Robbo calls for LFC to keep up full-throttle approach against Bayern Munich

Despite spending much of the season sitting top of the league, the Reds have not really hit the heights of last season - performance wise - in many matches so far.

Last season, we were used to seeing the front 3 look unstoppable, scoring for fun and racking up nearly 100 goals between them in all competitions. While this season, it took all 3 a little longer to get going, and they've only really look like that dream trio on a few occasions.

Not that that's their fault, of course. We've seen a clear evolution in style since the start of the season, as Jurgen and his team looked to make the Reds more stingy at the back.

But against Bournemouth we saw a welcome return, at times, of the all-action style we became accustomed to last season.

And Andy Robertson has called upon on the team to keep that 'full-throttle' approach up against Bayern Munich next Tuesday, when the team returns to Champions League action.

Speaking to, Robbo said: "We need to be full-throttle for that game. They are such a good team and they have been the last six or seven years so we know what a tough task it will be.

"But we believe we can cause any teams problems and we have to be at our best."

The German side come into the tie sitting 2nd in the Bundesliga having lost just 1 of their last 7 games but are definitely not quite the side they have been in recent years. There is definitely a clear chance for the Reds to progress if they're at their best.

The left-back went on: "I think that's what all good teams do.

"We had a good run last season and especially in the Champions League I think it helped massively. Everyone knows how special nights here are in the Champions League. We feed off each other.

"Players feed off the fans and the fans feed off the players because it's up to us to get them to have something to shout about. But it also helps when they're getting behind us and it can maybe give you that extra percentage or whatever in the game.

"That's what home fans are for. Every club's got it and it's all about making the most of it."

Robbo reckons we have to be at our 'full-throttle' best against Bayern next Tuesday night
