Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has responded to comments made by Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold ahead of their upcoming match at Anfield. The treble-winning team is set to face off against Jurgen Klopp’s side this weekend in a bid to secure the top spot in the Premier League table.

Manchester City, who have been unbeaten since early December and secured a 3-1 victory over Manchester United last weekend, are aiming to clinch the Premier League trophy ahead of both Liverpool and Arsenal. Guardiola’s side is striving to become the first team to win four consecutive Premier League titles, with just two points currently separating the top three teams in the league.

In their next two league matches, City will face off against Liverpool and Arsenal, with the Gunners coming to the Etihad Stadium after the international break. The Sky Blues are keen to avenge their previous 1-0 defeat at the Emirates Stadium against Arsenal and their 1-1 draw with Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium, where Trent Alexander-Arnold cancelled out Erling Haaland’s goal.

Despite Alexander-Arnold’s absence from the upcoming clash at Anfield, tensions have been raised between the two clubs after the defender downplayed Manchester City’s recent achievements in an interview. Both Haaland and Ruben Dias have responded to these claims, highlighting Manchester City’s success under Guardiola, including 16 trophies and a treble-winning season in 2021.

Guardiola, in response to Alexander-Arnold’s comments, expressed his wishes for the defender’s speedy recovery and emphasized that the team’s focus remains on delivering a strong performance on the pitch. City’s track record against Liverpool in recent meetings has been mixed, with only two wins in their last seven encounters and no victory at Anfield since 2021. Despite this, Guardiola remains confident in his team’s ability to compete at the highest level.
