that they come back healthy and play these easy competitions - the Premier League, the Champions League and all this".
