Match Preview John Stones Manchester City 2018-19In the unusual position of playing catch up, Pep Guardiola said earlier this week that he wants his Manchester City players to ignore what Liverpool are doing and simply concentrate on their own job.A seven-point gap has now opened between the teams, however, and if the Citizens fail to respond to the form of their opponents, it would deal a major blow to their hopes of defending their Premier League crown.“I’ve told them, don’t look and be scared, don’t watch the calendar for the Liverpool games, forget about them,” he said. “Normally when that happens you lose your games, in my experience. If you think they are going to lose in that game or that game, you are distracted and you lose your games. And after, it’s over.”City have just fallen a touch short of the almost flawless form that they showed throughout the whole of last season. Indeed, they would have to win all of their remaining 16 matches if they were to hit the heights of their record-breaking form of 2017-18, when they struck 100 points.Midfielder Bernardo Silva, however, remains upbeat about the situation , especially as Guardiola is nearing a fully fit squad.“It is good finally to be back together and until this moment of the season we have had so many injured players,” he said.“We have never played with the whole squad so to have almost everyone available is fantastic for us and it is very good to try and go for all the competitions.”Mark Hudson, who is in temporary charge of Huddersfield, meanwhile, wants to see unity from his men as they battle apparently insurmountable odds.“My side will be full of intent, aggressive and work hard for each other. A real togetherness is something I really believe in, you can’t get any result without being together,” he said. “Everyone has to work as hard as they can for each other as part of the team.“Man City are a world-class team with a world-class manager, but we’ve just got to look forward to it.“We have to show intent, it’s all about us, what we can do this week on the training field and go into the game with real intent to try and pose them as many problems as we can.” Check out Goal’s Premier League 2019-20 fantasy football podcast for game tips, debate and rivalries.last_img read more
