Five facts about Liverpool prospect Jack Robinson

Liverpool defender Jack Robinson could be set for a big season at Anfield, so what do fans need to know about him?

After suffering serious injury and enjoying a succesful loan spell away in the Championship, defender Jack Robinson is back at Liverpool and raring to go.

The left-back could be the latest young player to become a regular in Brendan Rodgers’ side. So for those fans wanting to know a little more about a player tipped for a big future at Anfield, here are five facts to get you started:

1) Robinson was handed his senior Liverpool debut back in 2010, when he became the youngest player ever to play for the club aged just 16 years and 250 days. That record would later be broken by Jerome Sinclair, who would go on to feature for Liverpool just six days after his 16th birthday.

2) Robinson is predominantly a left-back, although he can also operate in the centre of defence when required.

3) The defender has made 11 appearances for Liverpool to date, his time at the club blighted by a series of injuries. He has also spent time on loan at both Wolverhampton Wanderers and Blackpool, making 11 appearances for the former and featuring 36 times for the latter.

4) He is yet to score a senior goal, however he provided four assists so far, three of which came last season. He has scored three times for Liverpool’s under-21 side to date.

5) Robinson has played for England from under-16 to under-21, making 28 appearances in total across a variety of age-ranges. He made his debut for England’s under-21s in 2012, and has 12 caps and one goal at that level so far in his career.
