Pep Guardiola makes shock admission about his tactics against LFC

Posted by

Pep Guardiola – normally a staunch and stubborn believer in attacking, free-flowing football – admitted post-match that he changed his Manchester City tactics to deal with the threat the Reds pose.

The City boss, who admitted in the Amazon Prime documentary ‘All or Nothing’ that Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino petrified him, said, via Anfield Express“If you play an open game at Anfield against Liverpool you don’t have 1% chance (of winning).

“Maybe they are the best team in the world on transitions.”

The Reds had won their three previous matches against City but would have been happy to take a point against them this time around given Virgil van Dijk gave away a penalty late on.
