Reds left-back Andy Robertson has apologised to the Anfield faithful in regards to the performance that Liverpool put in against Watford on the weekend.

Watford defeated Liverpool 3-0 at Vicarage Road thanks to goals from Ismaila Sarr and Troy Deeney.

The loss was Liverpool’s first of the 2019-20 Premier League season, which means the talk of the Reds remaining unbeaten until May is now finished.

Despite the defeat, Liverpool still possess a 22-point lead at the top of the Premier League table.

However, despite the loss being the Reds’ first of the Premier League season, Robertson issued an apology to the Liverpool fans.

“It’s a performance that has not been expected for a number of years by the fans and we can only apologise. It’s up to us to bounce back,” Robertson said, as quoted by the Daily Mail.

“Up to this point it has still been a fantastic season but today we weren’t at the races, we weren’t the Liverpool that everyone has watched.”

This is really good to hear from Robertson. Many Liverpool fans have been quite understanding that a result like this was not far away.

You can’t win every match you play in. Liverpool have been flawless for the majority of this season, but hopefully this loss to Watford gets the Reds going again. There is no denying that Jurgen Klopp’s side have dropped off recently.
