Best Tweets - 'Just in: Riyad Mahrez penalty has landed'

If Liverpool and City draw it could benefit Chelsea if they manage to defeat Southampton in Sunday's earlier game held on the south coast. "They had an outstanding season, I respect it a lot - I love it, actually".

Arsenal have won six consecutive games in the league and sit just two points behind the leaders, with Unai Emery's side in the top four for the first time in 2018. So three of eight games against their rivals, and to be where they are without the front three firing, it's massively positive'.

What concerns me more about Spurs is still the strength of their squad and whether it is deep enough compared to the likes of City, Liverpool and Chelsea.

We have not seen that approach from Guardiola before, but if Riyad Mahrez's late penalty had gone in, his gameplan would have worked to perfection.

The German has taken charge of 114 league games in total, meaning you can work out his record in three separate batches of 38 games.

The Reds are struggling to hit top gear in the final third, with the City game another example of the attack not firing.

The right-back also had two of his side's four shots, which is a rather damning indictment of the midfield and forward line's goal threat. The Reds looked a little jaded midweek in the Champions League encounter away to Napoli, a game which they eventually lost 1-0 after a stoppage-time strike from Lorenzo Insigne.

Salah, Mane and Firmino have all been wonderful signings, and are elite footballers, but it's fair to say they are all lacking a spark at the moment.

That made it a totally different game to their meetings last season.

"That's why I say going away is not a big problem but now you call a manager of any country and ask him to leave out one or two players and he says, "I am under pressure as well" because now it's Nations League".

"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 News.

"He had the courage and the balls to hit the penalty". Whose on the pitch, whose playing well, taking them well in training.
