The Brazil international fumbled Romelu Lukaku’s cross into the path of Jesse Lingard for the equaliser at Anfield, and it could have proved costly had Xherdan Shaqiri not scored twice in final 20 minutes to secure a 3-1 victory.
It is something the squad are fully appreciative of.
“He has been unbelievable this season and we all make mistakes,” said Robertson.
“If Mo Salah or (Roberto) Firmino make a mistake it maybe doesn’t get punished because it is up the other end but that is unfortunately what a keeper has to put up with, if they make a mistake it usually turns into a goal.
“Of course, he will be disappointed with it but he bounced back and we can’t moan about it, he has dug us out Tuesday night and we are still in the Champions League because of him.
“We have not dug him out of a hole but we have put in a performance and his error hasn’t been highlighted because we have won the game and that is what a good squad does.”
Liverpool returned to the top of the table with their win over United and lead Manchester City by a point again with the title battle increasingly looking like a two-horse race.
Robertson is confident they can hold off the challenge of Pep Guardiola’s side, and they could extend their lead to four points with a win at Wolves on Friday.
“We are in December, we know how tough this period is but we are top of the league. We have just got to keep this period going,” he added.
“We know how good Man City are – we have a bit of a gap that has opened up now (to third) – and the two of us are close to each other but we believe we can stay top.
“There is a long way to go and we still have to play big games, starting on Friday night and we hopefully move on from there.
“We have come out unscathed but we need to move on from that. We can’t just say ‘four games we have played well’ and take our eye off the ball.
“We need to stay focused 100 per cent and look forward to the challenge at Wolves who have done well this season.”
