Pep Guardiola said he will not be affected by the pressure ahead of Manchester City's title showdown with Liverpool and insists he will "sleep like a baby" ahead of the meeting at the Etihad Stadium.

Guardiola also joked he's annoyed with the Premier League for scheduling the game at 4.30 p.m. BST on Sunday when he would rather be watching Tiger Woods' comeback at the Masters.

City and Liverpool are separated by a point at the top of the table but Guardiola said he's too old to worry about the pressure and hinted he is more concerned with what might happen at Augusta.

"It will be a massive three points but there will still be seven games left, Champions League and FA Cup; it's three points," Guardiola said.

"Come on, let's try to beat them and do what we can do to beat them.

"That's why I love it and to be here today for Sunday's game. I sleep like a baby this year. I'm looking forward to Sunday.
