Guardiola - Liverpool the Strongest Team in the World

Manchester City head coach Pep Guardiola described Premier League title rivals Liverpool as 'probably the best team in the world right now' ahead of their crunch Premier League clash on Sunday.

Jurgen Klopp's side have not yet lost domestically this term and find themselves six points clear at the top of the table.

However, last season City took four points from the Reds, a return that proved decisive as they pipped Liverpool – who lost just once in the league – to the title by a solitary point.

Guardiola described the triumph as one of the greatest of his career and recognised the difficulty of playing at Anfield - a stadium where Liverpool have not lost any of their previous 45 league games.

"As a manager, I said last season when we won the league, they're the best contender I ever faced in my career to win this league," he said.

"It was the biggest achievement, or one of the biggest achievements, as a club. It remains the same. Probably right now they're the strongest team in the world.

"They are an exceptional team. Of course, the history is there for itself. It's something special, I think more for the quality of the team of what they do, quality of players they have, quality of manager they have, I believe more in that, in the team, than the scenario [atmosphere at Liverpool].

"Right now it's [Anfield] one of the toughest ones, right now in Europe it’s the toughest stadiums to go there." Follow us on Twitter and on Facebook
