‘Telling moment’: Shearer spotted something very exciting about Liverpool after Robertson goal

Alan Shearer has spoken in awe of the Reds’ tough mentality after how they found a way to win in the tricky road test against Aston Villa last Saturday.

Jurgen Klopp has deservedly been praised for how he has significantly improved the Liverpool team, ever since he took over from former Reds boss Brendan Rodgers four years ago.

The German tactician was the man who guided Liverpool towards Champions League success last season while he came within a point of ending the club’s multi-decade long wait for the English top flight title.

Liverpool are making another push for the Premier League crown this season and on last Saturday, the team came very close to seeing its long unbeaten record in the competition come to an end.

In fact, the Reds looked destined for defeat after Aston Villa – who took a shock lead in the first half – held the visitors at bay until the dying seconds of the game.

And after Andy Robertson’s spirited equalizer, Alan Shearer admits he noticed an exciting similarity between this Liverpool team and the successful Manchester United side from Sir Alex Ferguson’s reign.

“A telling moment came when Andy Robertson powered home his equalising header. There were no huge celebrations — instead Liverpool’s players simply grabbed the ball and raced back for the kick-off.” he wrote in The Sun

“Liverpool have become like Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United teams in the 90s. Since the start of last season, the Reds have scored 23 goals in the final ten minutes of matches — the highest of any Prem team. Liverpool just seem to find a way to make things happen.”
