Andy Robertson praises 'calm' Jurgen Klopp as Liverpool recapture type

"We've shown in the past that we're good enough and we'll continue to show this in the games we've got to come", he said.

Liverpool defender Andrew Robertson has laughed off suggestions manager Jurgen Klopp was feeling the strain after their title-race wobble. "That's what we have to do, the lads behind them - give them a solid base and give them plenty of the ball and let them go and express themselves".

"They were struggling against West Ham and brought on Divock Origi to try to win them the game".

"What will happen in Merseyside, as it did in Manchester all those years ago, is you will be walking down the street and people will be saying "I think we can do it, go on let's do it this year".

'We wanted to have a clean sheet and we wanted to get some goals back in and it could have been a lot more (than 3-0)'. He added, "It was exactly the football he is able to play and that we want him to play; very involved in things, not only scoring but in the build-up as well, sometimes dropping deep, in the half-spaces, staying wide, all that stuff".

"We are having one of those runs in the season where we have got little niggles, little injuries, illnesses and disruption to the team a couple of days before, it has been the last few games really", he said.

'If we have a bad result we use that to put in a positive performance the next game and that's what we've done.

Wijnaldum acknowledges the frustration felt by those draws with Leicester and West Ham but also urged some perspective, with the club still well in contention for their first title since 1990.

Klopp has often referenced the difference in supporters for a night game, especially in the Champions League, and those on a weekend afternoon.

The home side's second goal was an exquisite chip over Bournemouth Keeper Atur Boruc by influential Dutch global player Georginio Wynaldum, withy the move starting with Keita winning the ball off former Red player Jordan Ibe.

It means Liverpool fly to Marbella on Monday for warm weather training with their season firmly back on track.

"I don't think it's a message to any other team or anything", said Robertson.

"Well, in Liverpool they have two Dutch players of course, so for me Liverpool can win the title", he said on Sky Sports.

Man City's 6-0 win against Chelsea on Sunday saw them drop back down to second but Liverpool will hope to gain momentum by returning to winning ways.

"We've had inconsistencies and never quite found that way to produce results".
