Andrew Robertson continues to shine for Liverpool

Andrew Robertson is arguably having his best season at Liverpool since his move to Anfield in 2017. 

Despite the injury crisis at Liverpool this season, Robertson has featured in all 17 Premier League games so far. In those 17 games, the Scotland international has one goal and five assists to his name.

Those five assists put him just two assists behind the likes of Jack Grealish and Bruno Fernandes (both on seven) and three behind Kevin De Bruyne (eight). He continues to be one of the most creative players in the league despite his position on the pitch.

However, Robertson is finding himself receiving the ball on a more regular occurrence from his teammates. He is currently top in league stats in terms of touches (1754) and passes (1265), this shows how comfortable his teammates are to give him the ball even under pressure.

Even on the international stage, Robertson has now shown just how important he is this season. He captained his Scotland side to their first international tournament in 22 years in October last year.

During last season, pundits and fans felt that Trent Alexander-Arnold was a few steps ahead of Robertson. The feeling was during last season, Trent’s game had gone to a level in which Robertson could not reach.

Interestingly, it is now Robertson who is playing at a level which makes him the best left-back in Europe. At times Trent must be looking across the pitch and wondering why he is not playing at the same level.

When Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez suffered their injuries, everyone associated with the club wondered who would step up in their absence. In a season which has been stop-start for Liverpool, Andrew Robertson has been the man to step up.
