Jurgen Klopp's side failed to close the gap on the top four and their four-game Premier League winning run came to an end.


Liverpool FC were "not good enough" in their 3-1 loss against Brentford on Monday night, says left-back Andrew Robertson.


The Scotland defender admitted that the Reds were below par at the Gtech Community Stadium and their inconsistency on the pitch makes it hard to climb up the Premier League table.

Klopp’s side started the match well and almost broke the deadlock when Darwin Nunez went past goalkeeper David Riya before hitting the ball with his left foot but defender Ben Mee cleared the ball on the by-line.



Then the hosts built momentum and grew into the game, causing Liverpool all sorts of problems, especially during set pieces, and eventually, it paid off for them, with Ibrahima Konate scoring an own goal and Yoane Wissa nodding in a second to establish a 2-0 lead at the break.



A few minutes into the second half, midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s halved the deficit with a glancing header but it wasn’t enough for a comeback and they went further behind late in the game when Bryan Mbeumo bullied defender Ibrahima Kanote off the ball to score a third.


The Merseyside club have now dropped 23 points this season - one more than in the entire 2021-22 campaign.



"With the fans sitting at home or on the bus back up to Liverpool, it's not good enough for them," defender Robertson said as BBC Sport quoted.


"We've spoken about consistency and things like that but we're not getting it.


"It feels like we're one step forward and one step back at the moment which makes it hard to climb the league table unfortunately."
