Robertson: Title race not just between Liverpool and City

Arsenal are making a habit of winning 3 points every week.

The league normally starts to take shape after eight to 10 games, and when I look at the top and bottom of the table, it is not too far away from how I think it will finish in May.

The Nations League was introduced this year by European soccer's governing body UEFA largely to replace friendly matches with competitive games in a mini-group format.

I also have my concerns about Sarri's side defensively, namely with David Luiz playing in a four-man defence. I was confident, so I was not happy that they did not allow me.

The vice-captain has been an integral part of the team in the opening months of the season, largely being a key starter in the centre of the park. You can watch all the action Live & Exclusive via beIN SPORTS Connect.

"We aim to improve every game, even if it is against Chelsea, for example, and we want to win every game". It's true under a new manager and management they may not look as risky as City or Liverpool but surely they will be the dark horses or will at least make the opposition team tremendously hard to get the 3 points this season.

After four goal-filled meetings with City last season, the latest clash between Jürgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola's men failed to spark in similar fashion.

They have been vocal in their support of him at matches, and this situation suits the United manager. We conceded the first goal, and that changed the game.

While Jordan Henderson and Naby Keita have rotated, Milner-along with Gini Wijnaldum-has been pretty much a staple in the Reds' starting lineup.

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.

"We played City now very often and they are just outstanding".

Robertson, who enjoyed a strong outing against Pep Guardiola's side, said any claims the race for the title was between only Liverpool and City were wrong.

Raheem Sterling will be relishing his return to Anfield, and the England attacker is likely to be handed a starting role on Sunday evening.

"If Liverpool are in a really good position in January, I think they've got to be looking to address that [midfield area]", Carragher said post-match.
