Rodrigo has claimed that luck played a huge part in his side’s defeat to Liverpool.

Pep Guardiola’s men were outclassed by a vibrant Liverpool side on Sunday. Man City traveled to Anfield in the hope to close down the point gap. Instead, they now lag nine points behind Liverpool. And Rodrigo feels a lot of that was a result of Liverpool’s fortune.

Manchester City midfielder Rodrigo assured that his team performed better at Anfield. But due to controversial decisions and the opponent’s decisiveness, they fell behind. In a report by Goal.com, Rodrigo also mentioned that he is confident that City can spring back and fight for the title.

“I think we were much better overall. We created more chances than them, but they arrive to our goal three times and scored three goals.

“We are leaving with a bittersweet feeling, because we wanted to win. I don’t think they have been much better than us, but they have scored the chances they had.

“They are very strong at the moment and they are having everything right,” Rodrigo said.

“We have been brave, we have tried during the 90 minutes, we never gave up. We have had to face several blows along the game.”

“Last season, the team was seven points behind and it could have been 10 in case of losing [at Southampton], and they managed to win the league in the end. We are in November. There is still a lot of games left,” Rodrigo concluded.
