Liverpool’s Roberston predicts title race to ‘go to the wire’ after Bournemouth win

Andrew Robertson is predicting a nail-biting climax to the Premier League season after Liverpool moved back to the top of the table with a comfortable 3-0 win over Bournemouth.

There have been questions about Liverpool’s mentality in recent days after they dropped four points in their last two outings, drawing 1-1 against both Leicester and West Ham.

Man City’s midweek win over Everton saw the champions reclaim top spot, albeit having played a game more, but the Reds showed no signs of nervousness against Bournemouth, with Sadio Mane, Georginio Wijnaldum and Mohamed Salah securing all three points for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Speaking after the game, Scotland international Andrew Robertson thinks the Premier League title race will go all the way to the wire.

“We knew a clean sheet was important – we haven’t had one for a few games,” Robertson told BBC Sport.

“Getting the first goal was important but we have done that in the previous two games and not won.

“We can’t rest on a 2-0 lead. Getting the third just killed the game. It was all about staying professional.

“If there were any point to prove then it was in our dressing room. We were good all over the pitch.

“We have to stay relaxed. There are still 12 games to go. We shouldn’t be thinking about it [the title]. It will go down to the wire.”
