Scotland captain Andy Robertson is aiming to help Liverpool out their poor run of form.
The reigning Premier League champions look likely to lose their crown after a third league defeat on the spin away to Leicester City, Liverpool losing 3-1. Robertson returns to Scotland action next month for World Cup qualifiers.
In the meantime, Robertson wants Liverpool to get out their current slump: “Yeah, it’s a huge blow, you can say that. I thought for large parts of the game, we were really good, dominant when you come here against a really good Leicester team.
“Not many teams do that and then the thing we’re struggling with is that’s not us out there. One setback and we’ve been so good at bouncing back, we stay in the game, but with that setback, we just opened up and played right into Leicester’s hands with Barnes and Vardy, the pace and the counter-attack.
“We just opened completely up and when that happens against a really good Leicester team, you’re going to get punished. Look, confidence, I think for large parts of the game we played with a lot of confidence.
“We kept the ball really well, we started really well, created a couple of chances, a few good corners in the first 10 minutes, started the way we wanted, then I don’t know what happened in the last 15. That can’t happen in a big game like this, it simply can’t and it did unfortunately for us, so we really need to look at that.
“We have some really big games coming up, every game is massive for us now and when you open up like that, most teams will punish you and we really need to put an end to it.”
