After winning the Premier League last year for the first time in over 30 years, nobody could have predicted Liverpool's 20/21 campaign. Injuries, out of form players, and no supporters have combined to see Liverpool sit in 7th place in the league table. 

Left back Andy Robertson has admitted that this season has been difficult. 

When speaking to the echo he said, "Trying to win a league with the expectations at Liverpool is incredibly difficult. This one has been tough, of course it has."

"Having people fall around you - every game we were going into, we were picking up injuries."

Andy Robertson has featured 39 times this season for Liverpool.

The flying Scotsman has played alongside 19 difference centre back pairings due to the season ending injuries of Joel Matip, Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk.

"Hopefully, touch wood, we have kind of stopped that now." 

"In the last six to eight games, we have not picked up many and we have started to get boys back."

Andy Robertson has made 39 total appearances for Jurgen Klopp's side this season, playing the full 90 minutes in all but four matches. The captain of Scotland has played an integral role for Liverpool and offers consistency in a season that there has been very little of that. 

"Being a mainstay of that team, keeping myself fit and being able to be relied on: I have enjoyed the responsibility. But I’ve not enjoyed the results on the park."

Due to international break, Liverpool do not have another match until 3 April when they travel to Emirates Stadium to face Arsenal.
