The Reds have not enjoyed a good of defence of their first Premier League title as they sit 22 points behind league leaders Manchester City.

The Reds have had 18 injuries to deal with this season, with Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez not expected to return this season while Jordan Henderson recently underwent surgery.

"If you tell any team in world football that they’re going to have 18 different partnerships in a season at centre-back, no team in the world deals with that - not one,” Robertson told Sky Sports.

"Usually we have Virg, who’s very vocal, we have Joey Gomez that leads by example and we have Joel that leads by example. We’ve had Fabinho, Hendo.

"But now we’ve got Nat Phillips who obviously wasn’t here last season, was out on loan, and now he’s there. We’ve got [Ozan] Kabak who’s just a young lad, who’s just come in, and we’ve got Ben Davies who’s been signed from a Championship club and needs to take time - and big Rhys [Williams] of course.

"But all of them are relatively inexperienced and it's trying to help them, but also trying to help the team by focusing on yourself.

"So it’s been tough for me personally of course it has, but look - it’s part and parcel of it. I’m probably the leader at the back, I’m probably the most vocal at the back now and it’s just trying to make sure that we do as well as we can and we try and keep as many clean sheets as we can, because that’s the only way we’re going to win games."
