Andrew Robertson pulled no punches

Liverpool wing-back Andrew Robertson admitted that his side need to do better after allowing a two-goal lead to slip in the 2-2 Premier League draw at home to Brighton.

The Seagulls fought back superbly to earn a share of the spoils at Anfield, with the Merseysiders now priced at 10/1 to be crowned Premier League champions this season.

Jordan Henderson and Sadio Mane gave the hosts a 2-0 advantage within the opening 24 minutes, only for strikes from Enock Mwepu and Leandro Trossard to cancel out the Reds' lead.

Robertson realistic

The Scotland international told his club's official website: "When you're 2-0 up in a game, I think so many people have said it's the most dangerous scoreline in football, because the next goal is so crucial.

"When you don't get it, you then have an opposition that believe they can get back on level terms. That's unfortunately what happened.

"But we've got to be better than that. There's a lot of things we can look at - good stuff from the first half and maybe not-so-good stuff in the second half."

We've got to be better than that, there's a lot of things we can look at.

Meanwhile, midfielder Naby Keita is set to miss the Champions League clash with Atletico Madrid after being forced off against Brighton due to a hamstring problem.

Injury returns for Keita

The 26-year-old Guinea international was among the scorers when the Reds won 3-2 at Atleti two weeks ago, but is almost certain to miss the rematch on Wednesday and could be out for some time after that.

Reds head coach Jurgen Klopp added: "He will have a scan and then we will know.

"But if somebody feels the hamstring, it would be the first time that he is ready for the next game. So, I can’t see that."
