Steven Gerrard famously slipped when the Reds faced the Blues in 2014 with Liverpool on course to win the Premier League title.

His gaffe led to Demba Ba racing through on goal, as his shot nestled into the back of the net and Chelsea won 2-0 at Anfield.

But luckily for the Scottish left-back Robertson, his slip on Sunday came when Liverpool were leading 2-0 in the closing stages of the game, following goals from Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.

Gonzalo Higuain latched onto the loose ball after Robertson tumbled to the ground, but his attack came to nothing, with Klopp turning to the home fans and letting out an almighty roar.

Speaking about the incident after the match, the German said: "We can finally close the slipping book.

"Robbo (Andy Robertson) slipped (in the second half) and nothing happened, so it has finished."

While the ex-Hull defender took to social media to make light of his slip, posting a picture of himself on the ground, with the caption: "Relaxxx."

Reds fans saw the funny side on Twitter, as one commented: "Robertson slipped, Chelsea fans whistled. Klopp responds with a fist pump and Anfield roars with support. My manager."
