Robertson calls for Newcastle focus
Liverpool defender Andy Robertson insists they will continue to fight as they look to end the season with two trophies.
The Reds suffered a 3-0 defeat against Barcelona at the Camp Nou on Wednesday in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final.
They face a mammoth task in trying to battle their way back into the tie next week but they can’t afford to dwell on that result.
Liverpool return to Premier League action on Saturday with a trip to Newcastle as they attempt to keep them title hopes alive.
Asked about the importance of bouncing back, Robertson told Liverpoolfc.
com: ‘We’ve got no other options.
‘We’ve got three, hopefully four, games left this season, and we need to give it everything, 100 per cent, in every single game because we know what’s at stake.
‘We know both of them are out of our hands now but look, it’s Liverpool – we fight for everything and we believe.
‘We need to go to Newcastle, get our legs ready first and foremost and they are in a great run of form, so we need to be at our best there and then we can worry about Barcelona.
But our focus is now on Newcastle.
‘ Liverpool have won their last two meetings with Newcastle to nil and punters using their free bet may want to back them to claim another shutout victory.
