Robertson slams Liverpool team-mates after "same mistakes" during Newcastle draw

Andy Robertson said Liverpool had failed to learn their lessons with a last-ditch slip against Newcastle which could prove costly to their Champions League ambitions.

Mohamed Salah's early goal had the Reds heading for a victory which would have launched them back into the top four – albeit temporarily with Chelsea beating West Ham later in the day.

But Joe Willock earned a point for the Magpies as the on-loan Arsenal man equalised in the fifth minute of added time – with the 1-1 draw leaving Jurgen Klopp's side four points off fourth spot with five games left to play.

It wasn't as if Liverpool had been served notice of Newcastle's intent – with Callum Wilson believing he had scored only for VAR to disallow the strike before Willock levelled the score.

And Reds left-back Robertson slammed his team-mates for making "the same mistakes" after they also allowed Leeds back into the game during Monday's 1-1 draw at Elland Road.

“We don’t learn our lessons, we keep making the same mistakes," said Robertson after Saturday's Anfield clash. "Teams always have a chance against us, they always build in confidence.”

Robertson's manager Klopp admitted his side paid for failing to take their chances – and questioned whether they deserved to qualify for next season's Champions League.

He told BT Sport: "I don't think you can create many better chances than we did. We scored a wonderful goal but didn't finish the game off.

"They deserved the goal because they had scored before…we didn't even take the present. We were lucky with VAR today and gave another chance away, it makes no sense and it's really tough to take. Why it happened I don't know.

"It's a point but it feels like a defeat. Today I didn't see that we deserved to play in the Champions League next year.

"We have another five games and we will see what we can do. We learn, or we don't play Champions League."
