The team was able to continue looking for the double, as they are still in the UEFA Champions League and at the top of the English Premier League table.

Liverpool’s last seven days have been fantastic. Not only they defeated Burnley 4-2 and Fulham 2-1 in the English Premier League.

They also trashed Bayern Munich at Allianz Arena 3-1 in the UEFA Champions League to advance to the Quarterfinals.

The Reds are currently in the first position of the English table with 76 points, two ahead of second-place Manchester City who is one game behind in action.

“It gets to this point in the season where people are fighting for their lives from relegation, and that’s so tough,” said Liverpool footballer Andrew Robertson to RTÉ.

“People are fighting for European spots and positions and trying to get in the top 10 and stuff.”

“It’s very rare that teams aren’t playing for anything at this time of the season so people start fighting and giving it their all. Luckily, we had enough in the tank,” he added.

“(It was) a massive week for us. Obviously beating Burnley at home was difficult, as they are in a similar position to Fulham, and we fell behind there.”

“Bayern speaks for itself, and then it was all about trying to get our legs ready and go again and go flying into the international break top of the league, and luckily enough we have done that,” he explained.

Seven matches are left in the 2018-2019 Premier League season and Liverpool will have to aim to win all of them if the team wants to lift the title at the end of the season.

Meanwhile, they will take on Portugal’s Porto in the UEFA Champions League Quarterfinals.
