Robertson: Title race not just between Liverpool and City

  • Pep Guardiola is the world’s best manager says Jurgen Klopp

Yet it was an absorbing game and one that ended with both Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola proving that they can organise a back four as well as a front three.

The blessed relief of a last-gasp penalty miss saw Liverpool play out a scoreless draw against the visiting Manchester City at Anfield this evening and finish out the last in a punishing run of fixtures that saw them play seven games in 22 days.

Arsenal, meanwhile, have won all of their last six league games as part of a nine-match winning run in all competitions.

"We feel we can compete with any team but people seem to be just dismissing other teams and making it a two-horse race, which is not the case", Robertson told Sky Sports.

He's a footballer who plays in the position of striker and so it really isn't very surprising that scoring goals is pretty much his modus operandi and probably his favourite thing to do in the world.

In a boost to oil companies, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on Wednesday eased the overseas borrowing norms by up to $10 billion. Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Saturday assured the markets that the government would not go back to regulating fuel prices .

City pasted Liverpool 5-0 in their first league clash last season, but the Reds enjoyed the rub of the green after that with a 4-3 victory at Anfield and would go on to defeat the Citizens 5-1 over two legs in the Champions League quarter-final.

City boss Pep Guardiola reined in their attacking intent during Sunday's goalless draw at Anfield with a first-half performance in particular which was the most restrained of any since his arrival in England.

"But they still pressed and still tried to play their game".

"Mahrez hasn't hit the ground running at Manchester City - he's not been wonderful since joining and he's fighting with some really good players to get into the team".

"We stood strong and showed great mental strength", said Stones after the game.

Liverpool are outstanding at what they do but they can not rely on their high-tempo approach every single time. We have to all keep going and now it is internationals.

The two teams started the highly anticipated encounter locked together at the top of the standings and City looked set to beat Juergen Klopp's Liverpool when Mahrez ballooned his spot kick way over the crossbar, after substitute Leroy Sane had been brought down by Virgil van Dijk.

The result means City go top, ahead of both Chelsea and Liverpool on goal difference, with all three teams tied on 20 points.

We have not seen that approach from Guardiola before, but if Riyad Mahrez's late penalty had gone in, his gameplan would have worked to perfection.
