Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has admitted Premier League title rivals Liverpool make for fierce competition.
He’s quoted as saying by BBC Sport that the Reds are “one of the best teams” he’s seen in his life.
The Citizens now sit one point ahead of Jurgen Klopp’s men in the table following a 1-0 victory at home against Tottenham Hotspur over the weekend.
Liverpool face off against 2012 League Cup finalists Cardiff City this Sunday and can move back ahead of the reigning champions, but Pep has confidence in his team.
“The title is still in our hands,” said Guardiola. “Every day with this club and these players – it doesn’t matter what happens next – we’ll fight until the end,” he told Match of the Day.
“We’ll see how far we get. We are fighting with the best Liverpool ever, one of the best teams I’ve seen in my life.”

The Citizens play fierce rivals Manchester United in their next game and Liverpool fans will surely be hoping for a master class from Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s men – as odd as that may seem.
After our fixture against relegation-threatened Cardiff, the Reds are up against Rafa Benitez’s Newcastle United in what could be a pivotal game in the title race.
