Jurgen Klopp is looking forward to visiting the Etihad and Manchester City with his Liverpool squad on Sunday.
Liverpool are fourth on the table, one point and one spot behind Guardiola’s Manchester City ahead of the crunch clash on Sunday.
Even though Manchester City are out of the champions league, they’ve not lost in the league since January 15 and it is a task Klopp is relishing.
“I don’t think we are the favourites,” Klopp said. “That’s not too bad. We know that we can be difficult to play in games like this, that’s true.
“We’ve felt good in these games so far but for me City is the most difficult team to play. It’s real football, difficult to defend.
“We have to be at our best to get anything. If you get a little bit passive they play around you. I am really looking forward to this, it’s a real tactical challenge.
“It’s an important moment in the season, but I don’t think we should involve this type of pressure. We know that it’s possible to win.
“A lot of teams have failed [against them]. We know what we have to do, if we can do it, I don’t know. But we will try everything. It could be a fantastic game to watch.”
