“A really tough game” – Andy Robertson singles out 2 Arsenal stars who really gave them a though time despite Liverpool win

Liverpool left-back Andrew Robertson has lauded Arsenal’s Gabriel Martinelli and Bukayo Saka for their performances on Wednesday night.

The Reds made the trip to the Emirates Stadium for their Premier League matchday 29 clash, hoping to keep the pressure on league leaders Manchester City. The visitors endured a quiet first half but grew in stature in the second 45, ultimately walking away with a 0-2 win.

Diogo Jota scored the opener for Liverpool in the 54th minute before Roberto Firmino landed the killer blow eight minutes later.

Robertson, who was one of the standout performers for the Merseysiders, claimed it was tough bagging all three points at the Emirates. He reserved special praise for Arsenal wingers Martinelli and Saka, who threatened the Reds’ clean sheet multiple times.Speaking to Sky Sports (via Twitter) after the match, Robertson said:

“Gabriel Martinelli and Bukayo Saka are really hard work. I think Trent Alexander-Arnold was outstanding. It was a really tough game. It was great to have a clean sheet.”

Following the win over the north Londoners, Liverpool have now extended their Premier League winning run to nine games. They currently sit only a point adrift of Manchester City. The Reds will win the league if they avoid dropping points in their remaining nine fixtures.
