Pep Guardiola's Manchester City are coming off a bad 1-2 loss to Manchester United in the English Premier league as they are third in the EPL standings. Klopp's Liverpool have a 14 point cushion on Man City as the Reds have been nearly perfect so far this season. Second placed Leicester have an impressive 6 point lead on Guardiola's team as the Spanish boss does not seem very pleased by his team's play of late. Guardiola recently spoke to the English press in his post-derby conference, here is what he had to say:
'United played a good defensive game, we have to give them credit. You have to play at a high level when you play against teams like Liverpool, Juve, Barcelona, Real Madrid, maybe we aren't up to it...'.
