Manchester City star De Bruyne keen to tackle Anfield atmosphere

Manchester City star De Bruyne keen to tackle Anfield atmosphere

Guardiola also faces a selection dilemma with Ederson being an injury doubt following his withdrawal at half-time in the 1-1 draw against Atalanta.

In a press conference, Guardiola confirmed that the 26-year-old is not fit to play, but has full faith on reserve goalkeeper Bravo to step up to the occasion.

Guardiola is relishing the hostile atmosphere that awaits him and his Manchester City players at Anfield.

"Sunday he can not play. Respect that guy, he is an incredible, top, top keeper". "We have another top goalkeeper, Claudio Bravo can do it too", Guardiola told reporters. He has a lot of experience with Chile.

Firmino, meanwhile, stated that the Anfield crowd can influence matters on the pitch by generating an atmosphere in the stands that makes the team feel like they are playing with a 12th man. After signing from Barcelona in 2016, Bravo endured a hard first campaign at the Etihad Stadium, before being replaced by Ederson in 2017.

While Guardiola is confident, it would be understandable if his senior players were less optimistic.

The rivalry has picked up again this season, with Liverpool leading the Premier League by six points after having gone the whole season thus far undefeated.

A win for Liverpool will see them extend their lead over the defending champions to nine points and Guardiola said that if that were the case, it would become tougher to reel in Juergen Klopp's side that lost only one game last season.

"The red card at Atalanta is because we lost the ball in a risky position".

The unbeaten league-leading Reds needed an 87th-minute header from Andy Robertson and an injury-time victor from Sadio Mane to defeat Aston Villa 2-1 last time out and preserve a six-point cushion over City.

"In the end it is just three more important points but Manchester City have been the best team in the league for the last few years so we need to give everything to win this game".
