Premier League champions Liverpool were outplayed by runner up Manchester City on Thursday evening, with the Cityzens having a comfortable 4-0 win at Etihad.

The Reds actually dominated the start of the game but found themselves behind midway through the first half when Joe Gomez brought Raheem Sterling down in the area and Kevin De Bruyne converted form twelve yards.

However, things soon went from bad to worse as Sterling scored his first goal against his former club and then Phil Foden struck a great strike past Alisson.

For Sterling’s goal, Robertson vacated his left-back slot to charge Rodri down in City’s half and the Scot got nowhere near, meaning Foden had more time to slip in Sterling.

Robertson’s night got even worse as he made the same mistake for Foden’s goal, allowing himself to get touch-tight to the wonderkid who played a simple ball around the corner and found himself with acres of space in order to fire past Alisson.

Owen, speaking after the big match, believed Liverpool gave too many blunders that cost them the game.

"I think Liverpool have made too many uncharacteristic mistakes," he told Premier League Productions.

"Andrew Robertson has made two of those big mistakes. He runs into no man's land there [for Sterling’s goal] he’s got to hold his position because that's where the final pass comes from Phil Foden.

"You watch the third goal [sighs] and he does exactly the same! He charges out when all he needs to do is hold his position, just plug a gap! Watch him now, he just sprints out and leaves a big hole."
