Liverpool’s Andy Robertson feels that their draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford was not a bad result even though the league leaders were looking for the win.
The Reds returned to the top of the Premier League table, a point ahead of Manchester City, with their 0-0 draw against arch-rivals United on Sunday.
Speaking to Liverpoolfc.com, Robertson said:
“I thought we started really well and we had the momentum, we were driving forward, but we just didn’t create great chances.
“We had one or two but we could have had a lot more and then the second half was disappointing for both teams, with not really many chances created and a lot of sloppy passes.”
Liverpool’s left-back said the away team were the ones pushing for the win, right until the end.
“We kept going right until the end. In the last five to 10 minutes we were the side trying to win it and trying to get the three points – but a point at Old Trafford is never a bad result.
“It could have been more and we are not hiding away from that, but we got a point and go back top of the Premier League. We came for a win, of course we did, but we definitely didn’t want to get beat and we wanted to take something away, and we have managed that.”
Next up for Liverpool is Watford at home on Wednesday night when Jurgen Klopp’s men will be itching to get back to winning ways and maintain their lead at the top of the table.
