Andrew Robertson had an amusing reaction to collecting Roberto Firmino's MOTM award


Genuine question: was there a Liverpool player that didn't shine against Arsenal?

Anybody who watched their remarkable 5-1 victory knows the answer is probably 'no' and Jurgen Klopp could applaud every member of his squad as they left the pitch victorious.

The Reds have pulled away from Manchester City in recent weeks but the challenge of Arsenal - with whom they drew 1-1 in November - represented a major obstacle in their title run.

But despite the hitch of Ainsley Maitland-Niles firing Arsenal into a surprising lead, Liverpool barely put a foot wrong as they extended their Premier League advantage to nine points.

Roberto Firmino will make the headlines for his superb hat-trick, while Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah also wrote their names on the scoresheet.

Liverpool impress in Arsenal win

Goal-scorers aside, though, the Liverpool defence was once again in top form and the Arsenal attack simply weren't given an opportunity to come back into the game.

The fact Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang only made 13 touches throughout the match, six of which came from kick-offs, demonstrates how dominant the Liverpool defence was.

And that includes Andrew Robertson, who has been enjoying a fantastic second season at Anfield and delivered another superb performance during the Arsenal win.


Robertson's reaction to MOTM award

Alongside Virgil van Dijk, he was called into a post-match interview with BT Sport and was asked to deliver the Man of the Match award to Firmino.

Robertson's reaction was certainly amusing and for that reason, the interview has started to spread across Twitter.

That's because the left-back quipped in response: "Not a problem... as always!" in reference to the fact he's always collecting the award for one of his teammates.

Naturally, both Van Dijk and presenter Paul Dempsey started laughing at the comment and the full video can be seen down below:

Poor Robertson.

There's no denying that the 24-year-old doesn't get the credit he deserves, but he can't complain about the MOTM evading him on this particular occasion.

Steve McManaman didn't even hesitate when asked to name the recipient on co-commentary, rewarding Firmino for his first hat-trick in English football.

That being said, there was certainly a fair share of Liverpool fans who thought players like Georginio Wijnaldum, Dejan Lovren and Xherdan Shaqiri were also worthy of the accolade. 

Liverpool FC v Arsenal FC - Premier League

Sometimes, though, it boils down to the fact that goals win games and the weekend arguably marked Firmino's finest ever performance in a Liverpool shirt.

However, as far as Robertson is concerned, the MOTM awards should start to roll in if he maintains the kind of form that makes him a constant in Klopp's starting XI.

Sadly for the Scotsman, it seems his displays are destined to avoid the credit they deserve.
