Manchester City's Bernardo Silva celebrates scoring against Fulham

Liverpool rode their luck as they registered a vital 2-1 win over Tottenham, with a combination of errors between Hugo Lloris and Toby Alderweireld giving them the last minute victor that sent them back to the top of the league.

Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: 'I don't apologise - I'm a massive Liverpool fan and I'm desperate for them to win the league!

During the 2013-14 season, Liverpool literally had one hand on the Premier League trophy but somehow they managed to let it slip and most people feel that Jurgen Klopp's men are just not experienced enough to hold their nerves at such a crunch time.

After Liverpool had much the better of the first half, Spurs took command in the second period and levelled in the 70th minute through Lucas Moura.

And Robertson admitted the overriding feeling when Alderweireld knocked the ball into his own net in the final minute was pure relief. "The big teams always find a way to get the points and that's what we did today".

"I always think it's an advantage to play first".

Pakistan vs Australia - Highlights & Stats
It's been really positive last couple of months and we have been building nicely". The resounding win marked a remarkable turnaround in fortunes for Australia .

"But these lads go right to the end, another late victor - yes, it's a bit fortunate but we fought right until the end".

"The important thing was to get three points".

"Relief is the word". They will also surpass every single Manchester United points total in the Premier League era, with Sir Alex Ferguson logging his highest points total 91, in the 1999/2000 campaign.

"Probably at the start of the season we wouldn't have left Virgil in that position but we knew we had to win this game, that's why maybe we left ourselves open at the back - and he did magnificently to keep it at a draw". You go back to the Merseyside derby with the Origi goal.

"There were lots of questions being thrown at Liverpool and they weren't really answering them".

Back to back Premier League titles, something we haven't seen in a decade, combined with their other trophies shows just how elite this City side is.
