Ahead of Liverpool's clash against Manchester United, Andy Robertson has warned that form counts for nothing in the fixture.
United have had torrid results as they sit 12th on the log with only two points separating them from relegation places. Liverpool are in contrasting form having won all their games this season and sit at the summit of the log, eight points clear of their closest rivals Manchester City.
In an interview with the club's official portal, Robertson fired a warning at Liverpool, "I don’t think it matters what your form is like in these games. It doesn’t matter that we’ve won eight on the bounce and they’re struggling. It’s Man United v Liverpool. It will be a one-off game and we’ll see who comes out on top.
"I think what makes it so special is that it’s historic. There have been such great battles down the years. And they’ve always had top teams who have always fought against each other for everything on the pitch. It’s always like that. And it’s genuinely a different atmosphere when you play against them.
"It’s a historic stadium, nice, though I prefer Anfield… The atmosphere is good, too. There is always an edge to it. It’s a proper game and, sometimes, it gets played like a cup tie… I have no doubt that they’ll produce a reaction after a poor performance against Newcastle.
"I’m absolutely sure that they will be firing and wanting to kick-start their season. For them, there would be no better time to do it than against us. But we have our own objectives and our own aims. That’s what we’ve got to be striving for."
