Pep Guardiola has warned his Manchester City players that Liverpool FC will be waiting to “win the league” if they slip up this season.

Liverpool FC have made a fine start to the new campaign and they currently find themselves in second place in the Premier League table and unbeaten in the top flight along with Guardiola’s men.

The Reds are currently two points behind Manchester City after 13 games and it looks as though Jurgen Klopp’s men will be one of the Citizens’ closest challengers for the title this season.

Manchester City are the clear favourites to retain their crown this season and they have been in superb form of late, sweeping aside West Ham United 4-0 at the weekend.

Liverpool FC, however, were also impressive as they sealed a 3-0 win over Watford on Saturday afternoon.

Despite Manchester City being the leaders in the title chase, Guardiola took a moment to remind his players about the threat posed by Liverpool FC after Saturday’s wein.

Guardiola said, as quoted by the Evening Standard: “I didn’t tell them [my players] but they knew how strong Liverpool are, and they knew that we can’t drop points because if we do, Liverpool is going to win the League.

“You can say Liverpool, Chelsea the same or Tottenham in that moment, Arsenal as well.

“To compete you need good opponents close and this season we have it here and in Europe.”

Liverpool FC will return to Champions League action on Wednesday night when they take on Paris Saint-Germain at Parc des Princes.
