Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has said he is surprised at Jurgen Klopp’s claim that they had a two-week break.

Klopp made the remark while discussing his team’s poor form.

Consecutive home defeats for the Premier League champions has seen them fall seven points behind the leaders City.

Klopp stated that they had “not had a break” while adding that “City had two weeks off for Covid reasons”.

Guardiola appeared agitated that the German brought up the topic ahead of their trip to Anfield and suggested that mind-games were at play.

“When I see Jurgen I will tell him how many weeks we were off,’ Guardiola said.

“I’m surprised. I didn’t think Jurgen was that type of manager.

“Jurgen has to see the calendar again.

“He knows it’s not true, come on.

“Sometimes people do it for the purpose… I did not think he was that type of guy.

“Maybe I’m wrong. Maybe it was a misunderstanding.”

The Premier League moved City’s trip to Everton on December 28, just four hours before kick-off.

Guardiola’s men returned to training two days later with a heavily depleted squad.

City however won at Chelsea on January 3 without seven first-team regulars, some missing with injuries.

They have won the following nine matches in all competitions.
