The Scottish left-back aided the Reds to a 3-1 victory at Spurs, and he wishes to utilize that outcome as a spark in their title protection.

tremor, yet he saw the Reds looking more like their old selves in a 3-1 win over Tottenham. 

Poor performances by Jurgen Klopp's men during the current season raised many questions and criticisms.

The title-holders appeared to be at risk of letting their crown slip, with problematic injury issues plotting against them. 

However, three goals from

and

Trent Alexander-Arnold

against Mourinho's Spur secured a sweet three points for Liverpool, which was a promising reminder of last season's hot run.

"That's more like us," Robertson told the Reds' official website

"Obviously a lot has been said about us the last couple of weeks and some of it justified and some of it maybe not. But we know what industry we are in and that's what happens. Tonight, everything clicked. I thought we were brilliant all over the park.

"The midfield were excellent. You saw Gini [Wijnaldum] in the last minute of the game, incredible. Hendo [Jordan Henderson] stepping in at the back – that's what a captain does, stepping in at that really tough moment. Then Joel [Matip] goes off and he captains the whole team, as well as Nat [Phillips] at the back and helped him through.

"So, it was a really big performance from us. Luckily it all clicked and we were clinical in front of goal and we got a really good result against a really big team."

Robertson trusts triumph over Spurs will go about as a springboard for Liverpool, with the Merseyside outfit anxious to place a strange dunk in aggregate norms behind them. 

"Of course you get games when it just doesn't click, and maybe you get four or five a season but it's spread across a season." the 26-year-old added. 

"Ours was unfortunately four or five at once and that's why probably a lot has been said about us. That's fine, we are footballers and we know what industry we are in and everything like that. 

"But we've stuck together on the training ground and everyone is together. Obviously the fans can't be in with us just now but it's important they stick with us.

"It's a unique season, really tight, and we've seen other teams putting runs together and shown where it takes us. And it's up to us to try to put one of them together. 

"But we can't just let this be a one-off, it needs to be the catalyst for a really strong second half of the season."
