Another round of fascinating Premier League fixtures awaits at the start of 2019. Stakes high, stage set.
Liverpool are in a great position and are playing brilliant soccer, but a side that has struggled with title pressure in the Premier League era might just be one injury away from letting this lead slip.
A comprehensive win over Arsenal was Liverpool's seventh victory in December; another record.
Last season Liverpool beat City three times - twice in a Champions League quarter-final - but despite a club-record start to the season, taking the most points from the opening 20 matches, Robertson said until they have silverware in the trophy cabinet, they can not say they are on the same level.
"Of course they are going to drop points, but not too many". I'm always looking forward to these games.
A titanic top-of-the-table clash helps ring in the new year for the Premier League. In 20 matches, Robertson and Co. have conceded just eight times.
City scored nearly immediately when Ward-Prowse deflected Raheem Sterling's cross past his own goalkeeper and Agüero quickly made it 3-1.
And with Liverpool's positive results against Manchester City last season, there is no better team to beat the defending champions on their home pitch. Kamara would miss from 12 yards, but his blushes would be saved by Mitrovic's late goal in a vital 1-0 win for Claudio Ranieri's side. It promises to be a fascinating tactical tussle.
Merson feels it was the "same-old, same-old" Arsenal on show at the weekend and says he doesn't know what's changed since Unai Emery took charge as he believes we could have lost half of our games during the unbeaten run. We did quite well.
Pep Guardiola's men regained the lead in the 45th minute, when Raheem Sterling's cut-back pass was deflected against a defender, and went in. They've won the title.
Klopp has got the better of City in recent big encounters and Guardiola will need to think outside the box to stop them this time. Liverpool have progressed a lot and it is an example for us.
"The problem is the other team is fantastic", Guardiola told BBC Sport. Especially in this important part of the season, it is never good.
