Another super exiting premier League match is coming up as Liverpool will host Manchester City tomorrow at Anfield.

The two teams’ rivalry has been started since the late 2010s and has had lots of ups and downs since.

Now beforehand of the match, the two teams’ coaches have shared their ideas about the important competition.

It is interesting to know that Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp insists that the Citizens are the "best team in the world". This is while they are currently the first in the Premier League with Man City six points behind them. Anyway, the coach has mentioned that though their rivals are the best, it is not impossible for the Reds to beat them.

 “Are we capable of beating the best team in the world? Yes we are," said the reds coach.

"If you win against the best team in the world, then it makes you the best team in the world,” he added.

“I think on a normal day City are still a step ahead. That is how it is.

“But we still have a lot of scope for improvement. It is not too important what you are in this moment; what's important is what you can be in the ­future,” the coach went on to say.

On the other side of the pitch Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, is more confident but he has admitted that losing at Liverpool on Sunday would be a title blow.

The team are currently the second in the Premier League with a six points difference behind their rivals. This is how if Liverpool wins the match on Sunday, they would still be the leader of the League but this time with a nine-point difference, achieved in 12 games played, which is huge.

In this case, Guardiola was asked whether it is all over if they lose or not and in response he said: “I don't know, what happens if we win?” according to tribalfootball.

“I think in November it is never over. That is my point - I know what is going to happen if we lose, people will say it's over but there are a lot of games to play and my experience in sport is that you have to fight until the end.

“Whether we are going to win the Champions League or not, your favourite question to me, I don't have the answer. I'm sorry.

“I don't know if it will be over. It will be more difficult as one season they've lost one game and this season they are unbeaten.

“So you have to imagine they are not going to lose too many games but the season is long a lot of games and situations that can happen."
