Reds' belief key for title hopes - Robertson

1st April 2019, 14:09 by Neil Foster

Andy Robertson feels belief in the Liverpool squad will be vital to their hopes of winning the Premier League title.

The Reds moved back to the top of the standings with a 2-1 victory over Tottenham at Anfield on Sunday, with Toby Alderweireld's last-gasp own-goal handing the hosts all three points.

It continued a trend for Jurgen Klopp's side of securing late winners to stay in the race for the top-flight crown.

The Merseysiders were not at their best in the second period and were fortunate to take all three points, but Robertson believes the fact there is so much determination among the players means they will always be in with a chance.

"I think it comes from the whole squad having the right attitude and belief that we are good enough to win any game," he said. "We know we've got the energy, we know we've got the heart to go right until the end in every single game."

Liverpool are now two points clear of Manchester City, having played a game more, and Robertson knows that at this juncture of the campaign, it is all about substance over style.

"Looking at the league table, that's all that matters," he added. "Performances don't really matter at this point of the season, as long as we win."

Punters looking to use a free bet might fancy Liverpool to win the Premier League title and they are next in action against Southampton at St Mary's on Friday evening.
