Andy Robertson has attributed Liverpool’s relentlessness to an impeccable attitude on the training ground.
The Reds are currently enjoying the longest league winning streak in their history, having rattled off 13 consecutive victories.
Their ability to consistently grind out results is remarkable, with only one loss tarnishing their record since May 2018.
And for Robertson, Jurgen Klopp’s Melwood regime is at the heart of it.
The Scot says the boss won’t the squad drop their level by ‘even one percent’ during the week, ensuring they approach every match with the right mentality.
“The standard is high and that’s why we get the best out of each other on a Saturday – because every single day we demand more,” he told the Scottish FA, as quoted by Liverpoolfc.com.
“The manager is the one that dictates that, and his staff behind him. They don’t let us drop even one per cent in training and that’s why in a game we’re usually ready to go.
“Of course we’ll have bad games and we’ll have off games, that’s only natural. But it’s not from a lack of trying and it’s not from a lack of effort because in training we put in the distances we need and the work we need, the effort and everything that goes along with it.
“Then we’re the best prepared to go into games. That’s what you need to be a top team.”
The immense hunger and self-belief which characterises this Liverpool team has proven their greatest asset over the past 12 months.
And when you combine it with a level of quality rarely seen at Anfield, you have the potential for a historic unbeaten run.
