West Ham scouts have watched La Liga defender Diego Llorente

Speaking at a lecture at Liverpool University earlier this week, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola said that he "can't be f*****d" reading about Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp every week.

City remain unbeaten in the league, along with Liverpool and Chelsea, but Aguero said it would be tough to emulate Arsenal's "Invincibles" by going the entire season without a defeat.

He won three La Liga titles and two Champions League trophys with the Spanish side before topping the Germany table for three years running.

"I start to read and then I start to think "Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp" and I can not focus!"

He played seven times in the Premier League, but completed 90 minutes on just three occasions- making his comeback in a 5-0 win over Swansea City in April, before also featuring against Huddersfield Town and Brighton, playing a total of 47 minutes.

City are now two points clear of Liverpool and four above Chelsea 12 matches into the campaign, but the gap between them and the chasing pack belies their clear superiority.

José Mourinho's side are now sitting in eighth position after 12 games - a mammoth 12 points behind their city rivals and table-toppers. 'They are very confident - all of them - they play good football, they play attacking football and they have a good dynamic. Hopefully they can make good decisions for both sides, and a good game, like all England and all Europe is going to watch us.

They club will follow up their Premier League match against West Ham with European showdown against Lyon on Tuesday to close out the month of November ahead of a December schedule that will see City play nine times. "We lost, but we have the second game at Old Trafford and we will see".
