Pundit claims Liverpool FC star is a better left-back than Marcos Alonso
Steve McMahon claims Liverpool FC star Andy Robertson deserved to be named in the PFA Premier League team of the year
Steve McMahon has claimed that Liverpool FC star Andy Robertson has outperformed Chelsea FC defender Marcos Alonso this season.
The Spain international secured the left-back spot in the PFA Premier League team of the year following his performances in a struggling Chelsea FC team.
Alonso has netted six times and has made two assists in 31 appearances in the Premier League this season.
However, the 26-year-old has been part of a Chelsea FC team that has struggled in their defence of their title.
Liverpool FC signed Robertson in an £8m deal from relegated Hull City in the 2017 summer transfer window.
The Scotland international started the season as Jurgen Klopp’s second-choice left-back behind Alberto Moreno.
However, the Spanish defender suffered an injury in early December to present Robertson with the chance to secure a regular starting spot.
Robertson has excelled in the Liverpool team to help the Reds reach the Champions League semi-finals and challenge Manchester United for second place.
Former Liverpool FC midfielder McMahon believes Robertson deserved a place in the PFA team of the year ahead of Alonso.
“He has been the best left back in the Premier League over the past few months by a country mile,” McMahon told Sky Sports.
Robertson has helped Liverpool FC to keep 10 clean sheets since tying down a regular starting spot in Klopp’s team.
