Liverpool now find themselves in fourth place, five points ahead of Arsenal.
City dropped points in their last Premier League outing against Stoke and can ill afford to give up more ground to top-four rivals Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.
"It makes no sense to talk about it, but obviously I heard there was a story out there", Jurgen Klopp stated during yesterday's press conferance.
Man City's next Premier League home win will be their 200 th in the competition, becoming the 8 th team to reach this milestone.
And although seven first-team City stars have their contract expiring at the end of the season, Guardiola has rubbished talk of a mass player exodus, claiming that next season his players will continue to improve.
"That's the only thing you can do after a game like this", he said, insisting City were involved in "two really spectacular games" against a Monaco team both "really flying" and "full of confidence" in the league and in the Champions League. We usually win good games, but the bad games and the average games we need to be challenging too. Indeed, the Reds have won four consecutive league games against Man City for the first time since 1981.
"I am really convinced about the circumstances and the basis we have".

Klopp enjoyed a good record against Guardiola when they were in charge of Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich respectively, but he says reports of the Catalan's demise have been greatly exaggerated.
Klopp said that Liverpool are aware it "can be hard to play in games like this" against top opposition, but said they "have to be at our best to get anything" because "they are strong, they are good and if you get a little bit passive, they play you around".
However, Savage has tipped a different outcome this time, predicting a win in the direction of the Manchester club, as cited by William Hill's official Twitter account.
City have lost 4-1, 3-0 and 1-0 during that time - though there was a Capital One Cup triumph over the Reds - and Sterling had fairly quiet games.
"It is really good today that we could do it like this".
"Two weeks ago, we played Arsenal and he did really".
"Emre has an outstanding attitude", said Klopp.
