"It is not the first time he goes back".

Manchester United are also speculated to hold an interest but Guardiola was keen to remain focused on events on the field, with City facing a trip to a ground where they last won in May 2003.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola gave encouraging news on Gabriel Jesus' rehabilitation from a knee ligament injury as he refused to discuss his club's reported pursuit of Arsenal striker Alexis Sanchez.

"I know what it is like at Anfield for a game like this where probably not numerous home fans are expecting to win".

Mark Lawrenson is tipping Liverpool FC to play out a 1-1 draw with Manchester City in their Premier League showdown at Anfield on Sunday. "But records are always there to be broken".

"But if you are not fearless in your game, you will also have a problem".

"This season at Stamford Bridge we were able to do that but still we have to go to Anfield, to Emirates and against Tottenham".

"Normally when this kind of situation [booing] happens it is because he was important for Liverpool fans", the City boss added. And they have shored up their suspect defence by paying an eye-watering £75 million ($102 million, 84 million euros) to Southampton for defender Virgil Van Dijk.

"I'm pretty sure, and he did it last season, he's going to try to make his own game and I think it will be a good game".

Manchester City's last three away games have seen them win just once by a single goal to nil, with their game at Swansea being the only game to be settled by more than a single goal which was predicted by the football tipsters at Tipsters Review. "With Van Dijk they are even better".

Manchester City star Fernandinho is the top flight midfielder who has completed most passes this season, with 1,898 under his belt so far.

I've gone back and forth on this game, taking a different look and approach to it two or three tiimes. "If I was my players I wouldn't want my manager talking about other things".
