Andy Robertson is hoping to ‘tick’ Arsenal off the list of games Liverpool need to win if they are to have any chance of catching Manchester City to reclaim the Premier League title.

Arsenal’s recent record against Liverpool makes for painful reading.

The two sides have played each other 236 times before Wednesday’s game, with Arsenal winning 81 and losing 93.

Arsenal, however, have only won five of the last 20 meetings, conceding 48 into the bargain.

It is not, I have to say, a game I look forward to.

Speaking about the match and what Arsenal can expect from Liverpool, Andy Robertson, Kieran Tierney’s Scotland teammate, says that they are simply looking to tick teams off their list of games they can control.

“We’ve not really got much time to think about it, to be honest,” Robertson told Liverpoolfc.com of the title race.

“There are games coming thick and fast, we are playing in every competition going, we are just trying to take every game as they come. It’s important that physically we stay prepared, but also mentally as well. I think we are really good at that.

“I think we are very good at getting mentally prepared for every single game as if it’s the most important, because it is, that’s the only one we can play today and forget about what’s coming next.

“It’s going to be an exciting run-in hopefully, we need to keep winning games, we are the chasing pack and we need to keep ticking off the games and hope obviously Manchester City drop points.

“But all we can do is control the games that we can win and if we do that let’s see where it ends up in May. It’s probably not got to the exciting point just yet. We’ve still got a lot of games to go and we just need to keep ticking them off one by one.”
