Thiago Hilariously Winds Up Andy Robertson Over Man Of The Match Award, Cracks Brilliant Joke

​Thiago hilariously couldn't understand how Andy Robertson was awarded the 'Man of the Match' as he joked about his 'two' assists.

Thiago and Robertson starred as Liverpool beat Arsenal 2-0 to keep the pressure on Premier League leaders Manchester City.

In the second half, the midfielder played in Diogo Jota for their opener, with the left-back setting up Roberto Firmino.

But Liverpool were fortunate to not be trailing at the break, with Thiago producing an almighty mistake to allow Alexandre Lacazette​ through on goal. 

He misplaced a back-pass to Alisson, but the Frenchman was unable to capitalise. 

Of course, the Reds went into the break level then scored two second half goals to secure three points. 

Liverpool's Scottish defender was named 'Man of the Match' - with Thiago winding him up over the award as he poked fun at himself over his mistake. 

On the title race, Robertson talked up Man City but insists they need to focus on themselves. 

"I don’t like games in hand much, I would rather points. I would still rather be in Man City’s position," he said. 

"They are a point ahead. They are a fantastic team, one of the best in the world. Then it’s a sprint to the finish line.

"We’re in the race so we need to focus on what we’re doing. We still have to go to their place.

"We have another huge game on Sunday - a chance to get to Wembley. But if we keep winning games we’ll be there or thereabouts at the moment."​

Thiago added: "We were wishing Manchester City dropped points and they did. The gap now is one point but we are just looking forward to the Nottingham Forest game and nothing else.

"We just try to win each game we have. We have to analyse this game to go through the things we did wrong and right then looking forward. That is the key - to stay humble and hungry."

Liverpool are just one point behind Man City, with nine league games remaining. 

And, like Robertson mentioned, Jurgen Klopp's team still have to go to the Etihad.
