Manchester City star Rodri has dismissed suggestions rivals Liverpool are in crisis, with the midfielder insisting Liverpool are just no longer effective.

While City remain unbeaten after seven games and just a point behind league leaders Arsenal, Liverpool sit eighth in the table, having won just two of their opening six games.

Rodri told Gazzetta dello Sport: “The Premier League level is so high that as soon as you slow down, you lose points.

“Liverpool are not in crisis, they are just less effective, and the Premier League does not allow you to relax.”
