Why Man City want to be more like Liverpool - Pep Guardiola

"I was surprised the front three were playing". "We played Chelsea twice last week. They are much more proven winners than we are". It's not that you miss it overnight.

Lorenzo Insigne scored the only goal of the game which came right on the stroke of the 90th minute but Napoli dominated the match right from kick off.

"It was an interesting looking group before we started and it's still interesting now".

"I wouldn't sit here now and say, 'Yes, this is the game between the two big ones, United is not there any more, '" he said.

"My faith in the team is so big".

Liverpool might come up against the Belgian playmaker on Sunday if he passes late fitness tests and will nearly definitely have a place on the bench even if he is unable to start the game at Anfield.

"I think they are the best team but that doesn't mean Liverpool can't find a way of overcoming them in a one-off game and taking the title if City went on a huge run in the Champions League, Carabao Cup and FA Cup". We want to show a reaction. "We felt it now, we don't want to have that feeling again", he said.

Maybe it's because Jurgen Klopp is the only manager to be able to get inside Pep Guardiola's head and force him to change the way he likes to play?

Pep's men, meanwhile, need only recall their own ride into Anfield last April to get full motivation for only a second City win there in 32 visits since 1981.

"We beat City three times last season and not once after any of those games did we go into the dressing room and think "now we know how to beat them". "I didn't watch that documentary, I heard about it and, now I saw it, is there anything where you think, 'Wow?'" said Klopp. Then it can work.

"I thought Liverpool were very good against Chelsea", Neville added.

Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita could be fit to play despite spending Wednesday night in hospital after suffering a back spasm against Napoli.

"What I know, because I know how I would be in that situation, is that they lost the quarter-finals against us a year ago and the league game here after a long run without a defeat and they want to respond".
