Robertson: Liverpool will throw everything at Man City

Liverpool belong at the summit of European football despite a poor season.

That is according to left-back Andy Robertson, who hopes that his side can show their best selves at the weekend.

Fresh off the international break, Liverpool take on Manchester City in the Premier League.

With City vying for the title and the Reds hoping to keep up with the top four teams, Robertson knows it will be a tough game.

“Going into April, not being in the Champions League, FA Cup or League Cup, and then not being in a title race is so disappointing - it's a position we don't want to be in," he explained.

“We are out of every competition, but we still believe we are a team that can compete in every competition.

“So to fix that, we have to be in these tournaments again next season, and the only way to do that is finishing in the top four.

“So we've got 12 games to fix it, and we are determined to put our all into those next 12 games."

“The motivations are the exact same. We want Champions League football, and so the motivation is the exact same as though we were going for trophies," he added.

"It is obviously a big week, we are playing against three big teams and yeah it is going to be an intense week but it's what you look forward to when you come to this club. These are the big games you want to be involved in.

“We don't want to be in this position, and it's no denying it's a big week ahead, but we don't really have time to waste, we don't have any mistakes left in us if we want to achieve top four."
