Pep Guardiola says he ‘absolutely’ feels extra responsibility for his actions on the touchline ahead of Man City’s Carabao Cup clash with Liverpool – after Jurgen Klopp saw red during their incident-filled last meeting

Pep Guardiola and Liverpool assistant Pep Lijnders joined forces to insist that it is their duty to set an example for supporters on the touchline on Thursday night.

Manchester City host the Reds in the Carabao Cup fourth round, the biggest domestic fixture since the World Cup and one that has previously spilled over in the stands.

‘We want to behave good – the players, the managers, the spectators – but sometimes emotions and many things happen.

‘People can’t behave like they’re marble, like ice cold when you’re disallowed a goal in these type of games. 

‘We will always react in that way but respect for the officials, the rules and the opponent is always there from my point of view.’

Lijnders said: ‘Top sport is emotion, top sport is going to the edge, top sport is seeing the line and you want to go over it but you halt yourself.

‘With rivalry comes emotion and that’s good because we need emotions from the stands, from our players. The only problem with emotion is when there’s no respect, it becomes really harmful and that can’t happen.
