Liverpool went 16 points clear at the top of the Premier League with a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Wolves at Molineux last night.
Jordan Henderson and Roberto Firmino sealed the win for the league leaders, either side of Raul Jimenez’s equaliser as Wolves broke Liverpool’s run of clean sheets.
Adama Traore set up that equaliser and continued his strong recent form with another livewire performance, with Andy Robertson the main player charged with stopping him.
Liverpool won the match – just as they did when the sides met over Christmas – so it’s a case of job done but Traore is as tough an opponent as there is for a full back in the Premier League right now.
The performance of Traore certainly seemed to have a few Reds fans on Twitter worried, and they worried that Robertson was unable to cope with his bursts.
There were some online telling Robertson to up his game and get some rest after one of his most testing assignments of the season.
Robertson will likely sit out the weekend visit to Shrewsbury in the FA Cup before Liverpool travel to West Ham looking to go 19 points clear of Manchester City.
There are not too many things for Reds fans to worry about right now, but there was some concern over Robertson’s display at Molineux.
Massive W bossman but you got away with one

Coming up against players like @AdamaTrd37 will only make you better Andrew. He gave you a good test tonight and you kept it clean and done your job. That guy will terrorise every LB he faces, he's a beast
