£83k-a-week Liverpool ace answered his critics with his 'best game in a while' last night - TBR View

Liverpool ace Andrew Robertson is a player whose credentials should never really be in doubt.

However, there were calls for the Reds left-back to be dropped following their draw with Brentford on Saturday.

Admittedly, Robertson didn’t have a great game, playing Sergi Canos onside for the opposition’s first goal.

He also struggled to make inroads in the first half and made errors in the second.

Denmark 2-0 Scotland: Steve Clarke's side fail to impress in Copenhagen

There were calls amongst some fans for Robertson to be dropped and for Kostas Tsimikas to take his place in the XI.

The Greece international has looked very impressive this season after a tough maiden campaign on Merseyside.

However, Jurgen Klopp kept faith in Robertson, and was rewarded with a superb display against Porto in the Champions League.

The £83,000-a-week ace’s pass to Curtis Jones led to Liverpool’s opening goal, the midfielder’s effort forcing a save which Salah then netted on the rebound.

Then, Robertson’s surging run into the box and an impressive cutback almost created a goal for Diogo Jota.

Overall, the 27-year-old was on point offensively and defensively, putting an end to calls for him to be dropped.

Liverpool fans loved what they saw:

With Tsimikas also in great form, there is now great competition at left-back, which increases standards.

But it’ll be difficult to dislodge Robertson from the XI, given his quality and how hard he works to overcome blips in form.
