It’s Great To See Andrew Robertson Finally Shining At Liverpool

I wasn’t overly surprised that Liverpool managed to be the first team to beat Manchester City in the Premier League this season.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have a fast, flowing game that can unsettle any side, it’s worked in the past against other teams in the top six.

The main thing that pleased me with the Reds impressive win was Andrew Robertson’s fine performance at left full-back.

I’ve been a long admirer of the Scottish left back, ever since his Queen’s Park days in Scotland’s bottom tier.

The twenty-three year old always gives his all. He must have been frustrated by the lack of game time in the first half of the season but he’s making the most of his chance now.

He showed fantastic energy and tenacity as he pressed at every opportunity. At one point he was even on top of Man City’s goalkeeper and their left-back.

Robertson is great bombing forward and he also has a terrific ability when delivering dangerous crosses into the opponent’s penalty area. He gives his teammates a great outlet when the burst into attacking mode.

Against league leaders Manchester City, Robertson also impressed defensively. The international managed to keep Raheem Sterling quiet, which is no mean feat this term.

On Sunday; he made more clearances (seven) and the most tackles (seven). This shows us that he is learning the way Klopp wants him to play when he’s playing for the Reds.

Alberto Moreno started the season well enough but in all truthfulness the Spaniard has let Liverpool down in games that have counted in the past.

After his performance against City, Robertson has shown Jurgen Klopp that he can trust the full-back and he’s ready to shine at one of England’s biggest clubs.

The left-back was understandably delighted with everything on Sunday and reserved special praise for the home support:

I started this by stating I wasn’t surprised by Liverpool’s victory over Pep Guardiola’s men. I should also say that Sunday’s performance from Andy Robertson didn’t surprise me either.

I’ve watched throughout his career as he’s made step-up after step-up and shone at every opportunity as he met every challenge head on. He has the determination and the tenacity to succeed, even at the highest level.

To think he only cost the Merseyside club a paltry £8m!

Let’s hope he just continues to go from strength to strength at Anfield after patiently waiting for his chance.
