Liverpool’s defeat to Brentford ‘not good enough’- Robertson

Liverpool defender, Andrew Robertson says his club’s performance in defeat by London side, Brentford, is “not good enough”.

The disappointment of the Scottish-born Liverpool back-man came after a string of defensive mistakes caused his team to suffer their first defeat to Brentford since 1938.

The 3-1 lossat the Community Stadium meant the Reds missed the chance to close in on the Premier League’s top four.

In a desperate first half, Ibrahima Konate scored an own goal at a corner and, having escaped conceding two further goals at set-pieces because of offside decisions on video review, Liverpool fell two behind when a mistake from Harvey Elliott allowed Mathias Jensen to set up Yoane Wissa.

Manager, Jurgen Klopp made a triple substitution at half-time and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain reduced the deficit; but another error late on, this time from Konate, let Bryan Mbeumo in to seal the win.

The Reds, who would have gone within a point of fourth with a win, have now dropped 23 points this season – one more than in the entire campaign last season.

Brentford, meanwhile, are unbeaten in six games  their best run in the top flight for more than 80 years and climb to seventh position on the log.
