Sadio Mane shrugs off Pep Guardiola diving comments

Sadio Mane

Sadio Mane's late goal against Aston Villa was the fifth time Liverpool have scored a 90th-minute winner in the Premier League under Jurgen Klopp

City arguably need to win the game, and reduce the deficit to three points, to keep their title hopes alive.

"He has been happy to take a point or nick it, which is not the Manchester City way".

Paul Merson says Liverpool FC will beat Manchester City at Anfield on Sunday if the defending champions allow the top of the table clash to be open.

"Jürgen said he knows Sadio better than me".

Aside from needing to knock Liverpool off their unrelenting stride, City are also faced with overturning a dismal record on the red side of Stanley Park.

What Liverpool has done last season and this season many, many times is because they've this incredible quality and this incredible talent to fight until the end. "I've never understood "must-win" games because that doesn't change the chances", he added.

"We constantly get asked questions and sometimes we say what is, in that second, in our mind without thinking about anything else, that we are in public, that there is a camera", said the German.

Pep Guardiola accuses 'special talent' Sadio Mane of diving
But if you use the wing constantly, then usually the centre opens up a little bit. Mane grabbed Liverpool's victor in the fourth minute of added time against Villa.

"That was the intention for my comment".

But Mane, who finished as the joint-top goalscorer in the Premier League last season, said he wouldn't let Guardiola's comments affect his play, and that if going to ground earned his team a penalty, he wouldn't hesitate to do so.

But he believes Guardiola's worries are more to do with Liverpool's strengths than anything to do with diving. To say it's lucky again? No.

The game will be the first time he has visited Anfield since the attack. "Hopefully I can clarify everything for Jurgen".

"That's why it's nice to face them and try to compete with them". As it stands, Liverpool are [1.91] to win the Premier League while City are [2.32], although that perhaps owes as much to Liverpool's blistering start to the sense that City's priority this season is the Champions League.

Guardiola said: "I don't know. If it happens once or twice in a life then, yes, but this many - maybe 10 or 12 or 13 times?" "If I have the opportunity, whenever around the game, I would really like to see him".
