Andrew Robertson, Liverpool’s Scottish left-back, has been discussing our comeback victory over Leicester City yesterday.
The former Hull man had a decent game marauding down the left flank and would have got an assist for his cross which led to Sadio Mane’s offside goal.
But thankfully, the team scored twice in the second-half thanks to Mo Salah, which Robbo said was partly due to Jurgen Klopp’s team-talk when we were 1-0 down.
“It was just, ‘keep going, keep trying to create the chances and be aware of the counter-attack'” Robertson told the official website.
“If we didn’t concede, we were confident that we would score, so it was all about how many goals we got.
“Luckily, we managed to get two today and it was enough to get the three points.
“Going behind so early on, we’ve had to show a lot of character and in the first half we’ve had a lot of chances to get back on level terms and not quite took them.
“Maybe people were thinking this was going to be one of those days but we’ve showed our composure in front of goal, especially Mo with the two goals.
“And I thought second half we controlled it.”
We have missed Alberto Moreno, but Robertson has done pretty well, especially considering how underused he was before the Spaniard’s injury.
Reports indicate Moreno will be back in a few games’ time and it’ll be mighty interesting to see if the 25-year-old gets straight back into the side.
Before his injury, he was playing very well, bar the nightmare 15 minutes against Sevilla, of course.
