Andy Robertson says his Liverpool are unfazed by losing top spot in the Premier League to Manchester City.
Pep Guardiola’s manne leapfrogged the Reds on Wednesday night with a 2-0 win at Everton and lead the table on goal difference, but having played a game more than the Scousers.
That game in hand is a 5 pm Anfield kickoff against Bournemouth on Saturday and the Scotland captain says the title challengers have to pick themselves up after two consecutive league draws.
Of City taking top spot, the left back says: “It doesn’t make a difference to us.
“We need to get back on track to winning games and playing better football.
“We can’t worry about them [City]. We’re having a wee blip and we need to just try and get over the line in a couple of games.
“We’ll dust ourselves down. There’s still a long way to go – the run-in will be exciting but it’s time to try and enjoy it.
“I wouldn’t say nerves are showing. Did anyone say that when City dropped points against Palace and Leicester? I don’t think they did. It’s no different for us.
“People talk about pressure because we’ve not been in this position, but it’s February.
“Everyone needs to relax and try and enjoy the run-in.
“Nerves aren’t showing in the changing room, it’s been two poor results and poor performances. It happens during a long season.”
Meanwhile, the Egyptian FA have confirmed they will not call up Mo Salah for their international friendlies next month in what will be a big boost to the Reds’ title push.
