Andy Robertson predicts Liverpool FC v Tottenham final
Andy Robertson looks ahead to Liverpool FC's clash with Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League final
Andy Robertson has warned his Liverpool FC team-mates that they are set for a tough test when they come up against Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League final on Saturday night.
The Reds are preparing to take on the Lilywhites in Madrid this weekend as they look to go one step further than they did last season and win the competition.
Liverpool FC ended up losing 3-1 to Real Madrid in last year’s final to leave them still searching for a trophy under Jurgen Klopp.
The Merseyside outfit have earned plenty of praise for their fine attacking displays this season and they came from three goals down to beat FC Barcelona in the semi-finals.
Tottenham, however, have been in impressive form themselves, and they reached the final thanks to a brilliant comeback against Ajax in the last four.
And Reds defender Robertson has warned his team-mates that they are going to have their work cut out against Mauricio Pochettino’s men in Madrid.
Speaking in an interview with Liverpool FC’s website, Robertson said: “The fans that are going over will have watched Tottenham for the last couple of years under [Mauricio] Pochettino and we all know Tottenham always play well against us.
“They always seem to give us a good game and last season they got the upper hand on us. This season we turned that around a wee bit. But I think the game at Anfield proves that we were quite lucky, they had a few big chances – but we were going for the title, so we had to win it and luckily we got a bit of luck right at the end.
“But Tottenham are a fantastic team with an unbelievable manager and they have quality the whole way through their squad. They finished fourth in the end, so they’re not far behind us.
“Every game we’ve played has been competitive and we expect that – and I’m sure so will they.
“Hopefully it’ll be a good game, but one that we come out on top.”
Liverpool FC ended up in second place in the Premier League table this season and just a point behind defending champions Manchester City.
