"It is something for Liverpool, not me", said Guardiola when asked about a possible repeat on Sunday.

Manchester City defender Benjamin Mendy lavishes praise on his current manager Pep Guardiola.

"We don't want to have that feeling again so we will fight with all we have for a different result", he added. At home, we made a very good game as well.
