Andy Robertson thinks Liverpool head into the international break on the back of crucial week as they remain in the hunt for a Premier League and Champions League double.
Facing relegation-threatened clubs Fulham and Burnley over the past two weekends, the Reds could easily have fallen behind in the title race.
Instead, Jurgen Klopp’s men hold a two-point lead over Manchester City – who have a game in the reservoir – following a 2-1 victory over the Cottagers at the weekend and a 4-2 win at home to the Clarets a week before.
Sandwiched in between was a remarkable 3-1 last-16 second-leg win at Allianz Arena in the Champions League against Bayern Munich that has set up a quarter-final clash with Portuguese giants.
“It gets to this point in the season where people are fighting for their lives from relegation, and that’s so tough,” Andrew Robertson told Liverpool’s official website.
“It’s very rare that teams aren’t playing for anything at this time of the season, so people start fighting and giving it their all. Luckily, we had enough in the tank.
“(It was) A massive week for us. Beating Burnley at home was difficult, as they are in a similar position to Fulham, and we fell behind there.”
The defeat for the Craven Cottage side was their third in succession since Scott Parker took charge of Fulham, leaving the club 13 points adrift of safety and staring at near relegation back to the second tier a year after they were promoted via the playoffs.
