Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola has revealed that he and his team are not scared of Liverpool as both sides prepare to meet at Anfield next Sunday.
Liverpool are unbeaten in league winning six and drawing one.
The Reds needed a last gasp equaliser to snatch a point against Chelsea on Saturday to maintain their unbeaten start to the season but Guardiola is not fazed.
“I believe too much in that team, in those guys,” he said. “I know how they fight. Go to Anfield, win, lose, whatever. It’s a long time ago Man City was able to win at Anfield. What I want to see is the team alive, and we are alive.
“If they beat us three times, they are a good side. They lost the first game in the Carabao Cup [against Chelsea last week] but at Anfield they score a lot of goals, they don’t concede.
“Now it’s Hoffenheim [on Tuesday in the Champions League], and after that we are going to prepare [for Liverpool], and after that we’re going to prepare for Burnley. At the end, we’re going to see what happened at the end of the season.”
Manchester City have not won at Anfield since 2003 a run of 17 matches in all competitions.
