Everton and Liverpool's left-backs have ranked among the best in the Premier League this season.

Liverpool fans have hit back at Everton boss Marco Silva’s comments to the Liverpool Echo about Andrew Robertson.

Silva has suggested that Everton left-back Lucas Digne is actually better than Robertson.

But the Anfield crowd do not agree with the Everton boss’s assessment of the two full-backs.

“Robertson is a very good one also. He is a fantastic boy, a fantastic professional," the Toffees boss said. 

“He is our rival but he deserves everything he is achieving in his career but Lucas is Lucas, and Lucas, for me, is the best one because he is our player and playing in our blue shirt.”

Digne and Robertson have played key roles for Everton and Liverpool respectively this season.

Digne only arrived at Goodison Park from Barcelona over the summer but he has quickly taken to English football.


Robertson, meanwhile, plays a vital role in Jurgen Klopp’s side’s defence.

Robertson has made himself Liverpool’s first choice left-back, with his performances earning him a great deal of praise over the campaign.
