Andy Robertson has urged his Liverpool teammates to bounce back and show why the club are champions ahead of their trip to face Arsenal in midweek.
Liverpool‘s flawless home record this season was ended with a 1-1 draw against Burnley last week, the hosts missing a succession of chances as the Clarets became the first side to take a point from Anfield this season.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are still within reach of the Premier League’s record points total, but must win each of their remaining three fixtures to do so, and Robertson has urged his side to bounce back against an Arsenal team who will be looking to respond from the disappointment of a north London derby defeat.
“Not getting a result in the derby is always tough, you always feel it a wee bit more and they will certainly feel that with Tottenham coming from behind and getting the win and taking over them in the table and stuff, so they will be looking to bounce back,” the Scotland international told Liverpoolfc.com.
“But obviously we’ll be looking to stamp our authority on the game. We want to go there and show why we are champions and put on a good performance and get the win that we want as well, and that we need.
“So, we are looking forward to a tough game. Obviously they are fighting for European football so they have a lot to play for, but the desire to win the game will be there for both teams and it’s about who comes out on top. Hopefully, it will be us.
“Hopefully our quality shines through and we can get the three points that we want and we need, and then we move on to the Chelsea game.
“The last three games that we’ve got are really tough ones and we look forward to the challenge of all three of them and hopefully we can get maximum points.”
