After a terrific added time victory against PSG at Anfield, it’s hard to find a player who didn’t make a good show of it.
Andy Robertson certainly did some excellent stuff. The left back kept Kylian Mbappe in check for the 90 minutes, while still offering a strong attacking threat. And the man himself had nothing but positives to say.
“This club and the fans have been waiting for the Champions League to come back since May”, BBC Sport report Robertson as saying. “We got a good start and made it hard for ourselves but there is nothing better than a late goal.
“I felt we controlled it. We lost a goal just before half-time but controlled the second-half before a sloppy pass and they broke on us. That was the only time opened us up.
”At that point we thought a draw would be it but we found a second wind and the chances kept coming.
”We are good at getting in people’s faces, especially at home when we know the fans will get behind us. You heard the fans at the end they are a different class.”
More positive noises came from Daniel Sturridge. Astonishingly playing his first Champions League game for Liverpool, the striker added that “it was a great to score and it was a great ball by this man here [Robertson]. Him and Trent [Alexander-Arnold] have got a competition going on, so it was good to help him out”.
Talking of his personal career, Sturridge said that “the last time [he played in the competition] was for Chelsea when we won it, so it is great to contribute to the team today, but it’s early days so we aren’t going to get ahead of ourselves. It is a team here and everybody is going to add to the wealth of the club.”
Everything is clicking right now for Liverpool. Beyond the usual front three, players are contributing well and helping us win huge games. Keep up the good work, boys.
