“The opponent we have is the strongest opponent I have faced in my career as a manager – Liverpool,” said Guardiola.
“I said it when we were in front, I said it when they were in front, I said it when we won, I said it when we lose, I’ve said many times because they have absolutely everything, in the positioning game, in the counter-attack, set-pieces, transitions, Anfield, the stadium.
“I know how difficult it was, I know how difficult it is and will be. But that’s the challenge we have.”
Manchester City will prepare to face Watford on Saturday, September 21, while Liverpool will face Chelsea on Sunday, September 22.
