  • Jurgen Klopp on the sidelines at Anfield

The Premier League leaders travel to West Ham United tonight with the Champions League round of 16, first-leg tie against Bayern Munich looming on February 19. We have a very hard game yet listening to some people it seems we are already through because "It's only Bayern Munich".

"I think it is easier for the Reds to play away from Anfield because of the massive expectancy when they are at home".

Reds chief Jurgen Klopp admits having Gomez out longer than expected is a major blow as the club prepare for a dual challenge in the Premier League and Champions League. "The Engineer" also knows how hard it'll be for City competing on four fronts, meaning they have more fixtures than either Liverpool or Tottenham.

"You make the decision in the moment you have to and then people judge it later", he said.

Joel Matip is set to continue to partner Virgil van Dijk at centre-half, with Dejan Lovren only recently back from the hamstring injury he picked up last month.

However, Guardiola believes that West Ham United will be able to offer a stern test of Liverpool FC's title credentials during Monday's game.

With regular right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold out injured, Klopp was questioned about his decision to allow Nathaniel Clyne to join Bournemouth on loan at the start of the January transfer window but the German said he had no regrets. After the game in Newcastle, Liverpool were seven points ahead and now they are two.

But going into the game Hammers boss Manuel Pellegrini made a case for Tottenham too with comments that won't please West Ham fans. Probably. We are still in the race and if we dropped points or whatever, then it's still a point against Leicester. Let's carry on again. It was an bad result against Wimbledon and then again against Wolves. We can not change that.

Speaking to Sky Sports after Sunday's game about Liverpool FC, Guardiola said: "I understand pressure, pressure to win the games".
