Trent Alexander-Arnold is getting all the praise for Liverpool after last night’s 4-2 win at Manchester United – and rightly so.
The 22-year-old played a massive role in two of the four goals that Jurgen Klopp’s side scored.
And defensively, Alexander-Arnold didn’t put a foot wrong as Liverpool moved fifth in the Premier League table and four points behind Chelsea, who have played one game more.
But Andy Robertson, on the other flank, also had a very good game.
The Scottish left-back found himself in a foot race with the jet-heeled Marcus Rashford on a number of occasions but seemed to come out on top every time.
Robertson, an £8 million signing in 2017, didn’t get forward all that often, but he was solid defensively and his speed, in particular, impressed Lee Dixon.
The former Arsenal right-back told NBC Sport: “He’s got rockets in his boots. I knew he was quick but Rashford up against him. He was at least a yard ahead of him. Absolutely brilliant from Robertson to get back and not only that, but put a tackle in and keep possession.”
Apart from the stellar individual displays, what a massive win for the Anfield outfit.
Liverpool’s last three games are against West Brom, Burnley and Crystal Palace, the first two of which are away from home.
And nine points from those three games might well be enough to see Klopp’s side nick a Champions League spot ahead of Leicester or Chelsea, who face one another in one of their last two matches.
