Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola expressed his respect for Liverpool who are in strong contention for this season’s EPL title.  City currently sits at the top of the table with 2 points ahead of second placed Liverpool.

Both teams are the only sides yet to be beaten this season.

“I remember perfectly that season, how tough it was. Madrid with Manuel (Pellegrini) played incredibly good,” Metro UK quoted him as saying.

“It was so nice because we did those 99 points when the year before we won the treble with Barcelona.

“To maintain that level, we did 99 points with someone else pushing us. We knew that if we dropped points Madrid were going to win the title.

“It’s similar with (Rafael) Nadal, (Roger) Federer and (Novak) Djokovic, no? They push one to be better than the other one because they know.

“We need it in sport, as athletes. They [the City players] know. I didn’t tell them, but they know how strong Liverpool are.

“They know that we can’t drop points because if we do Liverpool are going to win the league.

“I can say Liverpool or Chelsea and Tottenham are the same in this moment. Arsenal as well.”
