Defender Andy Robertson, criticised by some fans on social media, said Liverpool have made a "really poor" start to the current Premier League season after drawing their opening two games against Fulham and Crystal Palace, as well as losing at Old Trafford to Manchester United on Monday.

In an interview with Sky Sports after the game, Robertson spoke about the team's performance on Monday 22 August. According to the Reds defender, togetherness is vital for Liverpool after the defeat. The Reds went down 2-1 at Old Trafford, meaning their winless run at the start of the Premier League season is now three games.

Robertson's words

"Obviously, it's not been good. It's definitely not been the start to the season that we wanted, it's been really poor. We gifted every team an early goal, which is the basis of the game, you can't keep making things difficult for yourself. We conceded an early goal again, we started slowly again and that's what we have to change.

"The players reacted and then you end up finding yourself 1-0 down, we started the second half calmly again and you find yourself 2-0 down. Then we started to find our rhythm, we started to create chances, we scored a goal and we tried to make them a bit nervous, but we didn't succeed. To be fair, they had a good look at the game. So, as I said, two points from nine is not the start we wanted," he added.

That's three games already this season. Maybe Crystal Palace was a bit different, we started really well there and then they hit us with a silly blow, but Fulham started better than us, they definitely started better than us today. Even if you go back to the end of last season, Wolves, Real Madrid, Southampton, teams like that, that was at the end of last season and they had already got going. So it has to change," he said.
