Jurgen Klopp believes it is time to stop talking about Steven Gerrard’s costly slip against Chelsea in 2014 after Andy Robertson survived a similar mishap as Liverpool beat the Blues on Sunday.
The hosts were leading 2-0 at Anfield thanks to goals from Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah when Scotland defender Roberston lost his footing inside his own half during Sunday’s game.
Maurizio Sarri’s side could not take advantage, however, and the Reds hung o to the lead to return to the top of the Premier League table.
Afterwards, Klopp told a press conference: “By the way, on this point, we can finally close the slipping book. Robbo slipped and nothing happened, so it’s not a Liverpool thing. Done.”
Liverpool had briefly dropped into second place following Manchester City’s 3-1 win against Crystal Palace earlier on Sunday, but stormed back to the summit with a victory sealed by a goal of the season contender from Salah.
