The Liverpool footballer hopes Leicester City can keep Manchester City from winning the three points on Monday’s match.

Liverpool defeated Newcastle United 3-2 on Saturday’s English Premier League fixture to take the first place of the table with 94 points.

But behind them, Manchester City is in second place with 92 points and one match less, this game will be played tomorrow night between the Citizens and Leicester City.

This is why Reds’ Andrew Robertson wants the Foxes to beat, or at least draw, with City in Monday night.

“I don’t know [if I will watch it],” Robertson was quoted by Goal.

“I’ve not shied away from the other ones, it’s not worked, so maybe I’ll try something different!”

“Look, if I watch it or don’t watch it, it’s not going to make a difference. I’m a Celtic fan, Brendan’s left us so he maybe owes me one!” he added.

“Leicester City are a good team but Manchester City are unbelievable, they’ve had eight days to recover from a heavy schedule, so we are expecting City to get off to a good start so hopefully Leicester can hold on.”

“We won’t expect anything but all we can do is take it down to the last game. We’ve done that so we’ll look forward to next Sunday,” he concluded.
