Robbo praises Liverpool fan's support against Bournemouth

If there had been any nerves that last couple of the times the Reds played, then yesterday felt more like a homecoming with all of the 50-odd thousand Liverpool fans packed into Anfield there to welcome home their heroes.

Many outside of Anfield felt it was going to be another nervy display, and that the team had already 'bottled' it but Klopp's charges are made of much sterner stuff as they showed against Bournemouth.

And let's not forget, this 'wobble' we had involved 1 Premier League defeat to Man City, being knocked out of the FA Cup away to a strong Wolves team and 2 draws against Leicester and West Ham.

We were also below-par against Brighton and Crystal Palace but came through with 3 points, meaning we dropped 7 Premier League points over the course of January and the start of February. We're still top. By three points, don't forget.

But the Anfield crowd will be crucial to the run-in and Andy Robertson reckons the fans were a huge help yesterday. Speaking (via the Liverpool Echo), the left-back said: "I thought the fans were brilliant, got behind us and created a positive atmosphere for us.

"It makes a huge difference. Some people go to the game and maybe don't understand how important they are at affecting it but they are.

"Even when we came out for the warm-up, it was a good reception and you could tell the fans were up for it. We were up for it already.

"We couldn't wait to get out to get the warm up done and get started. That's the way it was.

"I think everyone was really positive and hopefully that continues from now until the end of the season.

"It's up to us to create that atmosphere. We need to win the tackles, create chances, win our headers and score goals. That's the only way you get fans off their seats. We managed to do it and the fans reacted well. We fought for everything and got the result that we needed."
