Despite only returning to training on Monday after a six-week layoff with knee ligament damage, Kevin De Bruyne could make his return to action a full two weeks earlier than expected.

"They are so strong".

In Brazilians Alisson and Ederson, these clubs have two of the best keepers in the Premier League, and I expect them to have busy afternoons.

When shown a video from the City documentary when Guardiola fretted about facing Liverpool's front three ahead of last season's Champions League meeting, Klopp shrugged it off.

"The reason why last time he didn't [start] - the only time he didn't [start] - was for another reason, a tactical movement, so Kyle Walker can attack more on the right side than him", Guardiola said at a news conference.

Mark Lawrenson is backing Liverpool FC and Manchester City to play out a draw in their top of the table clash at Anfield on Sunday evening.

The media also asked whether Guardiola would leave Raheem Sterling out of the squad against his old side due to response from the Liverpool fans. "I didn't watch that documentary, I heard about it and, now I saw it, is there anything where you think, 'Wow?'" said Klopp.

"It is not that when I faced teams of Pep Guardiola I had a team of names that nobody knew and I had only met them the day before. But that means nothing for Sunday, we need to be at 100 per cent, if not 110 per cent, to deal with the quality of City".

City's wins over Newcastle, Fulham, Cardiff and Brighton put Guardiola in contention for his sixth monthly award, but he faces competition from Jurgen Klopp (Liverpool), Nuno Espirito Santo (Wolves) and Unai Emery (Arsenal).

'For the moment, we have the most points of any English team in the Champions League, and it is a big responsibility for us to maintain that in our next group match against the super team, Juventus.

"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. There was a bump in the road on Wednesday, but we've got to keep trying to push forward and gather as many points as we can. Most prominently, Carragher is seen busy covering Premier League matches and talking about analytical stuff.

"Obviously we won the last three games against City. It will be hard work, no problem with that, everybody knows it". "They are top side and we try to be closer every time".
