Robertson can only apologise for Liverpool's defeat against Watford

Though looking compelled, Andy Robertson apologized for Liverpool's poor display as the team saw their unbeaten Premier League season run was ended by Watford.

In quite stunning a fashion, Jurgen Klopp's men were beaten 3-0 at Vicarage Road on Saturday by a Watford team who had no victory in their six previous games.

The defeat actually put an end to Liverpool's hopes of a record 19th consecutive win in Premier League and prevented them from breaking Arsenal's record of going an entire league season unbeaten.

Liverpool only had one shot on target against Watford, while Watford, fully deserved to win the game, could secure three points for them through the three goals scored by Ismaila Sarr and Troy Deeney.

Left-back Robertson accepted his side fell too far short of the exceptional standards they have set for most of the past two seasons.

"Watford were at it from the start and we took time to get going," he told Liverpool's website. "We had a couple of good moments but nowhere near enough for this Liverpool team.

"It's a performance that has not be.en expected for a number of years by the fans and we can only apologise for this performance.

"It's up to us to now bounce back because today wasn't good enough, simple as that. Watford deserved the three points; they were brilliant to a man. And we weren't.

"It's up to us to now show that this defeat hurts and up to us to now go and put a run together that will crown us champions."

Although defeated against Watford, Liverpool are still 22 points ahead of the second-place Manchester City, with one game played more than Man City. Anyway, they look quite certain to end the season as the league champions.

"Our message has always been the same: we can't get carried away," said Robertson.

"Of course, fans are going to get carried away and enjoy the moment we're in and that's nice for us because if our fans are enjoying the way we're playing and what we're doing, it means we're doing something right.

"We really need to put in a proper LFC performance and show everyone that this was just a blip, that now we're going to crack on and get to where we want to be. Everyone knows where that is – but it's up to us to now show it."
