Rodri has warned Liverpool that Manchester City will “fight until the end” in the title race.
City got back to winning ways with Tuesday’s 4-1 win atBurnley, to ensure they did not fall further behind Jurgen Klopp’s runaway leaders.
Although a third straight title looks out of reach for City, Rodri, who scored a wonder strike in the Turf Moor win, said Pep Guardiola’s side will pushLiverpoolall the way.
“We still have every chance to win the title,” said Rodri.
“ Until the maths says another team has won, we will, give everything, fight until the end. We will see the best version of City now.
“It was a good night for us. It was a needed victory for the team. It was important for us. We’re doing our best, but sometimes you don’t get the results.
“It’s a long way to the end of the season but, as I say , it’s important for us. ”
City, who have already lost three times in the Premier League this season and who were held atNewcastlelast weekend to fall further behind Liverpool, were back to their best at Burnley.
In the absence of the injured Sergio Aguero, his replacement, Gabriel Jesus, scored twice, with Rodri claiming City have rediscovered their best form at just the right time.
“We started very well against our opponents and knew exactly what we wanted to do,” said Rodri. “Our intensity was there – it’s the way to do it.”
On his own performance and stunning strike, Rodri said: “It was a great goal for me at an important moment for us.
“I don’t have many chances around the area. I want to shoot and score goals when I can. I think the first adaptation myself is complete. I want to be the best version I can be.
“The result helps me to have that confidence and I’m feeling good in the team.

“We need him, all the guys in the front. It was important for him and for the team. It’s not easy to score goals, but he has the personality to do it.
