Liverpool left-back and Scotland captain Andy Robertson has sent an emotional message following another bad night on the domestic scene.

The Reds lost 1-0 to Chelsea at Anfield, thanks to Mason Mount’s first half strike. It leaves Liverpool seventh in the Premier League table, four points off a Champions League spot and now holding a five-game run of defeats at home, the worst in their entire history.

Robertson was far from happy with himself and his teammates after the Chelsea defeat, saying it isn’t good enough from the reigning champions: “We can’t rely on the past. Last season is over with, it is done. We have nowhere near been good enough to what Liverpool team should be. We are dropping further and it is not good enough.

“These games are won and lost on fine margins and these goals can’t happen. For us to get beaten on the counter attack is not good enough. Five home games without a win, that is nowhere near good enough. Nothing is going to help the fans at home and it is simply not good enough because games are running out for what we want.

“Too many heads are going down when we go 1-0 down, we cant do that. Football is about taking knocks. 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.”
