'Wow': Some Liverpool fans hail player's display v Porto after struggling last Saturday
A number of Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to praise Andrew Robertson’s impressive display against Porto in the Champions League.
The Reds left-back struggled last Saturday in the 3-3 Premier League draw with Brentford.
In that game, Robertson played 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.
However, the Scotland international didn’t need long to put that display behind him as he delivered in Portugal on Tuesday night.
Liverpool ran out 5-1 winners over Porto, with Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino bagging a brace apiece, and Sadio Mane also scoring.
And Robertson looked back to his best, both offensively and defensively.
The 27-year-old’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.
A much better performance overall, and Liverpool fans loved what they saw:

Perfect night for us with the front three doing the job as usual. Brilliant display from Curtis, and Robbo was superb all night. Goes without saying, Salah was unstoppable. Liverpool are different gravy in Europe #PORLIV #LFC #UCL— Mara (@mara_lfc) September 28, 2021

What we learnt today:— Sunny (@suhailio9) September 28, 2021
1. Jones is an exceptional talent. Involved in all 5 goals. You wanted him dropped?
2. Robertson is the best left-back around. You can calm down with the calls for Tsimikas now.
3. FC Porto are sick of facing us.#LFC #YNWA
