Liverpool vs Burnley: Reds must win after ‘processing’ Arsenal defeat, says Robertson

Liverpool defender Andy Robertson says the Premier League leaders need to “process” their defeat at Arsenal and “show everyone it was a one-off” by beating Burnley on Saturday.

The Reds suffered their first top-flight defeat since September 30 at Emirates Stadium on Sunday, hampered by a calamitous second-half mix-up between goalkeeper Alisson and defender Virgil van Dijk which allowed the Gunners to restore their lead on their way to a 3-1 win.

“You have to process it and you have to see what we did wrong,” said Robertson, who was brought on as a substitute as he continues his recovery from a shoulder injury which required an operation.

“Unfortunately, there was quite a bit that we didn’t do the way people have probably been used to watching [from us] this season.

“We weren’t that team that everyone has become used to watching again. Mistakes happen; two of our probably best performers this season get into a mix-up – but my God, we’d be in such a different position if it wasn’t for those two guys this season.”

Liverpool vs Burnley: Confidence must not ‘drop’

Reigning champions Manchester City are two points behind Liverpool with a game in hand and will have the chance to leapfrog Jurgen Klopp’s side when they host Everton in the first Premier League match of the weekend earlier on Saturday.

Second-bottom Burnley, who lost 2-0 at home to Liverpool on Boxing Day, have won one of their last 10 matches in all competitions and are seven points shy of fourth-bottom Luton.

“It’s important that we get back on track straight away,” said Robertson. “We have to try to do that.

“We’ve [had] a full week to train and then we have to go in to the Burnley game not letting our confidence drop or anything.

“We’ve got to show everyone it was a one-off. We’ve got to get back to winning ways and, if we do that, then hopefully we go on another run and kick on for the rest of the season.”

Robertson has made three substitute appearances since returning to Liverpool’s first-team squad last month.

The 29-year-old was injured while playing for Scotland in Octland in October.
