Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has admitted that he is trying hard not to think about the Reds right now despite the eight-point gap between the sides in the Premier League table.
After Wolves went to the Etihad Stadium and emerged with the three points, Guardiola was clearly a little concerned – even admitting that his side got nervous this early in the campaign.
Via the Liverpool ECHO, he said: “We started quite well and then we conceded two situations with two loose balls in our build-up – we got a little bit nervous.
“They [Liverpool] don’t drop points for many reasons. But it is better not to think about that. It is better to think about what is next. The distance is big.”
The Reds will not drop many points, that is certainly true, but City will not either. No Reds fan thinks that the title race is done yet, though, of course, should City catch up at some point, rival fans will claim everyone was getting ahead of themselves.
Next up for the Reds is the trip to Old Trafford after the international break. Manchester City and Guardiola come to Anfield on November 10 in what is increasingly looking like being a colossal clash at the top.
