Liverpool defender issues rallying cry ahead of Reds' trip to Arsenal
Liverpool’s Andy Robertson has called for The Reds to “stamp our authority on the game” when Jürgen Klopp’s men visit Arsenal in the Premier League on Wednesday night.
Robertson scored the opening goal with a bullet header in the first half against Burnley on Saturday. Unfortunately, Jay Rodriguez scored a great equaliser for the visitors in the second half and the game finished 1-1.
Liverpool must now win all three remaining games to finish on 102 points – breaking Manchester City’s 100-point Premier League record from 2017/18. Two wins and a draw will see Liverpool equal the record as they are currently on 93 points.
On Wednesday night, Klopp’s Redmen travel to play Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in north London. Speaking to Liverpoolfc.com, Robertson acknowledged that The Gunners will be looking to respond with a positive result after Sunday’s derby defeat at Spurs.
“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.
“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.”
Robertson also spoke about Liverpool’s last three games (Arsenal (A), Chelsea (H), Newcastle (A)) and their desire to keep their momentum going.
“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.
“It’s all about us trying to carry the momentum into next season now.
“I think everyone knows we don’t have a long break between the two seasons so it’s important to try to keep that winning mentality going and taking that into next season.”
With the season due to finish on July 26th, it looks like the 2020/21 Premier League campaign is likely to get going again just over a month later. The two provisional dates that have been mentioned are August 29th or September 12th.
Let’s take care of 2019/20 first and, hopefully, see this fantastic Liverpool team break another Premier League record.
