Liverpool supporters were left drooling over the performance of Andrew Robertson as the Reds beat West Ham 4-1 on Saturday in the Premier League.
After a break from league action due to FA Cup fixtures, there were no signs of Jurgen Klopp’s side not being ready for this one-sided affair and dominated throughout the ninety minutes.
Goals from Emre Can, Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino, and Sadio Mane temporarily saw the Reds go second in the table, only to be replaced by Manchester United 24 hours later.
But it was the display of left-back Andrew Robertson that had tongues wagging amongst the Liverpool faithful on social media post-match.
The former Hull City defender only arrived at the club last summer in an £8million switch from the then relegated Premier League side and has gone from strength to strength under Klopp.
Saturday was his 23rd appearance for Liverpool and it would seem that the supporters believe the 23-year-old is now a mainstay in the defence, pushing usual first choice Alberto Moreno out behind him.
One fan compared the full-back to former Reds defender Steve Nicol and there were others who on current form reckon that Robertson is the ‘Best left back in the league.’
Here is a selection of Twitter responses to the display of the Scot:
Reminds me of Steve Nicol. Not got the goals he did but it’s early days but very very impressive.

Great to have a decent Scottish lad in the team again. Feels like an omen that we need one to win the league again. He did a podcast interview with Graham Hunter a few weeks ago – came across as a good, intelligent lad.

Love it when tweets age well, or was it said in the Studio?
He's no world beater but he puts in min. 7/10 performances week in week out and every fan can relate to a player that gives everything!

Bargain at 11 million….
We need a rule where we have to have at least one Scotsman in the squad at all times.

Best left back in the league on current form. Absolutely unreal business getting him for near enough what we got from Hull for Stewart
