2020 perhaps ended on a frustrating note for Scotland captain Andy Robertson – but building on the Liverpool stronghold at the Premier League’s summit is a 2021 goal.

The Reds are currently defending their first top-flight crown in 30 years this season. Robertson and his teammates currently sit top but only on goal difference after a couple of disappointing results.

A draw at home to West Brom was followed up by a 0-0 affair with Newcastle United, Southampton to come at Anfield on Monday night. They will need a victory to ensure they remain top.

Robertson is happy with the fact Liverpool managed to keep the top spot over New Year, but is aware that their lead could be more than it is currently. But now a run of consecutive is on Robertson’s mind as he aims for a second Premier League title.

“Obviously we’re still top – of course we would have liked to be top by a couple more points than we have,” said the Scotland captain. “The last couple of games have been frustrating for different reasons but we’re entering the New Year top of the league and looking to kick on now.

“Hopefully we can put a run of wins together that can cement our place at the top. But we know it’s not going to be easy. I think this season has shown that from every team. We need to be at our best to win games of football this season.”
