Andy Robertson has played down the Reds’ impeccable start to the Premier League campaign – rightly pointing out that there is a long, long way to go yet in the title race.
After Manchester City beat Watford 8-0 on Saturday, it was over to the Reds to put down a marker of their own – and they did, just about, manage that.
After the match, Robertson said, via the Daily Mail: “We’re not looking at the table just yet, there is still a long, long way to go. Don’t get me wrong, it’s lovely to be five points clear but there are going to be twists and turns this season, as there were last season.
“We’ve got off to a good start but it’s about keeping that going and keeping the momentum. If we keep winning our games, that’s all that matters. But we won’t look at the table until it gets interesting.”
The left-back is yet to reach top form this year, like many of his teammates, which makes it even more exciting. If the Reds are winning every week while not necessarily being at their best, there is going to be so much more to come over the coming weeks and months.
Robertson could well get a rest this week with the Reds in Carabao Cup action at MK Dons on Wednesday night.
Academy graduate Adam Lewis would be the favourite to start at left-back in that one, though Yasser Larouci would be another option and James Milner could also play there if Jurgen Klopp was to go for an experienced selection.
