Liverpool's Robertson issues rallying cry ahead of Man City clash

Left-back Andy Robertson issues warning for Man City visit this weekend.

Liverpool triumphed against Rangers in the Champions League on Wednesday but have not found their form in the Premier League, having pushed City to the wire in the 2021-22 campaign.

Scotland international Andy Robertson has issued a rallying cry to his Liverpool teammates, asking them to muster their best form when they host Premier League champions Manchester City on Sunday.

The Reds, who currently sit in the 10th spot after winning only two out of their last eight league games this season, welcome Pep Guardiola's inform Cityzens at Anfield this weekend, and Robertson, who returned from injury in Liverpool's 7-1 demolition of Rangers during midweek says they must step up to the contest, regardless of their form in the English top flight.

'We have to play with that intensity.'

"It's a massive game, of course it is,” said Robertson as BBC Sport quoted. “We need to try and get consistency back into our game, into our performances. That's what we have been lacking this season.

"It always has to start somewhere. The result was obviously a very good one but the performance was excellent.

"We have to keep that going, we have to play with that intensity. If we do that then we will pick up a lot better results.

"Obviously a game against City will always be difficult, they are flying this season, playing really well, difficult to play against. But we at our best can always compete.

"We have to be like that. If we are anything below that it will be a difficult afternoon but if we are at our best then we know we can cause problems to any team. That's what we have to aim for."
