"Both Leicester City and West Ham raised their game and thoroughly deserved their point in recent games, but the Reds didn't lose those matches and they have still only lost one league game so far this term". Technically there is nothing better in Europe, so it will be really hard to be in control of the match, but I think that is the area that will decide the game, more than the strikers.
With Liverpool holding a game in hand, Guardiola is well aware any slip-up at home could hand the initiative back to Jurgen Klopp's men and he urged his players to treat the game like a "final for us". The Premier League is very competitive.
"Chelsea is an exceptional team with seven days to prepare that game". The Seagulls are three points better off but are without a win in five top-flight games and a Clarets victory in front of the television cameras would push Chris Hughton's men towards the mire. And we will fight until the last match day'. "Higuaín is a striker of exceptional quality, the type of guy who doesn't need too much to score a goal", Guardiola said.
In the English Premier League, Liverpool will play against Bournemouth this weekend.
Liverpool's James Milner praised Georginio Wijnaldum after it was revealed the player overcame illness to star in a 3-0 win against Bournemouth. Aguero will be keen to get among the goal scorers once again as he side pushes towards consecutive Premier League titles.
Michael Owen is tipping Liverpool FC to return to winning ways with a victory over Bournemouth at Anfield on Saturday afternoon.
They should have extended their lead when Roberto Firmino launched a counter-attack down the left, but Wijnaldum's square ball seemed to take Salah by surprise and he fluffed his shot.
'I thought it was a good team performance.
Liverpool's win arrived after a week in which the club announced a world record profit of £106m.
Chelsea centre back Antonio Rudiger has overcome a knock that kept him out of action last week and is expected to return.
"They let in four at Bournemouth recently and if they fall behind, I just do not see them coming back, they do not have that in them". Leicester will be facing a top six side for the third game in a row, losing one and drawing one.
City are now at the top of the table but since Liverpool play before them, the Reds might once again go on top. Therefore, his goals-per-game ratio was slightly better during his time at Anfield, although it's worth noting that he has played in a wing-back position at times this season.
"There are moments when the other team-mates are in better conditions than them". He won't feature tomorrow, though, as he is ineligible to play against his parent club. They played the final of the Champions League last season.
