MANCHESTER -- Pep Guardiola has refused to comment on Manchester City's interest in signing Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal during the January transfer window.

Sanchez, 29, has been linked with City and local rivals Manchester United ahead of his contract expiring at the end of the season.

But Guardiola insists his focus is on City's Premier League clash with Liverpool on Sunday.

"I am not going to answer, I understand the question, you do your job, you know my answer, I am focused on [the game against Liverpool]. If I was my players I would not want my manager talking about other things," he told a news conference.

"Everyone knows the quality of Alexis -- but it's Liverpool I am sorry I ca not answer about Alexis and other players."

Premier League leaders City go into Sunday's game against fourth-placed Liverpool 15 points clear at the top of the table.

But Guardiola maintained that the game at Anfield was crucial in City's bid to become champions.
