Andrew Robertson's relegation jibe after derby win


Andy Robertson has appeared to have reminded Everton they are in a relegation scrap after Liverpool's 2-0 derby win

Robertson opened scoring for Liverpool in the sides' 240th derby, converting a Mohamed Salah cross in the 62nd minute before Divock Origi late goal confirmed the victory for the Reds.

The result means Liverpool end the weekend as they started it, one point behind leaders Manchester City while Everton fall to 18th, two points behind Burnley in the Premier League drop zone.

Robertson, when interviewed by Sky Sports after the game was keen to spell out the Toffees' current position but in a cheeky way.

"I've been in a relegation battle before, so I know what it's like," the full-back said. 

"It was tough, we started playing their game and not our own game.

"We weren't at our best. We had to focus on ourselves and be patient and create chances. Everton are fighting for every point they can get. We didn't create anything first half.

"We had to be patient and fortunately we got the goals. My first at the Kop end, it was an amazing feeling, I'm really pleased with all our contributions today and now we've got a tough week ahead."
