Liverpool

Reds star Robertson sets sights on City

5th March 2019, 14:29 by Gareth Freeman

Andy Robertson says Liverpool will be ready to capitalise on any mistakes Manchester City make in the title race.

The Anfield side lost the advantage in the battle for Premier League glory over the weekend as they were held to a 0-0 draw in the Merseyside derby at Everton.

City are the new league leaders as they saw off Bournemouth 1-0 on Saturday, and the defending champions now have a one point lead with nine games to play.

Robertson says the battle is far from over and he is confident Liverpool will be able to take advantage of any City slip ups and move back to the top of the pile.

"We're only a point behind City," he told the club website.

"There's still only a game twist if they drop points, so we're there to capitalise on that [and] that's what we've got to do.

"They've been good at closing the gap on us and have taken over from us. They've been good at piling on the pressure, but now we do that to them and hopefully they feel it because we will push them the whole way.

"We'll push right to the final whistle and kick against Wolves in the last game of the season. If we fall short, we fall short, if we don't then great.

"But we'll fight for everything now and we'll push them the whole way. If they drop points then we need to be in a position to capitalise on that like they've done to us."

Liverpool take on Burnley in the Premier League on Sunday and may be further behind City by the time they kick-off as the Manchester outfit host Watford the day before.

Punters may wish to use their free bet to back the Reds to beat the Clarets, who have just three wins in 20 away games across all competitions this season.
