Andy Robertson hails Mo Salah's finishing and says Liverpool must be clinical

Liverpool displayed world-class finishing against Everton and Andy Robertson says the Reds must be clinical to stand a chance of winning the Premier League.

The league title race is fiercely competitive this season with just two points separating Chelsea in first place, Manchester City in second and Liverpool in third.

Each team has played each other once already and, if the top three remains as tight as it is now until mid-January (by which point each team will have played each other twice), the title race will go down to the wire.

Each of the four goals that Liverpool scored were of the highest order. While you expect that from Mohamed Salah and Diogo Jota, it was another surprisingly daggerlike finish from captain Jordan Henderson.

He received the ball from a Robertson cutback and, from just inside the box, he whipped it into Jordan Pickford’s bottom right corner with pace and curve.

However, it was Salah’s second goal that Robertson was blown away by, as the Egyptian ran half the length of the pitch after a Seamus Coleman mistake.

Robertson said: “I don’t know what it felt like to you but it felt to me as if Mo had all the time in the world – and that’s a sign of what kind of form he’s in just now. I always believed he was going to score it and luckily he did that.

“It’s really hard. Coleman is breathing down his neck, Pickford is closing the angle. I know how hard it is to defend against him, I have to defend against him in training most days.

“He’s an unbelievable player.”
