Robertson shines with Liverpool
PREMIER LEAGUE: New Liverpool signing Andrew Robertson is hopeful he can provide the long-term solution at left-back after impressing on debut.
The £8m arrival from Hull City was one of the more effective players as Jurgen Klopp’s side laboured to a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace at Anfield to register their first Premier League win of the season.
Robertson replaced Alberto Moreno in the starting lineup and was Liverpool’s most dangerous player in the first half with a number of threatening crosses.
Last season Klopp deployed midfielder James Milner at leftback as a ‘temporary’ solution that lasted the entire campaign and previous failures in the position include Jose Enrique, Aly Cissokho, Paul Konchesky, Andrea Dossena, Emiliano Insua and Fabio Aurelio.
Robertson has a chance to secure his place for the foreseeable future and the Scotland international is hopeful it will be for even longer.
“All the left-backs at this club – Alberto, Milly (Milner) – will be thinking we can solve this situation,” he said.
“You don’t come to this club and not think you can help that position.
“We will all be thinking we can play well and have a left-back fans can be proud of.
“It was a great experience. I loved every minute of it,” he added. “It was frustrating at times, but the main thing was to get three points and we managed to get that and it was good to get a good performance defensively and a clean sheet.”
