Pundit singles out Andy Robertson after Liverpool FC victory
Garth Crooks praises Andy Robertson for his solid display in Liverpool FC's win at Leicester
Garth Crooks singled out Andy Robertson for special praise after Liverpool FC’s 2-1 win over Leicester City in the Premier League on Saturday.
The Scot earned lots of new admirers last season as he helped Liverpool FC to finish in fourth place in the Premier League and reach the Champions League final.
Robertson held down a regular spot in the first team last term after joining the Merseyside outfit from Hull City last summer.
The 24-year-old has continued his impressive form this season and he has already bagged two assists in his first four Premier League appearances for Jurgen Klopp’s men.
And Crooks was particularly impressed by the left-back’s performance as he helped Liverpool FC to maintain their 100 per cent start to the new campaign.
Writing in his column for BBC Sport, Crooks said: “Last week I singled out Alexander-Arnold for special praise.
“This week it’s left-back Andrew Robertson, who was at the heart of Liverpool’s victory. The young Scot can be ruthless in defence and quite devastating in attack.
“The way he looked up and picked out Sadio Mane for their opening goal is something we are beginning to expect from the defender.
“Robertson and Alexander-Arnold form part of a Liverpool back four who have become very stingy.”
Liverpool FC will be looking to make it five wins on the spin in the Premier League when they take on Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley after the international break.
The Reds are currently top of the Premier League table after their solid start to the new campaign under Klopp.
