Liverpool left-back Andrew Robertson has been praised by BBC Sport pundit Martin Keown for one moment in today’s Premier League win in which he looked like his “old” self again.
The Reds star put in a great display against Aston Villa at Anfield as he constantly drove up the left flank and was a danger with his deliveries from set pieces.
Robertson, who has struggled for form recently, played a big part in Liverpool’s equaliser, making a surging 40-yard run and whipping the ball across the face of goal.
Although Emiliano Martinez made a strong save, Mohamed Salah was there to get to the ball first and head home to cancel out Ollie Watkins’ opener.
“Andy Robertson was the star there,” Keown said on Final Score (16:22).
“He starts well behind the play, makes a 40-50 yard run, hits it across the face of goal and Mo Salah puts it in. That was the Robertson of old.”
The goal proved the springboard for Liverpool to eventually pick up all three points, Trent Alexander-Arnold curling home from 20 yards out late on.
Robertson has made 42 appearances in all competition this season, 31 in the Premier League, and has claimed one goal and five assists in the top flight this term.
Up next for Liverpool is Wednesday’s Champions League quarter-final second leg against Real Madrid at Anfield.
