Robertson: Title race not just a two horse race

Liverpool vs. Manchester City final score, recap: Mahrez misses penalty kick in a scoreless draw Mahrez miss leaves City, Liverpool and Chelsea all level at top

A 0-0 draw at Anfield with City on Sunday ensured that the Reds preserved their unbeaten league record heading into the worldwide break, with a game against Huddersfield at the John Smith's Stadium next up in two weeks' time.

Before the start of the new Premier League season, everyone had their money on Manchester City to defend their league title.

Any prolonged lay-off however would be a major blow for Liverpool as they look to keep up their flying start to the season and repeat their European heroics.

He has never produced his best form at his old club - losing all four games with City - and was a substitute for their most recent clash in April, when City were beaten 3-0 in the Champions League quarterfinal. You can get three points or one point or no points.

Sunday will see a top of the table Premier League clash as Liverpool welcome Manchester City to Anfield. We have played City often and they are outstanding.

"I liked friendly games, but I took them like a test to test new players", he added.

The stalemate at Anfield means City, Liverpool and Chelsea - all unbeaten after eight games - are locked together on 20 points, with the defending champions top by virtue of their superior goal difference.

Both managers approached the game as if it was an important one in the title race.

Elsewhere, Tottenham stayed in the title hunt with a 1-0 win at bottom club Cardiff while Manchester United stormed back from two goals down to beat Newcastle and give manager Jose Mourinho some breathing space. Can Klopp get Salah, Mane and Firmino firing?

"He had the courage and the balls to take the penalty, in training he shoots ideal penalties but sometimes it happens", he said. Clearly, from the way they set up, neither of them wanted to be beaten, rather than both going looking for the win.

Liverpool are nine points better off than at the same stage last season, and Van Dijk remains satisfied, if not complacent.

Yes it made for a drab game this time, but their real battle is only just beginning.
