Prowse ‘dive’ vs Manchester City: Should Southampton have had a penalty?

English Premier League: Manchester City 3-1 Southampton

LIVERPOOL took another significant step towards a first top-flight title in 29 years by thrashing Arsenal 5-1 to open up a seven-point lead at the top of the English Premier League, thanks also to Tottenham's collapse at home to Wolves.

Win at the Etihad, and they will be 10 points clear of Pep Guardiola's side having played them home and away.

They don't have to be like Man City and win by three goals.

"We won a lot of games but unfortunately we lost two and we have a rival who at the moment is the best team in Europe, or in the world", he added. "Arsenal had been playing pretty well this season so we had to stay focused on them, not think about City", said the defender.

"Most of the Premier League champions in the past 20 years won it with less points".

"Hendo came in on Saturday and played the half-space and helped so much with how we defended".

"We have finished 2018 now pretty well and hopefully we can keep that going".

Robertson does not believe that victory can be compared to the challenge awaiting Liverpool on Thursday given the two-legged, knock-out nature of the previous meeting.

'Of course we hope that we win it but we know how hard it is and we know two teams (City and Tottenham), probably even more, are right behind us and causing us all sorts of problems.

"I know the distance is big, seven points, especially because they're so solid and consistent".

Spurs were in total control in the first half but the strains of 29 games in three competitions on a stretched squad in the first five months of the season began to show in a exhausted performance after the break. We are not going to treat it different to any other.

But next up they face arguably their toughest assignment of the season with a trip to face City at the Etihad. "It's about continuing that and trying to build on every game that we play". Obviously everyone came around us and it looked like we were fighting or something but we weren't.

"Now (we have) to check what we have been doing wrong, try to improve those areas and start winning games as fast as possible".

"This will go the whole way, but we're in a good position just now". It was a scintillating match, and one that we'll remember as the best of the year.

"If they let this one go, wow, Liverpool man".
