Robertson insists nothing has changed despite first league defeat for Liverpool

Robertson is Liverpool’s first choice left-back

After Thursday's ferocious contest with Liverpool, which City won to cut the gap at the top to four points, changes will be made, however. "It is something when you taste it, you go, "wow, I want more of that".

The defeat was Liverpool's first in the Premier League this season, thereby ending hopes of repeating Arsenal's 2004 feat of playing the league a whole season without defeat. I have never been to the city of Liverpool, England.

"We knew before it would be a hard game and we would have to give everything to win the game", Wijnaldum told Liverpool FC's website. City also remain in contention for the Champions League, which means that, alongside their Community Shield triumph in August, Guardiola's side could still lift five trophies this season.

Simon Mignolet will get a game in goal, there will most likely be starts for Naby Keïta and Adam Lallana, and Klopp says he will have no problem at all in calling on Alberto Moreno, the left-back who went public at the end of previous year with his dissatisfaction over a lack of game time. The pressure of that alone could be enough to destabilize the Reds, so removing the unbeaten monkey off their backs may not be such a bad thing.

The victory at the Etihad lifted defending champions City to second in the Premier League, 4 points behind leaders Liverpool. "We will focus on recovering and make sure we are ready for the next game". We were unlucky at times but that's absolutely OK because when City came to Anfield they missed a late penalty.

"I don't know if we had more than four shots on target but we were quite clinical that day". He was pivotal to City capturing last season's championship alongside David Silva's genius playmaking, Kevin De Bruyne's control and their relentless attack. Everybody is going to rotate and everybody is going to play. It's the only way.' Guardiola said that he hoped that Fernandinho, who was at his tenacious, combative best in the heart of midfield, could stay fit.

"It was that or either let him go through on goal".

"We need to accept that this is what it is". In these games this kind of player always shows he is here.

The Reds beat City three times last term but Liverpool manager Klopp believes his side are a now much-improved outfit.
