Andy Robertson has insisted that Liverpool will win the title if they remain above Man City.
Liverpool emerged victorious against Man City on Sunday. The Reds managed to take an early lead through Fabinho which helped them raise their morale. Andy Robertson has insisted that his team’s win against the titleholders will be crucial in the title race.
Andy Robertson played a huge part in Liverpool 3-1 victory over Pep Guardiola’s men. The Scott played an accurately measured cross for Mohamed Salah to head it home. On Liverpool’s official website, Robertson expressed his satisfaction after beating their rivals.
“Both of us were in a league of their own last year and it looks as if there’s going to be a couple of others sniffing about this year. But I still believe if you finish above Man City then I think you’ll get the title.
“It’s a massive win for us and it’s just another one that we’ve got to tick off. There’s still a long, long way to go, but it’s always nice to beat your rivals.”
Robertson then went on to analyze the game that took place at Anfield earlier.
“After that then we’ve gone up the park again and scored and got 2-0. We stayed calm, we stayed composed and we knew the next goal was so crucial because if Man City scored then we know how good they can be. Luckily Sadio [Mane] got on the end of a delightful cross by Hendo [Jordan Henderson].
“Then we had to dig deep, we did. We were tired and had to dig deep as they threw everything at us. It’s easier when they’re chasing the game and they’ve got nothing to lose. We had to dig deep and I think we defended really well.”
