Andrew Robertson was expected to become our first-choice left-back once he moved from Hull City at the start of the season. The Scot was relegated with the Tigers but we snapped him up for a really low price of £10 million but not everything has gone his way since moving to Anfield.

The 23-year-old has only played in three games for us this season and has seen Alberto Moreno keep his place in the after a bit of a resurgence in his Liverpool career.

There have been a number of fans who have questioned as to why Robertson is not playing for us but Jurgen Klopp has come out and said that the Scot needs more time to learn how to play the Liverpool way.

“People will say ‘why do you do that? Because he is here and not playing?’

“Because he has to learn. But there is no problem. We are in conversation, talk about it and he has to improve.”

The German was speaking to the Liverpool FC site and also added that Moreno’s form is one reason why we have not played with Robertson, though the door is still open for the 23-year-old to get game time for us.

“As long as the other players are doing like this. Alberto is like a little machine, he never shows when he is tired and stuff like this.

“Andrew has had a little less rhythm. So you think now, okay, he will have a game with the national team and come back. We will have a little internal game then and that’s good for Andy.

“So he’s on a good way, a really good way. It’s going well apart from maybe he is not happy he cannot start so often as he would have thought from the beginning.

“But it’s all about improvement and then to be ready for the moment you are used.”

Playing under Klopp isn’t easy and even though Robertson has performed well for us, the German’s logic does make sense.

Moreno too has been on fire this season and dropping him has not been easy. There will be chances in the future thanks to a fixture congestion which we will see in December and January.

Robertson could have clocked a lot of minutes had we stayed in the Carabao Cup but with the FA Cup and Champions League games around the corner, the Scot will have a few chances to prove that he is a good buy not only for the present but the future as well.

Liverpool equal two more records after their impressive 2-0 win over Fulham

Published

on

Mohamed Salah Liverpool

Liverpool don’t seem to be the same team from last season, despite boasting an unbeaten record in the Premier League.

The Reds beat Fulham 2-0 to make it 30 points from 12 games, and are just two behind Manchester City who lead the table.

Our attack hasn’t blitzed the opposition like last season, but the numbers suggest this has been an amazing start to the Premier League campaign.

Ian Doyle wrote for the Liverpool Echo about the latest game and claimed that we have matched our best points tally after 12 games.

Doyle further claimed that our goal difference of +18 was the best in terms of Premier League seasons.

Our attack might not be firing on all cylinders but our defence has been exceptional so far. Alisson kept yet another clean sheet on Sunday, and we also equalled the record for clean sheets from 1977-78 and 1978-79.

In fact, our defence has been the reason why we have done so well this season. We barely seem to concede and Virgil van Dijk has been an exceptional purchase, alongside Alisson.

The pair combined well to start an attack against the Cottagers on Sunday. Van Dijk signalled Alisson to take a free-kick early, and that resulted in Mohamed Salah opening the scoring for the Reds.

The Reds haven’t been that great in the Champions League, and we need to ensure our qualification into the next round.

“I can’t believe it”, “Shocked” – Some Liverpool fans unsure about Mohamed Salah’s choice of T-shirt

Mohamed Salah Liverpool

Mohamed Salah is one of the biggest stars in football. The Egyptian has grown in stature since his move to Liverpool from AS Roma last season, and helped Liverpool to a Champions League final too.

The former Roma star is also one of the most recognisable faces in the world, and there have been murals, statues and paintings celebrating the success of the Liverpool attacker.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the player wants a bit of privacy and Salah tweeted an image of him travelling “incognito”.

The player wearing a Balaclava would not have been much of a problem, but many fans didn’t like his choice of shirt.

The Egyptian wore a “Project-Playboy” shirt and while we cannot say what his intentions were by sporting the shirt, some of the fans questioned his taste, while others some supported him.

“I want to help the team” – Liverpool star wants to continue helping team after impressive performance against Fulham

Xherdan Shaqiri of Liverpool

Xherdan Shaqiri isn’t concerned about how many goals he scores and wants to help Liverpool do well. The Swiss star started in our 2-0 win over Fulham and scored a wonderful volley after Mohamed Salah opened the scoring.

The 26-year-old was pleased with his finish and told Liverpool’s website:

“The [kind of] impact is not so important for me. I want to help the team.

“When it’s with a goal or assist, it’s always good for the team. I came in the summer to help this team go forward and make the process better.

“I’m very happy with my performances, I just have to keep going like this and train hard every day. I hope we keep going until the end like this.”

Although the former Stoke City star hasn’t started many games for Liverpool, the stats are pretty decent for the 26-year-old.

The attacker already has two goals and three assists from four starts, and his performances should put forward his case of starting more games.

The Swiss attacker was the cheapest transfer we made in the summer, but he looks a quality purchase now.
