Manchester City midfielder Rodri has told Liverpool they will have “a bad moment” this season, but knows that his side have to take advantage in the title race.

The Reds are currently leading the table with eight wins in eight games. They are eight points ahead of title rivals and defending champions Manchester City.

We have not started in the best way possible, that is clear, but we know the difficulties that we have right now (with injuries) and we know that the season is very long,” Rodri told the Mail Online . “I have touched down in England, and immediately found myself up against one of the best teams I have seen in recent years.

“They are strong. And not just on the counter-attack. They can dominate games and they can score from set-plays. But all teams have their bad moment of the season and we have to be there. It’s not so much waiting for our opponent to fail as making sure we get things right.”
