In comments reported by the Daily Record, Andrew Robertson has suggested that Scott McTominay has been excellent this season as Liverpool prepare to face Manchester United this weekend.
The Reds travel to Old Trafford looking to maintain their perfect start to the Premier League season. Jurgen Klopp’s men have won all eight of their games so far, and sit eight points clear of their closest challengers.
Meanwhile, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side desperately need to get back on track. They have lost two of their last three games and sit just two points above the relegation zone.
The game pits two Scotland teammates against each other, with Robertson set to line up for Liverpool and McTominay likely to be in United’s midfield.
And following the international break, the Reds left-back heaped praise upon the youngster and suggested that he has been a standout performer for Manchester United this term.
“Scotty was fantastic for us against San Marino. And he’s been excellent all season in a United side that’s had its critics,” he said, as reported by the Daily Record. “He’s carried himself very well. I’ll be looking forward to facing him on Sunday.
“Obviously I hope to come out on top.”
TBR View – Perfect game for Manchester United?
On paper, it is difficult to see any result other than a Liverpool win. They have scored more than double the number of goals that United have. Klopp’s side also have 15 more points than their rivals.
However, the occasion could see the form book go out the window. United should need no help getting motivated for the game. Their season is being written off. And remarkably, they could go into Sunday’s game one place above the relegation zone.
Ending Liverpool’s perfect start could be the ideal way to kickstart their own campaign. It does look unlikely. But Klopp’s men will be wary of letting any complacency creep in.
