Liverpool fans praise Andrew Robertson after Everton win

Liverpool progressed to the fourth round of the FA Cup as they beat arch-rivals Everton 2-1 at Anfield on Friday night thanks to Virgil van Dijk’s late winner on his debut, and Reds fans were impressed with Andrew Robertson;s performance.

The Scotland international struggled for game time earlier in the campaign following his summer move from Hull City, with Alberto Moreno chosen to be the first-choice left-back by Jurgen Klopp.

However, an injury to the Spaniard has given Robertson more regular minutes on the pitch in recent weeks – even though he was only on the substitutes’ bench against Burnley in the Premier League last time out – and he performed admirably against the pace and trickery of the Toffees’ Yannick Bolasie on Friday.

Liverpool supporters were quick to have their say on the 23-year-old’s display via social media, and while one said he “deserves to start vs City” next time out, another said he “should start every week, even when Moreno is fit”.
