Liverpool defender Andy Robertson has issued an apology to the club fans following their first loss of the season at the hands of Watford.
Jurgen Klopp men were stunned 3-0 by Watford at Vicarage Road on Saturday evening following goals from Ismaila Sarr and Troy Deeney and according to Robertson, it was a performance that had not been expected by their fans.
“It's a performance that has not been expected for a number of years by the fans and we can only apologise. It's up to us to bounce back.
“Up to this point it has still been a fantastic season but today we weren't at the races, we weren't the Liverpool that everyone has watched,” he said after the game.
Senegalese Sarr had given Watford a shock lead in the 54th minute before doubling the home side's lead just moments later much to the amazement of the Liverpool team.
While chasing the game, Liverpool’s fate was to be sealed in the 72nd minute when Troy Deeney popped up with a third goal.
The defeat ended Liverpool's remarkable 44-game unbeaten run in the Premier League, five short of the top-flight record shattered by Arsenal, who went undefeated during the 2003-04 campaign.
