Liverpool's three victories over English Premier League champions Manchester City last season do not mean they have their rivals' number, manager Jurgen Klopp said, ahead of Sunday's clash between the pair at Anfield.
"Every game is completely different".
"We arrive there, both sides, to play a Premier League game".
"He will be in today; if he can do something on the training ground, I don't know". It doesn't matter that we lost.
"They have found some weakness and taken advantage of it". They are a top side and reached the Champions League final.
Liverpool had some good news of their own with midfielder Naby Keita receiving a positive update on his fitness. He is an excellent coach.
"We needed it in all the games we played against them and we will need it again, but that's no problem".
Guardiola also recognised the dangers that Liverpool's front three - Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah - pose.
"But Liverpool are so powerful, they run like insane".
"You have to be ready, you need a fantastic football team - which I have, thank God - with an outstanding character, ready for being courageous, ready for making mistakes against an outstanding opponent".

"These players are unsafe close to the box and link up very well". Arsenal, Tottenham are coming back.
"Before [when Klopp was at Dortmund] it was [Marco] Reus and [Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang".
"The goal is to attack better to have the ball and protect ourselves when we lose it".
"It is boring and secondly our team is not built that way, I will try to convince our players to be ourselves, even at Anfield". You have to minimise risk.
"We need to be at 100 per cent, if not 110 to deal with the quality of City".
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola: "Liverpool will beat a lot of teams, not just Man City".
"Liverpool should be annoyed, not us".
" He will be in today; if he can do something on the training ground, I don't know".
"I think the best way to protect the bus is down to the Liverpool fans who are there", said a tetchy Guardiola.
'When one team is better and beat us, accept it. Why should our fans have to protect our bus?
