Robertson Rallies Around Alisson
Liverpool left-back Andrew Robertson says he and his teammates rallied around goalkeeper Alisson after the Brazilian’s error in the 3-1 win over Manchester United on Sunday. Alisson’s mistake allowed Jesse Lingard to steal an equaliser for United, before a pair of goals from Xherdan Shaqiri sealed a famous win for Liverpool at Anfield.
Robertson revealed that he and his teammates have no cause for complaint after Alisson’s excellent start to life at the club.
“He has been unbelievable this season and we all make mistakes,” said Robertson. “If Mo Salah or (Roberto) Firmino make a mistake it maybe doesn’t get punished because it is up the other end but that is unfortunately what a keeper has to put up with, if they make a mistake it usually turns into a goal.
“Of course, he will be disappointed with it but he bounced back and we can’t moan about it, he has dug us out Tuesday night and we are still in the Champions League because of him. “We have not dug him out of a hole but we have put in a performance and his error hasn’t been highlighted because we have won the game and that is what a good squad does.”
