City kept within seven points of Premier League leaders Chelsea with a 3-0 win over Hull City on Monday, in which Kelechi Iheanacho struck his sixth goal of the season.
Sergio Aguero is set to return from suspension for the trip to face Liverpool on December 31 and Gabriel Jesus, fresh from winning the league title in Brazil with Palmeiras, will complete his transfer to the Etihad Stadium next month.
And Guardiola says that the prospect of having three clinical goalscorers to choose from could be vital to City’s title chances this term.
“Iheanacho didn’t play from the beginning [against Hull] but he has this talent, this quality and with Kun coming back – we cannot forget we played seven games without Kun in all competitions,” he said, as quoted by the club’s official website.
“Now Gabriel Jesus is coming so we will have of course three strikers who can sense a goal. And of course this is so important in a game like this.”
