Klopp is ‘smiley’ and calm - Liverpool defender Robertson

He added: "It is always a good response when you win".

The games themselves are quite a contrast in the top two tiers as, typically, when a team near the bottom of the Premier League visits a side near the top, they go there looking for a point with their main goal being to frustrate their opponents by parking the bus. In turn, all four corners of the ground stood and cheered, it was Klopp's heavy metal football at its finest, and it sent a message to Manchester City, highlighting just what this team is capable off.

Oh, and the second biggest gap between places anywhere in the division? The 15-point gap that separates first and sixth is more than the distance between seventh-placed Wolves and Southampton, who sit 18th!

Liverpool ended the week in the second position, after Manchester city thrashed a lackluster Chelsea side at the Etihad stadium on Sunday.

"When they came to defend, they defended properly as a unit and individually".

For the third time in four games they struck within five minutes of kick-off, this time when Raheem Sterling netted the first of his two goals.

Quarterback John Wolford Stars in AAF Debut for Arizona Hotshots
Hackenberg was benched late in the contest, as quarterback Brandon Silvers replaced him in the second half of the fourth quarter. The AAF is a much higher caliber of play than a lot of people might realize, and Hackenberg clearly isn't ready after week one.

Manchester City are practically choking on their own confidence.

Andrew Robertson believes Naby Keita produced his best performance for Liverpool in their 3-0 win against Bournemouth on Saturday.

The performance against Bournemouth, who have now lost nine away matches in succession and have suffered 13 defeats in the past 18 matches in all competitions, showed a return to the high-energy pressing game and clinical counter-attacking that has been so successful for Liverpool.

Goals from Mo Salah, Gini Wijnaldum and Sadio Mane cut down the Cherries but Robertson felt defensively Liverpool were much stronger too.

This was meant to be a top two by now, but Tottenham continue to defy those who predicted that injuries to Harry Kane and Dele Alli would cut them adrift. If they are going to win the league they need to maintain that standard every week because they can't afford to make mistakes.

For all that, the suspicion is that this remains a two-horse race for the title. Liverpool were seven points ahead a few weeks ago, but now City are definitely favourites for the title from what I am seeing. Arsenal and Chelsea are tied on 50 points, one behind United.
