Rangers boss Gerrard: Scottish Premiership title race is wide open

"I don't think Rangers were better than us". Hearts must spend the global break ensuring they react positively after losing for the first time this season at Ibrox. They have good players and a good way to play.

"We went to war with them, matched them, then our football shone through", he said.

The on-loan Liverpool winger, who played the full game, helped his team on their way to three points with the opening goal three minutes into the encounter at Ibrox. But he best go to his owners and ask for an terrible lot of money if he wants James Tavernier. "This group of players we have got, I'm sure are of the same mindset".

"You have to be ready, you need a fantastic football team - which thank God I have - with outstanding character, ready to be really courageous, ready to make mistakes".

Liverpool are on a run of eight consecutive home clean sheets, one away from equaling the club record. We understand that. We respect it.

Fulham's powerful Serbian forward Aleksandar Mitrovic also had a number of half-chances but was unable to get any clear shots in on goal, with perhaps his best attempt a thumped volley over the bar from outside the area.

And Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri insisted the 30-point gap between Chelsea and champions City last season is too much to make up in one campaign.

City travel to Anfield this weekend in an eagerly anticipated early-season clash of the Premier League's top two sides.

But winger Daniel Candeias has vowed Gerrard's men will take their Ibrox form to Hamilton in their next match on October 21 after the global break.

But Emery, perhaps mindful that tougher challenges lie ahead, was wary about Arsenal being labelled title contenders. A performance that harps back to former European ties against Maribor and Osijek in which Morelos put a goal and an assist past the former in a 3-1 win and scored a crucial away goal against the latter.

"But the crowd was in a lot of moments really unhappy with the Napoli performance".

"On the back of a disappointing result at Livingston, the game becomes more important for us", he told RangersTV.

"They have good players and a good way to play".

"On the other hand, I'm disappointed we gifted Rangers goals early in the match and didn't score when we had opportunities". But Alfredo is helping the team all the time.

Fulham pressed forward in the opening minutes as they looked for their first win over Arsenal since January 2012, and Argentine midfielder Luciano Vietto very almost beat Gunners keeper Bernd Leno in the second minute.

A rare incisive Liverpool counter-attack found Salah again in a good position 21 minutes from time, but he blazed high over the bar.

Liverpool did a good job of compressing the space in front of their defence, making it harder for the likes of City midfielders David Silva and Bernardo Silva to create.

"Once we scored and got it back to 3-1, you saw how nervous Rangers were". But the worldwide break now is important.
