Everyone in the world is talking about Liverpool’s dip in form, having won one of their last four matches in all competitions, drawing the three other ones. Although, if you take a closer look at the form table, Liverpool’s home record has been quite good over the season. Why is that? Well, according to Liverpool’s star leftback Andy Robertson, it’s because the atmosphere at Anfield is special.
“After the game, all the lads knew it made a big difference, even from when we were going out to warm up. There were a lot more fans in the ground than usual.” Andy Robertson told The Anfield Wrap this week. “It’s a special atmosphere regardless but when we play against Manchester United or Everton, or in the Champions League, of course it’s a bit easier to create a special atmosphere.”
“But it’s probably the games on Saturday at three o’clock where we maybe need it the most. We all pulled together in that game.
“We’ve only got nine games and half of them will be at home, so if we can create an atmosphere that makes even a small difference to the lads then it will stand us in good stead.
“Of course, it’s up to us to respond to that, which we did brilliantly against Bournemouth. It might not always be the case in games for one reason or another. But we responded well to it and it made a difference in that game. I thought the Watford game was really good as well; the early goal obviously helped.
“We’ve only got five home games left and if we can even get a slight advantage – which, playing at home, we should – why not try it?”
Liverpool have only played 5 games at home since the start of the year in January, including the game against Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
