Robertson: Liverpool taking the title charge one game at a time

Cape Town - Andy Robertson insists Liverpool will continue taking it game by game and won't think about the Premier League trophy until it has been secured.

A 2-0 victory over arch-rivals Manchester United extended their lead at the top of the table to 16 points with a match in hand.

They require just 10 more victories - having already registered a remarkable 21 in 22 fixtures - to guarantee a first league crown in 30 years and most observers are saying there is no way they can be caught now.

That is not the attitude in the dressing room, however, even if fans are now confident enough to sing 'We're going to win the league', which got its first outing against United.

"We would obviously love to say yes - but no," said Robertson.

"You are playing against your rivals who you've had great battles with over the years and the fans probably want to rub it in a bit but we're not getting carried away.

"Until the champions sign is above our heads, we don't believe anything. Yes, the lead is 16 points, but we know how tough it gets.

"We've beaten United and in three days' time we go away to Wolves, who are flying, and it's an incredibly tough game.

"We know how hard this league is and how the table can change in a couple of weeks so it's up to us to stay 100 per cent focused and not allow that to happen.

"If we do then we keep ticking off the games and we hopefully get closer and closer.

"We will let other people say that (they will not drop enough points to lose the title) but I don't think anyone in that dressing room is believing that just yet and I think you can see that with every performance we are putting in.

"We can believe once the final whistle of that game goes."
