The race for the English Premier League title is very close, but for Andrew Robertson, his team has to focus on itself, not on its rivals.

Liverpool is currently in the first position of the English Premier League.

The Reds are just two points ahead of second-place Manchester City, but they have played one more match than their rivals.

This is why Liverpool player Andrew Robertson said they should focus on themselves and not on what they can do for the rest of the season and not what the Citizens will do.

“We had the golf on. I wanted Tiger to win it,” the Reds captain was honest as he told The Daily Mail.

“I was watching it with James Milner in the treatment room. I’m sure some of the lads were aware of the City score but it wasn’t something we spoke about.”

He added: “We didn’t know the City result beforehand but because we hadn’t heard anything we just guessed they had won.”

Analysis – Joel Matip shines in Liverpool’s win over Cardiff

It’s not often that someone in Liverpool’s defence has outshone Virgil van Dijk this season, but Joel Matip certainly did that in the win over Cardiff City.

“This is the first time a lot of us have found ourselves in a position like this and you have to enjoy experiences like this.”

“I think we’re all enjoying it. You saw that with our performance against Chelsea,” he continued.

“Hopefully, we’ll be celebrating come the end. But we know there’s a lot of hard work still to be done.”

“We want to go as far as possible in the Champions League and we’re taking it right to the wire in the Premier League, whether we win it or not remains to be seen,” Robertson concluded.
