European hangover won't derail Liverpool's title bid, says Guardiola

SHOWS: MANCHESTER, ENGLAND, UK (MAY 3, 2019) (BBC - NO USE UK) 1.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) MANCHESTER CITY, COACH PEP GUARDIOLA, SAYING: "The game was incredibly good.

The game for the semi-final for the Champions League, both sides were incredible.

Liverpool were outstanding and to beat Liverpool, Barcelona have to do a good performance as well.

So, both teams were incredible - an incredible game.

I enjoyed watching them a lot.

I don't think so, really.

They fought a lot for this season.

I think it's going to do to their game.

Of course, Newcastle is not easy, like Leicester is not easy, so we are going to see what happens but they are going to be well prepared to try to win the game." 2.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) MANCHESTER CITY, COACH PEP GUARDIOLA, SAYING: "Before Leicester were a counter-attacking team and a team that would make runs in behind.

Now with Brendan Rodgers, they have added another way to play.

They can use that, but they can control absolutely every part of the game.

And I think Brendan (Rodgers) shows his incredible qualities as a manager, the fact that in just two or two and a half months his team is already playing the way he wants to play.

Everybody in their positions, his movements are always well coordinated and of course, with incredible quality with Tielemans, Maddison, people in front with Barnes and Gray and Albrighton.

And they are so fast players.

And they have incredible quality.

Honestly, I saw three games and the last games they played and I was really impressed the way they played.

The players know it will be an incredible task for us." 4.

GUARDIOLA LEAVING NEWS CONFERENCE STORY: Pep Guardiola does not expect Liverpool to be affected by their Champions League semi-final defeat by Barcelona as they resume the battle for the Premier League title with his Manchester City side.

Juergen Klopp's men were outplayed in a 3-0 loss at the Nou Camp in the first leg on Wednesday (May 1), and travel to Newcastle United in their penultimate game of the league campaign on Saturday (May 4).

"I think the game was incredibly good.

The game for the semi-final for the Champions League, both sides were incredible.

Liverpool were outstanding," Guardiola told reporters ahead of City's home clash against Leicester City on Monday (May 6).

Leicester will arrive at the Etihad Stadium with Jamie Vardy in fine form, finding the net 11 times in his last 11 league appearances.

Guardiola hailed Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers' impact on Vardy's style of play since the Northern Irishman took charge at the King Power Stadium in February.

"Brendan (Rodgers) shows his incredible qualities as a manager, the fact that in just two or two and a half months his team is already playing the way he wants to play.

Everybody in their positions, his movements are always well coordinated and of course, with incredible quality," he said.

City know that a win over Leicester, followed by victory at Brighton & Hove Albion on the final day of the campaign will ensure City a second consecutive league title.

Guardiola confirmed playmaker Kevin De Bruyne is out of contention for Monday's clash.

The Belgium midfielder has not featured since suffering a hamstring injury in the 1-0 league win over Tottenham Hotspur last month.

The Spanish manager is also unsure about Fernandinho's availability for the match, with the Brazilian midfielder still recovering from a knee injury.
