ROVING ROBERTSON IS A CREATIVE FORCE
JOSE MOURINHO’S final press conference as Manchester United manager was in Anfield’s press auditorium after his side had been whacked.
One of the abiding memories is how he waxed lyrical about Andrew Robertson, running up and down the left flank like an Olympic sprinter. That was December 2018, when the Scot was still climbing the ladder and fighting to cement his reputation. Here in March 2023, you saw Robertson tear United to pieces once again and this, arguably, was his finest performance for Liverpool. His movement and subsequent demand for Alisson to pass to him in the 43rd minute changed the course of this contest. Robertson’s assist for Cody Gakpo’s opener was his ninth of the campaign, more than any defender in the Premier League. Only Kevin De Bruyne (17) has more in all competitions.
