What the coaches said:
Jurgen Klopp on Man City: “Pep and I, we are not best friends because we don’t know each other but I respect him a lot and I know he respects what we are doing as well so that’s fine.

“For a rivalry you don’t need to be disrespectful and around the games I would say we have a good relationship without meeting or talking or whatever, but respectful. And during the games we are both competitors and so far we did really well in cutting that out, the other stuff.

“Honestly, the situation is like it is, no problem with that. I always could see brilliance, or could admit brilliance when I saw it, so that’s in this case the case.”

Pep Guardiola on Liverpool: “If you asked that question with 10 games left I would say I don’t think Liverpool can catch the top of the league,” he said.

“But being in the position we are now, and with the World Cup, anything can happen.

“I know the quality they have. It has always been a tough game and I don’t expect anything else.”
