Manchester City wont fear Liverpool despite recent history Pep Guardiola

That suggests they might limit City to a respectable scoreline, although the fact that Guardiola's team scored three at home to Brighton last season indicates they have the capability to open a wider gap this time.

"They did very well, they are a great team, they have been together for several years, they know each other very well and what they have to do".

Next weekend they face Liverpool at Anfield, with Jurgen Klopp's side having beaten them three times last season. Go to Anfield, win, lose, whatever.

Still, City won well enough to be able to look forward to Sunday's big game at Anfield with optimism. "No-one expects us to get anything from it, so that's normal and that pressure is taken off, but we want to do as well as we can". Hopefully it's going to happen sooner or later'.

"Now it's Hoffenheim [on Tuesday in the Champions League], and after that we are going to prepare [for Liverpool], and after that we're going to prepare for Burnley".

Guardiola was asked about Mendy's current situation during a pre-match press conference on Saturday, and initially tried to downplay the problem.

Brighton manager Chris Hughton on playing Manchester City: "Along with playing Liverpool away, I would say that this is the toughest game".

"Brighton defended so well and I give a lot of credit to the way we attacked today". The 22-year-old didn't start any of City's first four Premier League games and was left out of the squad all together for the clash with Newcastle on September 1. The unfortunate victim of some horrendous injury luck, Pep Guardiola has grown tired of how the Frenchman is spending all his available down time.

Ultimately James Milner's penalty was cancelled out by Sergio Aguero and the sides shared the points before eventually finishing in the Champions League qualifying spots - but we had been given a glimpse of the excitement these two teams and managers would throw up in 2017/18.
