Liverpool not discussing quadruple chances – Robertson

Liverpool players are not discussing the possibility of an unprecedented quadruple because the Premier League title race is out of their hands, says Andy Robertson. 

Manchester City retained their one-point advantage over Liverpool at the summit after the teams drew 2-2 in an enthralling encounter at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday. 

The Reds will take on City again on Saturday with a place in the FA Cup final on the line at Wembley, where Jurgen Klopp’s side lifted the EFL Cup earlier this season. 

Liverpool could also meet Pep Guardiola’s side in the Champions League semi-finals if they overcome Benfica and Atletico Madrid in their respective quarter-finals, the second legs of which take place on Wednesday. 

Mohamed Salah said prior to the City game that Liverpool wanted to win all four trophies, but Robertson insists there is no such talk between the players. 

“We literally just talk about the next game. As it comes. You can’t look too far ahead, you think of the next game and that’s Benfica then we move on from there. Definitely no chat like that in our changing room,” said Robertson. 

He added: “We just need to keep winning games. We had to do it that year [2019] and we have to do it this year. We need to keep winning games. It’s out of our hands [the Premier League]. If they win all their games then it is their league but if they do drop points we need to be ready to pounce. 

“The only way of doing that is by winning games. If we do that then let’s see where we end up in May. The points tallies we’ve racked up in the last couple of years has been incredible but there can only be one winner, so we need to keep fighting and see what happens. 

“We are still fighting on all fronts, we still have a lot of games to play and if we win hopefully it ends with silverware.” 

None of City’s remaining Premier League games are against teams in the top five, while Liverpool still have tricky fixtures against Tottenham and Manchester United to navigate. 

“I think we have got a really tough run-in, all games are tough in the Premier League especially when you get to the end bit,” said Robertson. 

“But we have some really tough games and we need to try to win them, we need to be at our best, we need to be better than we were [against City] and if we do that then let’s see where we end up and hopefully we can win something.”
