Having won their first Premier League title in 30 years and sixth Champions League trophy during Jurgen Klopp’s reign at Liverpool, it’s safe to say they have a plethora of talented players in their squad.
One figure, in particular, that we feel is deserving of much praise at Anfield is Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson, who was the only Reds player to start every Premier League game last season, proving just how vital he was for Klopp’s side.
Since joining the Merseyside club from Championship club Hull City back in the 2017 summer transfer window, Robertson has gone on to make 184 appearances for Liverpool across all competitions in which he has managed to score five goals and provide 38 assists along the way.
So far this season, Robertson, who is currently earning a weekly wage of £50k-per-week according to Spotrac, has made seven appearances for the Reds across all competitions, providing one assist that came during the club’s 3-3 draw against Brentford in the Premier League.
In terms of his market value, Robertson’s value stood at £9m according to Transfermarkt back in January 2018, whereas now it stands at £58.5m, highlighting a quite meteoric rise at Anfield.
Taking all of this into account, we feel that Liverpool’s signing of Robertson has been one of their best pieces of transfer business since Klopp’s arrival in 2015.
Looking at his latest performance for Liverpool during their recent 2-2 draw against Manchester City at Anfield, Robertson once again proved how important he is for the team, particularly from a defensive point of view.
The 27-year-old won every duel he was involved in, made five clearances, three interceptions, two tackles and blocked one shot, ultimately earning himself a solid overall match rating of 7.1/10, higher than the likes of Diogo Jota, Fabinho and Virgil van Dijk according to SofaScore.
Moving forward, we see no reason why Robertson won’t continue to be a regular starter for Liverpool this season unless Klopp feels the need to rest him for whatever reason, with Kostas Tsimikas coming in as he did during their 3-0 win over Crystal Palace, or a potential injury keeps him out of action.
