Andrew Robertson urges Liverpool to build on victory over Tottenham

Andrew Robertson tackles Lucas Moura

“When you play against a big team, obviously top of the league – they were first going into this game – scoring a last-minute winner is big. All the lads felt it,” the Scotland international told liverpoolfc.com.

“But it’s only big if you use it in the right way and you try to kick on from it. We’re top of the league but there’s still a long way to go.

“But it’s a big win against a really, really good team. We created good chances, we dominated the ball first half; the second half was a bit more even.

“We’ve beaten a good team and it’s always nice when you do that but they’ll be there, they’ll come back again and we need to be at our best every game to stay top now because there’s a lot of teams trying to catch us.

“It’s a lot closer race this year and it will go the whole way.

“We just need to keep doing what we’re doing, focus on us and keep picking up three points as much as we can.”

Roberto Firmino celebrates scoring the winner

Firmino’s goal was only his seventh in 2020 and Liverpool’s fifth of the season in the final five minutes of a match, three of which have been the decisive goal of the game.

Having the belief to score late winners was a trait of last season and Robertson hopes it is a trend which will continue.

“I’m so happy for Bobby scoring the goal, you see how much it meant to him,” added the left-back.

“We’ve not scored many late goals this season, it has been a trademark of ours last season and the season before, but it’s so good to score last-minute winners, especially against a really good team like Tottenham.”
