United Kingdom, Manchester
November 09, 2019 at 10:21 GMT +00:00 · Published

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola said Liverpool is "probably right now the strongest team in the world," ahead of their Premier League clash on Sunday. The remarks were made at a press conference at Etihad Stadium in Manchester on Friday.

Not only will Manchester City face Liverpool, but will do so in Liverpool's Anfield which is the "toughest stadium in Europe to go to," according to Guardiola.

Guardiola also defended Manchester City's goalkeeper Claudio Bravo who had to replace first-choice stopper Ederson following the latter's thigh injury.

"I've seen him [Claudio Bravo] in training sessions and I know how fired up he is and how good he is. We are not going to lose because of Claudio," said Guardiola.

Liverpool and Manchester City will meet at Anfield at 16:30 GMT (17:30 CET) on Sunday, where a win for Liverpool would move them nine points clear of City at the top of the Premier League.
