Andy Robertson slammed his Liverpool team-mates after the disappointing draw with Premier League strugglers West Brom and says ‘every player make a mistake’ as Sam Allardyce frustrated the Reds again.

Defending champions Liverpool dominated for large periods at Anfield and looked set to go five points clear after Sadio Mane chested down Joel Matip’s long ball and fired past Sam Johnstone.

But Liverpool failed to put the game to bed and were made to pay when West Brom’s Semi Ajayi rose well and headed home from a late corner.

It was just West Brom’s eighth point of the season and the first since Allardyce replace Slaven Bilic as manager.

Robertson said: ‘When you go slack you get what you deserve.

‘When you come up against a Sam Allardyce team you know they will stay in it and take the one chance they get.

‘We created a lot of chances in the first half and then in the second half it was as if we didn’t want to do it again. We went slack.

‘Every one of us made a mistake in the second half which can’t happen. Credit to west ham for the way they played the second half.

‘You know they will look to frustrate you and play the game down and hit you on the counter-attack. We didn’t let them do that in the first half and then they grow with confidence the longer it goes 1-0.

‘We should be experienced enough to see it out and build on the 1-0. We should have been 2-0, 3-0, maybe 4-0 up at half time.

‘We were dominating and it was up to us to take the chances but we also should be professional enough to win 1-0 if we have to.

‘We will take the point and move on. We can’t dwell on it but it’s a huge disappointment.

‘I’ve been in a Championship team that has come up and you want to frustrate the big teams and get that one chance you can get and that’s exactly what happened. Credit to them.

‘They were great in the second half but we need to be so much more professional. We didn’t do that enough and that is frustrating.’

Liverpool continue their Premier League campaign on Wednesday against Newcastle United.
