Manchester City boss Guardiola says team are "alive" ahead of Liverpool clash

Pep Guardiola has confirmed that Manchester City goal machine Sergio Aguero is a doubt to face Liverpool next weekend as he struggles with a foot injury.

He said: "Yes, he was late".

It was a result that meant the reigning champions had dropped just two points - in a draw at Wolves - during their first seven league games.

City were not expecting him to be available until late November, but his return could well come before this month's worldwide break.

After arriving in Manchester in 2017 in what was an expensive transfer, Mendy suffered a serious cruciate ligament injury which sidelined him for the majority of the season.

Sergio is struggling a bit with some problems in his foot. "I watched their game at Liverpool and they were very unlucky not to take a point", he said.


"The players should be here and he knows it. He played good in the last game [against Brighton] so he deserved to play again". "Now we have two games before the worldwide break, hopefully, he can do those and, after, make a final recovery".

Liverpool beat City twice in the Champions League and in the league in January: 'I believe too much in that team, in those guys.

That suggests they might limit City to a respectable scoreline, although the fact that Guardiola's team scored three at home to Brighton last season indicates they have the capability to open a wider gap this time. It's a long time ago Man City was able to win at Anfield.

And their fans were relaxed enough for a cheeky chant of "Jose Mourinho.we want you stay" in a dig at rivals Manchester United.

"We can not forget Aleks [Zinchenko] helped us a lot last season and played really good". They lost the first game in the Carabao Cup [against Chelsea last week] but at Anfield they score a lot of goals, they don't concede.

'Now it's Hoffenheim, and after that we are going to prepare, and after that we're going to prepare for Burnley. Hopefully it's going to happen sooner or later'.
