Andrew Robertson has hailed Liverpool’s battling qualities and believes it will serve them well in the Premier League title race.
Huddersfield gave as good as they got against the Reds, who extended their unbeaten top-flight start to nine games courtesy of Mohamed Salah’s neat first-half finish to earn a 1-0 win.
It was a tough test for the Reds and Robertson says digging out results in games such as this one will be crucial as they look to challenge Manchester City and Chelsea for the top prize.
“Yes of course, there’s a bit of relief. It was a tough game against a very good side,” Robertson said. “It’s important you come to these places and you win the game.
“Luckily we managed to get our noses in front and we’ve seen it out from there. We can play a lot better, but they made it hard. It’s a very good three points for us.”
Huddersfield midfielder Jonathan Hogg crashed a 25-yard shot against a post eight minutes after Salah had finished off a slick Liverpool move by slotting home his first goal in five matches.
Alex Pritchard thought he had turned home a first-half equaliser only for his effort to be ruled out for offside, while Klopp agreed afterwards his side were fortunate not to have conceded a 42nd-minute penalty when the ball appeared to hit James Milner’s arm.
“We weren’t at our best, but like I said these are the games you have to win if you want to challenge and we’ll play a lot better,” he added.
