Scotland captain Andy Robertson has rejected the notion his Liverpool side have already secured Premier League glory.
The Scotsman is standing on the cusp of greatness at Anfield. After a Champions League win last term, they are within touching distance of EPL silverware. They’ve won 20 of their 21 league games this term.
It’s far from over though according to the Scots captain. He says you only need to look to Manchester City’s incredible end of season run last term to show how good competition is.
He told the Daily Record (page 44, 13/01/20): “This league is so hard. Maybe we’ve made it look easy but, believe me, it’s not.
“The longer the run goes on, the more everyone wants to beat you. We don’t take anything for granted.
“We are not celebrating in the dressing room that we are champions. We won’t say that because look at the run at both us and Man City went on last season. What’s to stop Man City doing that again? Being unbeaten in every single game.”
No time to slow down
City won 17 of their last 18 games last season, an incredible run which delivered EPL success. They have faltered this season though and Robertson must surely smell blood.
His side are 14 points ahead with a game to spare. The chances of them losing five or six games in the league before May are extremely slim based on current form. It’ll take a monumental collapse for them to relinquish their league lead.
It would cap off a pretty spectacular year for Scotland’s captain. A Champions League win was brilliant and he’s fully cemented himself as arguably the world’s best left-back. A Euro 2020 berth under Steve Clarke would really put a shine on things.
He’s not wanting to get ahead of himself in celebrations until it’s secured.
