A little about the topic
Bought with great fanfare to bolster the backline at Manchester by Guardiola, the former Real Madrid man struggled with injury during his two-year stint at the club. Despite playing 23 appearances for the club in his first campaign, he played less than a dozen top-level matches the following season and was stuck on the sidelines. He kicked off their 2018 Carabao Cup final triumph, but had to do with a cameo off the bench the following year, while missing out on a full minute in the 2019 FA Cup final.
Pep will be looking to keep his side’s title defense on track in the Premier League in yet another major test of his side’s powers against Liverpool this weekend. After overcoming Chelsea’s last top-summer timeout – another vital contender for their crown – they too will emerge to rebound from the disappointment of PSG’s midweek loss. The Man City boss saw his old protagonist Messi drown his hopes with his first goal for a Ligue 1 outfit since he arrived in the summer, in a 2-0 reverse.
