Guardiola insists Man City are not ‘underdogs’ at Anfield

Pep Guardiola has insisted he doesn’t feel that Man City are ever ‘underdogs’ ahead of Sunday’s high profile game against Liverpool on Sunday.

The reigning Premier League champions head to Merseyside with a six-point deficit to current league leaders Liverpool, and with Man City‘s defence down to the bare bones, a few have suggested that Pep Guardiola’s side are underdogs.

However, ahead of the massive six-pointer, the Catalan has insisted he has ‘never’ felt his side to be an underdog, even though City’s last win at Anfield came all the way back in 2003.

“The people outside the club, the people in the media they try to call us underdogs or not underdogs,” Guardiola told his pre-match press conference.

“I have never felt like this. Never.

“Of course, they are six points ahead and have played fantastic all season, but I’m not going to take a bus to Anfield thinking I am going to lose the game.

“I never have thought that in my career. Always I think of something special to do and we will have our chance to win.

“We know to win this game we must be at our top level. We need an incredible attention to detail. You must believe you can win the game, but we will see what will happens.”
