It's a different look to the Blues from those who secured the title at The Hawthorns last season. "Obviously we all feel a little bit exhausted, a year ago we went from week to week, but now we have already played a lot of games".

Guardiola , who will be without defender Fabian Delph for several weeks after his first half injury, believes City will use their Anfield frustration to bounce back in their next game against Newcastle. This is Klopp's Liverpool now though, full of 100-percent committed players, and it's a team that is certainly going places.
