EPL: Guardiola rates Man City’s Aguero ahead of Salah

Compartir

Anfield was where City's unbeaten league run and Champions League hopes unravelled last season as Pep Guardiola's side failed to come to terms with Jürgen Klopp's high press.

"He (Salah) is younger and it was his first year back in England since his time at Chelsea, so we will see in the future", said Guardiola, talking ahead of City's visit to Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday.

Defensive stability is something Liverpool have managed this season when you compare this team to last season's outfit.

"I said it a few times and I can say it again, I really think the most important thing for football - the most important job of football - is entertaining the people", Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said on Friday.

He has never produced his best form at his old club - losing all four games with City - and was a substitute for their most recent clash in April, when City were beaten 3-0 in the Champions League quarterfinal.

Liverpool ace Salah was the breakout star in last season's Premier League, winning the Golden Boot with 32 goals from his 36 appearances. However, after so long on the sidelines I doubt Guardiola will start the Belgian worldwide so we could see Bernado Silva playing alongside David Silva in midfield.

"We defended in a lot of moments really good". At home, we made a very good game as well. "If this was match-day 30 we'd have to see who can deal with it". We want to fight them.

The vice president also brought up the increased aggression by China's navy in the South China Sea. China insists it wants all of those things as well and bristles at accusations to the contrary.

The front three of Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino are likely to cause City a whole host of problems. He has a lot of weapons to attack you and they are masters in taking advantage of your mistakes.

"Against Napoli the first 15 minutes was an open game with better opportunities for us".

Does Klopp have the upper hand over Guardiola? The Reds also appear to be City's closest title rivals this season.

"It would be an understatement tosay that City won the titlelast season".

"I didn't see any signs of a fitness issue". Pep's teams are best in that and I can admit that easily because it's so obvious.

Klopp was waiting to learn whether midfielder Naby Keita would be available after suffering a back spasm in Naples while forward Adam Lallana is back in full training following a groin problem.
