Roberto Firmino will end his Anfield drought, according to his teammate Andy Robertson.
“It’s tough, that’s VAR for you,” said Robertson of Firmino’s disallowed strike. “You celebrate the goal and Bobby’s thinking ‘I’m back at Anfield and have scored again’.
“It was a fantastic strike, and then of course it gets ruled out. That’s the way football is going. Bobby’s goal at Anfield will come sooner rather than later.”
Robertson is also full of praise for VVD.
“I’ve got the pleasure of playing next to him,” he said. “He’s a fantastic role model and a fantastic player.
“If there are any young up-and-coming centre-halves, I’d suggest watching Virgil van Dijk. He makes it look easy but that’s down to all the hard work he’s put in. He tries to improve every single day.”
Like his boss, Robertson is not thinking of anything but winning the title and until then he will take nothing for granted.
“Until the champions sign is above our head then we don’t believe anything,” he said. “Yes it’s a comfortable lead but we know how tough this league is.
“We beat Manchester United and in four days’ time we go away to Wolves, who are flying. That is an incredibly tough game.
