Pep Guardiola shows biggest respect to Liverpool with explanation of game plan

Benjamin Mendy Joe Gomez

The three completed matches of the 8th round of the championship of England football.

And, while Guardiola has no doubt that Salah remains a lethal threat, the City manager believes the Egypt star must score prolifically over a period of multiple years to match Aguero's achievements. Liverpool and Manchester City hadn't drawn 0-0 since 1986, they said. It led to Anfield being shrouded in a cloak of caution. In the last 15 minutes they had two big chances and scored a goal. "Maybe we need two penalties to score one goal".

"Today was a game full of respect, both teams respected each other a lot". Don't lose the ball in the wrong moment, otherwise you have a big problem. "Both teams did well". Next time it will go in. Sterling, a former Liverpool player, was given a torrid reception from his former club's supporters who were unimpressed at the manner of his leaving Merseyside.

Pep Guardiola, aware of how twice on this ground last season Liverpool blew them away in a 25-minute spell, appeared to have set up his side to absorb much of the early and take the sting out of Liverpool with a view to capitalising later on.

Eden Hazard was the inspiration as Chelsea, also undefeated this season, cruised to a 3-0 victory at Southampton.

City, always committed to all-out attack, were literally over-run in those spells and could not recover. With Sergio Aguero having already been substituted, Gabriel Jesus had wanted to take the spot kick but Mahrez waved him off.

"We had the ball a lot today but we had to be flawless in defending". Up and down they are the best team in the world in these transitions. "That is what Jurgen feels and the players build, and in that situation they are much better".

"But if it's an open game at Anfield, an open game against Liverpool, you don't even have one chance, not even one percent". But he is becoming less of a threat away from home, and Guardiola needs more from him.

On Sunday, Guardiola had Kyle Walker at right-back and Benjamin Mendy on the other flank as City looked solid and well-drilled, with pace in every position.

In many ways it was an uncharacteristic City performance but a controlled one which satisfied Guardiola. They are so good.

Guardiola's men were also shackled.

"Salah is younger, it was his first year back in England since his time at Chelsea, so we will see in the future, but a guy who has the quality to score almost 50 goals in a season always has that quality", the City boss stressed, via The Mirror.

The Reds and Sky Blues are now in a stalemate, as both sides bid to go top of the Premier League table.

Reflecting on the match as a whole, Van Dijk continued: "Their defence did well". More fundamentally, the Egyptian has lost his touch in front of goal.

Firmino, Mane and Salah were comfortably subdued by City yesterday.
