Liverpool defender Andrew Robertson insists a first Premier League defeat of the season by rivals Manchester City will not be decisive in the title race.

"I think it's a good learning [opportunity] for all the young players to adapt about the situations of the pitch, of the tradition, and to take this good feeling about the cup". The question for the rest of the league season is which City we are going to see, working on the assumption that Liverpool will remain fairly consistent. All the jargon, all the tactics, all the angles were covered: good defending from both teams out of possession and in possession, really high-quality closing down, excellent, crisp passing, and passing easily, no individual mistakes or people out of position. It's now a little bit more interesting.

But football is as unpredictable as life, and Klopp's red army will hope to not repeat their nightmarish performances once again. It was a really tough games for both teams.

It's touch, pass, move, and he plays the efficient game, and Paul knows he's at his best when he plays that game. Against the top sides, you need even more luck. "More importantly at Manchester United , the players are happy".


Tottenham's back-up options are arguably the most limited but City's recent three defeats came when they failed to cope without key starters such as Fernandinho, David Silva and Kevin De Bruyne.

"I saw the picture of the one were Sadio hit the post and then the deflection - it was millimetres, but they're the fine margins", said Robertson.

This indicates that the former Sevilla star could move on for free in the summer as he continues to struggle for game-time on a regular basis under Klopp on Merseyside.

A regular for Germany, Werner has pace and skill to go with his attacking threat in the final third and if there is a chance for Liverpool to grab their man this month, it would be foolish to pass it up. "But it's all okay, we lost the game because they scored two and we scored one". If he hits Mo [Salah] more he is out for the season. "We went toe to toe with a very aggressive team and we matched them", he added.
