Liverpool took another big step towards their first Premier League title on Monday by seeing off a plucky West Ham United at Anfield.
The Reds surprisingly fell behind against David Moyes’ side, but turned things around to keep their unbeaten run going.
The 3-2 victory means Jurgen Klopp’s side have now won 18 straight Premier League matches, which has equalled the record set by Manchester City.
There were top performances on show by Liverpool individuals, with Trent Alexander-Arnold catching the eye with two more assists.
Speaking on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football, Jamie Carragher spoke of the quality in Liverpool’s side.
He reckons Liverpool have six players that fall into the ‘world-class’ bracket.
He said (Liverpool Echo): “I think Liverpool have got six world-class players. They have got the goalkeeper [Alisson], Trent Alexander-Arnold, then you have got Virgil van Dijk, they have got [Sadio] Mane, [Roberto] Firmino and then they have got Salah.”
Interestingly, there was no mention for Andy Robertson, who is considered by many as the best in the world in his position these days, which surely would suggest him as being world-class.
TBR’s view – Robertson belongs in world-class category
It is a surprise Carragher didn’t also acknowledge Robertson, who has become an absolutely crucial part of Liverpool’s team today.
Just like Alexander-Arnold on the opposite flank, Robertson causes all sorts of damage down the left by overlapping Sadio Mane.
His delivery isn’t quite as consistent as the Englishman’s, but the Scot has plenty of assists to his name to suggest it’s more than good enough (25 in total for Liverpool).
What’s more though, Robertson’s incredible stamina allows him to get back in quickly and defend, which is vital.
