Rodri says workload hitting Man City campaign

Manchester City midfielder Rodri admits title rivals Liverpool are the "best team in England and in Europe".

The 23-year-old Spanish global joined Man City from boyhood club Atlético Madrid in the summer for a reported £62.8m making him the club's most expensive acquisition.

Only nine other managers in Premier League history have now won more.

The highly anticipated game on October 20 could be decisive in determining the destination of the title so early in the season as Liverpool already have eight points in the lead and they would look to maintain that gap.

Jurgen Klopp's side have begun the new season in impressive form, winning eight consecutive league fixtures to open up an eight-point advantage at the top of the Premier League.

The Reds unexpectedly had to come from behind in their first game of the month against Newcastle.

Rodri believes Liverpool to be his side's biggest rivals and the best team in Europe.

The Anfield side stormed to Champions League glory last season, while Pep Guardiola's men went on to claim an unprecedented domestic treble.

The Brazilian global goalkeeper is recovering from the injury he sustained on the opening day of the Premier League against Norwich City and he has given up his one-week break to work on a fitness programme to make sure that he's fit for the Manchester United game.

'The team to beat is Liverpool now and that has been seen the last two seasons, ' he added. They are the champions of Europe so everyone wants to beat them, not just us.

"We hope we can get important players [back from injury] and when they do, that will be good for the team".
