"It's the best time in the year if you have a week like that and can train", said Klopp.
It was the champions' fourth league defeat of the season and Guardiola's men have now conceded as many goals in this campaign as they did in the entirety of the last. He's important, he is our captain and on the field, he gives us extra that few central defenders around the world can give us.
"We know all the great teams like to have possession to play high up the pitch".
"We didn't have games in that time; having one game in the time would have been good, even if it would have been hard line-up-wise because we really needed a couple of days for the boys to be part of training".
"So we worked with different moves and examples of global teams to look at the defenders and the different aspects of a modern defender". But step by step he corrected things and improved his movement, cover and defending with cover and without risk.
"At Liverpool, he has took another dimension". But Virgil has had always a big character and strong personality. "We were not at our best, sometimes that happens, I can understand the players". If the away side were to lose the game, it would be the first time Leicester have lost 3 consecutive Premier League games under Puel's stewardship.
"I said it a few times, I expect City to win every game". He'll be slightly disappointed, however, that this midweek's fixture is against Leicester - another side who weren't in FA Cup action at the weekend, making Liverpool's rest period less significant, at least in terms of this week.
"I hope Harry can follow the same way".
Guardiola warned his players that they can not afford to slip up because he doesn't expect leaders Liverpool to drop many points between now and the end of the season. "Very, very good player and that's the main reason why he is such a threat".
