Late PSG win was no marker, says influential Liverpool defender

Andrew Robertson has refused to claim that Liverpool laid down a marker with their 3-2 home win over PSG in the Champions League last night.

A late goal from sub Roberto Firmino handed the Reds a victory after they had surrendered a two-goal lead at Anfield.

Left-back Robertson was impressive in keeping Kylian Mbappe in check for much of the game and he believes Liverpool have the capabilities to challenge in both the Premier League and Champions League.

“We will look forward to playing in all competitions and hopefully we can compete on all fronts and we will see where it takes us,” he said.

“I don’t think this is a marker, it is just a start to the campaign. We just need to keep the momentum going.”

Firmino’s rare absence from the team gave Daniel Sturridge the chance for his first Champions League start for the club more than five years after joining them and he repaid Klopp’s faith with the opening goal from his first chance.

Defender Joe Gomez, who has started every match alongside Virgil van Dijk at the centre of defence this season, believes the depth of their squad makes them more of a proposition than the previous campaign, when they finished in the top four and reached the Champions League final.

“I think this year we’re confident as a team. The squad is so strong as a unit,” he said.

“With Bobby obviously struggling, Studge (Sturridge) comes in and scores for us. It shows we have so much quality.

“Obviously it’s big for us to compete against teams like that, but we see ourselves at that level. We have to.

“We’ve got a tough few games coming up: Chelsea, who have a 100 per cent record, and Southampton at the weekend. No game is easy. We have to keep going.”
