  • Van Dijk not daunted by huge transfer fee

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola revealed on Friday that the club's Brazilian striker, Gabriel Jesus, will be fit for the Champions League game against Basel.

They thrashed 10-man Liverpool 5-0 in the reverse fixture at the Etihad early in the season.

Liverpool host Manchester City at Anfield in what should be this weekend's most exciting game.

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk admits he is flattered by his world-record £75m price tag but insists that does not mean he will stop working for his place in the team.

"If you want to win titles you have to win these kind of games".

There have only been five longer unbeaten streaks in the top flight than Manchester City's current run of 30 matches: Arsenal's 49 games in 2003-2004, Nottingham Forest's 42 in 1977-1978, Chelsea with 40 in 2004-2005, Leeds United's 34 in 1968-1969 and Liverpool's 31 in 1987-1988.

"This season we were able to do that but we still have to go to Anfield, to Tottenham - there are still lots of games to play".

"We have to make the best of it". This kind of game shows your mentality.

Guardiola said: "He was (this week) in Barcelona and the news is quite good".

Asked why he chose Liverpool, Van Dijk, who also played for Celtic for two seasons, said: "I think the size of the club, the fans, the players, the manager, the whole package here is fantastic. He's more mature, and of course he has to be calm and play the game he has to play".

Arsenal's 49 games in 2003-2004 is now top, followed by Nottingham Forest's 42 in 1977-1978, Chelsea with 40 in 2004-2005, Leeds's 34 in 1968-1969 and Liverpool's 31 in 1987-1988.
