Depending on your perspective, Liverpool are coming off a week that saw them waste opportunities against two world giants. Regardless of where you fall on the spectrum of debate, the Reds have not scored in two games in a row. And to make matters worse, Manchester City are breathing down Liverpool’s neck just 1 point off the Reds. Andy Robertson shared his thoughts on Liverpool’s situation.
“It’s easy to say there’s a spark missing,” said the leftback. “Against United, I can’t really remember any real chances, so of course there was a spark missing. That’s why it’s hardest to win a Premier League instead of a Champions League because it’s over 38 games. You can’t play well in every game but it’s about grinding out results.
“We might well look back on these games and say, ‘You know what, a time we weren’t playing our best we ground out results and that’s what won us the league’. But we need to start getting back to playing better and attacking better.” Robertson said.
“If we’re to look at anything we need to look at the fans, the way they didn’t celebrate it but were happy we were back top of the league, happy with the point. We can look at them go, ‘You know what, fair play’.”
“We need to get used to teams doing that now,” he said. “It’s two top top-quality teams have done that to us in the last week - Bayern Munich and Man United, it doesn’t get much bigger than that.
“I think something we’re struggling with is that we need to start respecting ourselves. These teams are showing us the respect and we need to use that as a positive.”
