Despite dominating the Merseyside derby match, this weekend, had to share the spoils and Andrew Robertson gave his analysis on the result.

The young fullback was once again tasked with deputizing for the injured Moreno and he didn’t disappoint. But the 1-1 draw was not a result he and his teammates were proud of.

“I think you can see how the two teams reacted to the draw; we were heads in hands and their fans were going wild, so I think that shows what the performance was like today.

“It wasn’t a bad performance but we could have been clinical in front of goal and we probably should have been more than 1-0 up at half-time.


“They never had any chances, other than the penalty, and we’ve had a few good chances. It’s just one of the games where it wasn’t meant to be I suppose.

“We’ve had enough chances to probably win two games but other games the last few weeks we’ve been so clinical and took every chance we’ve had and today it just wasn’t meant to be. We’re disappointed with the draw but we need to dust ourselves down and move onto Wednesday now.”

Andrew Robertson was speaking to He touched on finding game time under Klopp, saying that he hopes to get a run of matches over the upcoming Christmas period.

The Scottish left-back finished up his commentary by putting in some words for the top scorer, , 16 matches into the 2017/2018 season.

“When he comes onto his left foot, everyone stands up because they think it could be a goal and he just keeps on doing it time after time.

“He had another few chances but his goals this season have been phenomenal and probably not many people expected him to score that many from the wing.

“We need him to keep going and we need all the other boys to keep chipping in if we can and I’m sure we’ll be fine.”

Next up, Salah will test himself against Ahmed Hegazi when Liverpool host West Brom at Anfield. The match is on Wednesday, 13th December from 10pm CLT.
