Andrew Robertson acclaimed Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino’s double act as the catalyst driving Liverpool towards another top-four finish and Champions League progress.
But the Scotland full-back warned it will take more than Salah and Firmino’s partnership to sustain the Kop’s dreams.
Liverpool’s 2-0 win at Southampton lifted Jurgen Klopp’s side to within two points of second-placed Manchester United and gave them a perfect boost ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League trip to Porto.
Salah and Firmino contributed a goal and reciprocal assists at St Mary’s, and Robertson said: “Now it’s about the Champions League and progressing in Europe, but we also want to cement our place in the top four because we want to be in the Champions League every year.
“We’ve got two big aims between now and the end of the season, and that will drive us forward.
“Of course, people say it’s the front players who will make the difference, but I think everyone can make a difference.
“Mo has come in and got 22 goals, Bobby’s got his 20 th against Southampton, and they are the ones who are putting us in front. Then big Loris made some important saves and that kept us going – from game to game it will always change.
“We’re sitting in the top four now, and we’re in a good position, but there’s still a long way to go. We’ve got a wee bit of momentum going again but we need to keep it going because we’ve achieved nothing at this point.
“We’ve got a 25-man squad, everyone’s desperate to start, and the manager’s got a tough job just picking the 11.”
