Robertson: Title race not just between Liverpool and City

Manchester City's Gabriel Jesus says he was disappointed not to take his side's late penalty in the goalless Premier League draw at Liverpool on Sunday.

Gary Neville was in an unenviable position commentating on Liverpool's stalemate with Manchester City.

The previously unstoppable Liverpool registered just two efforts on target, with City mustering the same.

All three have yet to lose a match this season but while Liverpool have been touted as the main challengers to City, Chelsea have shown they deserve to be in the conversation.

"We've played City now that often and they're just outstanding". They have been on a great run. Eighty-five minutes, you obviously get a bit tired and that moment goes by in a split second and I made a decision to dive in, which is not what I would normally do.

The Brazil worldwide was highly regarding during his three years playing in Ligue 1 but since his move to Anfield he has only made three appearances and has yet to make his Premier League debut after eight games. "So as usual, he'll give all of us the flawless advice to keep getting wins, because that's all that matters".

West Ham's Michail Antonio was the last opposition player to find the net there on 24 February, a spell of nearly nine-and-a-half matches.




"As a back four, that's what we go into every game going for". If it is an open game at Anfield, you don't even have one percent of a chance because they are so good, they play for that. I think Arsenal have done very well and Unai Emery has done very well but I don't think they're going to be challenging for the title.

To his credit, he didn't exactly sulk, but he had a look on his face which told you everything you needed to know. There was a lot of pressure on it and he put it over the bar.

When is "parking the bus" actually a disciplined, well-executed plan to nullify an opposing team's biggest strength in the pursuit of a positive result?

Pep Guardiola gets the better of most teams and opposition managers, with the Spaniard turning City into one of the most dominant Premier League sides in history.

"It was always the aim (to stay unbeaten) looking at this period".

A more reasonably hard and reasonably spaced-out set of games can see the reds return to playing with the zip of a month ago and keep their title challenge on track.
