Robertson has echoed the words of his manager by highlighting the work ethic of Marcelo Bielsa's men.
"You know they're going to run to the end, they're a bit similar to us in that, but the distance they cover is frightening," said the Liverpool left-back.
"They play a very unique style which a lot of teams have struggled to adapt with.
"I think we struggled as well in the first game of the season, obviously finishing 4-3, it feels so long ago.
"I think they were kind of an unknown entity in the league then but now they've stamped their mark and stamped their authority on this league this season and that's why they're in the position they're in."
