Andy Robertson: Premier League Win Over Palace “As Close to Perfect as We Can Get”

It’s hard to disagree, Andy.

If you haven’t heard, Liverpool beat Crystal Palace 7-0 yesterday.

That’s, like, it’s quite good, as scorelines go. Much better than losing 7-0.

The Reds were clinical the whole day, scoring some beautiful goals and never wasting a good opportunity. It was perfection. Andrew Robertson understandably recognised this.

“When you go early kick-off on the Saturday and you go first, it only works to your advantage if you pick up the points”, the left back told the official Liverpool site. “Luckily we’ve done that today in a very good fashion. We’ve taken all the chances that were presented to us – seven goals and a clean sheet and the important thing is the three points.

“Now we can sit back and enjoy the weekend of football knowing that we’ve got our three points in the bag and let’s see what unfolds. But it was as close to a perfect as we can get away from home.

“We wanted to be ruthless in everything we did. Crystal Palace had also played Sunday, Wednesday, Saturday and are maybe not as used to it as we are so we wanted to come out of the blocks fast. We wanted to come out full of energy and maybe catch them a wee bit cold and I think we managed that with Taki’s goal.

“We’re 1-0 up and then we sat back a bit and they got a wee foothold in the game, and we just had to compose ourselves again and Sadio [Mané] got a great goal. It was just about being ruthless in everything we did, whether it was counter-pressing, defending, taking our chances.

“We just tried to do it all over the park and luckily for us we took pretty much every chance that fell to us. Some great finishing and we were ruthless at the back as well and starved them of many chances.”

Liverpool are just absolutely relentless at the moment. They’re unstoppable. It’s all coming together.
