Coach: Jurgen KloppIf the Reds have not given soup for bad luck, the same cannot be said of Manchester City. In spite of the rout applied in the last round by 8-0 against Watford, the Citizens have already added a draw against Tottenham and a defeat against Norwich. In a press conference this Friday, Guardiola tried to clarify the racism controversies between Bernardo Silva and Benjamin Mendy earlier in the week.
- If people think Bernardo is that type of player, they are completely wrong. They judge a joke, I judge three years with him and the daily friendship that he has with Mendy. If he, or any other player on my squad does that, I know it's a joke. Mendy is like a brother to Bernardo, ”said Pep.
