Andy Robertson says Liverpool are still striving to ‘do better’ despite the club’s record-breaking start to the Premier League season.
Jurgen Klopp’s league leaders maintained their unbeaten record with a 1-0 victory at Tottenham on Saturday evening, Roberto Firmino scoring the only goal of the game to extend the Reds’ lead at the top of the division to a seemingly insurmountable 14 points.
The win was Liverpool‘s 20th from just 21 games so far, their relentless start the best of any side in the history of Europe’s top five leagues and putting the club on the verge of ending their 30 year title drought.
Despite the club’s continued excellence, Robertson insists that improvements can always be made and says perfectionist Klopp was keen to point out their errors at Spurs during the half-time interval, with the help of the club’s video analysts.
“You can be the best footballer on the park, but if you are standing up in the stand you see a lot more than you do on the pitch,” Robertson said, as per the Telegraph.
“It is only one or two clips now and again, just stuff we can do better in the second half.
“Our team sat up in the stand are very good at what they see and what they know, and it is beneficial for us.”
Robertson – who has one goal and six assists to his name in the league this season – also admitted that he maintains his own personal standards by abstaining from alcohol during the season, though joked that his heritage allows him to indulge during the summer.
“I don’t drink during the season,” Robertson admitted. “But don’t get me wrong, [in the] off-season, I have a couple of weeks – I’m Scottish, after all!”
Despite the victory at Spurs further extending Liverpool’s huge lead at the top, the Scotland international insists there will be no celebrations until the title is mathematically secured.
The Reds next face arch-rivals Manchester United at Anfield next weekend, the only side to have taken points from the leaders so far this season.
“We are not celebrating that we are champions,” he said. “We are just celebrating a nice win just now. Long may that continue, and then in May maybe we can start to celebrate.”
