Andy Robertson wants teammates to stop relying on their past.
The Premier League champions fell to another 1-0 defeat at Anfield last night, against top four contenders, Chelsea.
It marked Liverpool’s fifth home defeat in their 129-year history. Liverpool are seventh in the league now, four points adrift of the top four just a season after winning the title.
“Last season is over with, it is done,” Robertson told Sky Sports. “We have nowhere near been good enough to what Liverpool team should be. We are dropping further and it is not good enough.
“Games are running out and we need to put the pressure on the teams below us. People will think we are down and out and we need to get the results to show them we are not. At the moment we are not doing that. We can’t rely on the past.”
Overall, Liverpool failed to convert their chances and were far too vulnerable at the back. If it were not for Timo Werner’s poor form, Chelsea could have gone out with a bigger win.
Jurgen Klopp now has a massive job of realigning this side to winning ways. Missing out on Champions League football will be hugely damaging to the team.
