“An incredible run of form” – Andy Robertson praises Liverpool star whose all-round performance has been ‘magnificent’
Ace Liverpool’s left-back Andrew Robertson Robertson has showered praises on his fellow teammate Fabinho following the Reds’ 1-0 win against Burnley at Turf Moor.
The Brazilian international Fabinho scored the all-important goal and the winner for the reds in the 40th minute as they managed to secure all three points at Burnley.
While talking to the Liverpool FC official website after the final whistle, Robertson said:
“It was a horrible day, really tough and Burnley made it difficult for us. I thought they played a really good game but I think we stood up to every challenge they had.”
Burnley created quite a number of chances but failed to capitalize on them. The Lancashire-based club still finds themselves at rock bottom of the table.
The Scottish international said:”Our two center-halves won a lot of headers. Fabinho won a lot of headers, me and Trent covering them, and [the] midfield winning balls and trying to win it back.
“And then it was just about trying to find that one bit of quality. Luckily, we got it and we could have maybe had a couple more but 1-0, we’ll take it. We’ll take the three points and now we have to move on.”
It was a scrappy win for the Merseyside giants against a determined Burnley side in a difficult game, with strong winds causing further issues to the Reds backline.
Robertson had nothing but praise for Fabinho who scored the vital goal for his side to keep the pressure going on league leaders Manchester City.
Fabinho has now scored five goals in his last seven appearances across all competitions.
Next for Liverpool is a trip to San Siro as they take on Serie A champions Inter Milan in the first leg of the Round of 16-tie in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday night.
