- ‘When you have excuses you cannot move forward’
- Liverpool and Manchester City meet at Anfield on Sunday
Pep Guardiola has suggested Jürgen Klopp was making “excuses” for Liverpool’s faltering title defence by wrongly suggesting Manchester City had two weeks off as a result of the postponement of their match at Everton on 28 December.
City’s trip to Goodison Park was called off after the Manchester club reported some players had had contact with someone who had tested positive for Covid. On Friday Klopp claimed this allowed Guardiola’s side a fortnight’s break before playing Chelsea on 3 January. However, City had played on 26 December and had only 28 December itself and the next day, planned for recovery, off as a result of the postponement.
