Liverpool fullback Robertson hits back at critics after victory at Tottenham

Liverpool fullback Andrew Robertson hit out at critics after victory at Tottenham.

The Reds had failed to win any of their last five in the league and saw their long unbeaten home record ended by Burnley.

“That's more like us," Robertson told the Reds' official website.

“Obviously a lot has been said about us the last couple of weeks and some of it justified and some of it maybe not.

"But we know what industry we are in and that's what happens. Tonight, everything clicked. I thought we were brilliant all over the park.

“The midfield were excellent. You saw Gini [Wijnaldum] in the last minute of the game, incredible.

"Hendo [Jordan Henderson] stepping in at the back – that's what a captain does, stepping in at that really tough moment.

"Then Joel [Matip] goes off and he captains the whole team, as well as Nat [Phillips] at the back and helped him through.

“So, it was a really big performance from us. Luckily it all clicked and we were clinical in front of goal and we got a really good result against a really big team."
