Cape Town - Andrew Robertson insists Liverpool and Manchester City are not the only contenders to lift the Premier League trophy at the end of the season.

The Reds hosted City at Anfield on Sunday in what many considered to be a clash of the two teams most qualified to win the title this season, but after the 0-0 draw Robertson stated that Chelsea and Arsenal are not to be underestimated.

"We feel we can compete with any team but people seem to be just dismissing other teams and making it a two-horse race, which is not the case," the Liverpool defender told Sky Sports News.

"We played Chelsea last week, who were excellent. They have been on a great run.

"You see teams like Arsenal with a new manager putting great results together so there is a long way to go and there will be a lot of teams competing but we hope we are one of them."

Manchester City, Chelsea, and Liverpool are all on 20 points after the first eight games of the season, while Arsenal and Tottenham are two points behind in fourth and fifth respectively.
