Fabinho learning and adapting to Klopp's methods

Fabinho learning and adapting to Klopp's methods

Andy Robertson has warned Liverpool FC that Arsenal and Chelsea FC can not be underestimated in the Premier League title race. Every team in the Premier League wants that, but it's only for a few of them.

Chelsea have the same points as Liverpool and Man City and now sit second on the league table - based on their goal difference.

Pep Guardiola's side suffered three defeats to the Reds last season in the league and Champions League and, as a result, took a more cautious approach than normal at Anfield. We have to embrace it.

There is no getting away from it, Liverpool's first meeting of the season with Manchester City did not even come close to the blockbuster clashes of last season.

But under their new manager Unai Emery, the Gunners have made sure they keep a close eye on the league leaders and now just 2 points behind them.

"I don't exactly know what you can win but there is some final next summer or something so that's it".

Jurgen Klopp's side have started the season well domestically, accumulating 20 points from their first eight games, and now sit joint-top of the table alongside Manchester City and Chelsea ahead of the worldwide break.

"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 on Sunday.

Unlike the four meetings between the clubs in 2017-18, the 0-0 against City was an encounter with little in the way of genuine goalscoring opportunity.

"[After] 85 minutes, you obviously get a bit tired", explained Van Dijk, according to the Manchester Evening News.

And Wijnaldum added his opinion to the consensus that a draw was a fair outcome. And Arsenal are two points behind, yeah?

Much like with Alisson's mistake earlier in the season, everyone will simply be happy that the error did not cost them the game.
