Liverpool legend John Aldridge believes the Reds should pick Andrew Robertson ahead of Alberto Moreno for the big game on Saturday against fierce rivals Manchester United.
The 23-year-old full-back was named Man of the Match in Scotland’s World Cup qualifier win against Slovakia last week and looked a huge threat going forward against Slovenia as well 3 days later.
“I would love Andy Robertson to start at left back,” the 59-year-old wrote in his column in the Echo.
“I like the look of this lad, I like his left foot and the balance he gives going forward. He also looks a better defender than Alberto Moreno, from the little bits I’ve seen. When he’s started for us, he’s had an impact.”
Robertson has been given just two league starts after his switch to Anfield this summer but the Scot has looked far more convincing in the defence than Alberto Moreno, who despite his attacking prowess and recent improvements, still looks vulnerable in that troubled left-back position.
United have scored 21 league goals so far this season and with our defence looking completely out of sorts at the moment, Klopp could do worse than pick his more defensively assuring left-back to add a bit of stability in that leaky left side of our backline.
Meanwhile, Dejan Lovren, who recently revealed how he’s taking painkillers to be able to play without training amid multiple injuries, looks likely to be available for the clash.
The Croat played full 90 minutes and kept a clean sheet in his country’s crucial win against Ukraine on Monday and showed no signs of weariness or pain.
Do you agree with Aldo that Robertson should be picked ahead of Moreno on Saturday?
