Manchester City focused on Champions League qualification after midweek exit

The German coach said ahead of a crunch clash with Manchester City on Sunday: "That's the life of an outstandingly good football player like Phil".

City go into the weekend third in the Premier League table, one point above fourth-place Liverpool with a game in hand.

"I would say you need to be ready for both", said Klopp when asked if it was important for his team to learn how to win "ugly" games.

Klopp was reluctant to put a timeframe on how long it will take to win the Premier League, but he does not think a first title since 1990 should be an immediate expectation.

City have also failed to keep a clean sheet in each of their last 12 games in all competitions against Liverpool, shipping 23 in the process.

Liverpool started slowly against Burnley last week as Ashley Barnes gave the visitors the lead after just seven minutes, but the Reds responded with a goal on the stroke of halftime from Georginio Wijnaldum before Emre Can's 61st-minute strike gave the Reds a 2-1 result. "If there's something to say, we'll be the first to let you know".

However, Savage has tipped a different outcome this time, predicting a win in the direction of the Manchester club, as cited by William Hill's official Twitter account.

In addition, City have already lost five times this season and Guardiola has never suffered six league defeats in the same campaign.

Klopp called the Premier League the "most hard league in the world" because of the fact "a lot of teams have a lot of money" and also "have a lot of good players" which makes it "really hard to be a champion in England".

Klopp feels the competitiveness of this season's Premier League means securing Champions League football would be an "outstanding" accomplishment.

The flawless accompaniment to Henderson's energy in midfield, Silva's craft and guile sees him pip the likes of Yaya Toure and Emre Can to complete the central pairing in Hamann's XI.

"We're going to try to improve the team, but do it in a way that's possible in the market", added Guardiola.
