Andy Robertson explains why Roberto Firmino is essential to everything Liverpool do

Andy Robertson explains why Roberto Firmino is essential to everything Liverpool do”

"With his work-rate, his technique, his goals and his all-round play, I don't think there's anyone like him", he told United Kingdom media.

"People will say there are better strikers but what he does is so important to our team".

"It means nothing because we've only got four wins this season", Robertson said.

Klopp played down the incident, saying the matter had been resolved in the dressing room and it is unlikely the German will allow such a situation to impact a side which has gone 21 Premier League matches unbeaten and looks well set to mount a bid for their first league title since 1990.

The Senegalese, who scored Liverpool's second goal in their comfortable 3-0 win at Burnley, seemed agitated with his teammate, who failed to pass the ball to him in a promising position in the second half.

"He presses the defenders and doesn't give them a minute".

And the importance of the Brazil striker to the Reds' cause was underlined by Robertson.

"We had the aim to win the games we needed to win, luckily we've done that".

Trent Alexander-Arnold's attempted cross from deep on the right hit the back of Wood and looped over Burnley keeper Nick Pope into the far corner.

"You know what you're going to get here, they've been doing it for a number of years and they're very good at it".

"Like I said, we want to push each other".

"[The clean sheet] was massive for us. We're all buzzing with that".

The Reds were forced to thrust the Spaniard into the starting XI after Alisson Becker pinged his achilles during the first game of the season, and the former West Ham man has responded well.

"Sadio is a naturally fit boy", Robertson added. "With his work-rate, his technique, his goals and his all-round play". He's a fantastic player and I love playing with him.

"I'm not sure [what set him off] to be honest".

"They [the front three] are world-class players, and the goal doesn't move".

Despite one mistake that cost Liverpool a goal, the reserve goalkeeper has largely performed well and ensured the side didn't feel the loss of Alisson as much as they thought they would.

"For me it's just about concentrating on what we need to do".
