Though he was hardly at fault for the game, it’s a position that Andrew Robertson agrees with.
“It was a hard one because we took the lead and this season we’ve been really good at holding on to leads”, Robertson told the official Liverpool website. “I thought that was going to be the case”.
“We lost a poor goal from our point of view. If you look back on the game they probably had more possession but the clear-cut chances have all fallen to us.
“On another day we could have been a bit more comfortable, but two good teams went at it and a draw is probably a fair result.”
Being honest about the side’s weaknesses, Robertson went on to say that “if you look at last season, especially away from home against the so-called top six teams, we didn’t do well enough.
“The only point we picked up was here [at Arsenal], 3-3, so we’ve kind of rectified that a bit in the games that we’ve played [so far this season].
“We are unbeaten against the top six so it’s positive but we could have quite easily won. Hopefully at the end of the season it will be a point gained – but just now it doesn’t feel like that.”
Discussing Virgil van Dijk’s opportunities, Robertson said that “when he chested it [for the first chance], I thought ‘Goal’. But it was just unlucky and was right at the ‘keeper. He probably ran out of space.
“And then his header towards the back end of the first half was unlucky as well. He had a couple of chances and I’m sure he will be disappointed even though he’s a centre-back; on another day he could have had a couple of goals.”
There’s no doubt that Robertson is one of Liverpool’s most reliable performers. Long may his good form continue.
