Liverpool ace Thiago: How did Robbo get Man of the Match?

Liverpool ace Thiago Alcantara was happy to wind-up Andrew Robertson after victory at Arsenal last night.

The duo both shone as Jurgen Klopp's side closed the gap on Premier League leaders Manchester City to a point.

The pair both spoke to Sky Sports afterwards, when the interviewer said to Thiago: “It was an interesting few minutes for you wasn't it at the start of the second half.

“You almost gave them a goal. Alisson made a great save and then you created the opening goal yourself."

And that led to the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich star deciding to poke fun at himself and wind up Robertson in his response.

Thiago said: “Yeah, that's why I don't understand why Robbo got Man of the Match.

“I gave two assists and he gave just one, so… No just kidding!"
