Liverpool return to Premier League motion on Sunday as they face Wolves at Anfield, with the Reds hoping to decide up three factors to maintain the strain on Tottenham Hotspur, who’re presently forward of Jurgen Klopp’s facet on the top of the table on objective distinction.
The Merseyside membership picked up an vital 1-0 win towards Ajax in midweek to safe their place within the Champions League knockout phases.
One man who can be key to whether or not or not Liverpool can safe all three factors at Anfield is Scottish left-again, Andrew Robertson.
The previous Hull Metropolis man did go down injured throughout midweek however accomplished the total 90 minutes, with Klopp suggesting in his press convention earlier this week that he could be most probably be match to play towards the Outdated Gold.
If he does begin, the 26-12 months-previous may have to be at his finest if he needs to maintain the Wolves attackers quiet throughout the recreation at Anfield.
Robertson was singled out for reward by former Liverpool defender Fabio Aurelio earlier this 12 months, with the Brazilian saying:
“He’s type of the entire participant as a result of bodily he’s nicely able to going ahead and going again he defends very nicely.
“He’s fast, so his one-v-one is sweet and defensively that’s crucial within the scheme Klopp performs. He goes ahead very simply.” (per Liverpool FC)
Can Robertson get the higher of Adama Traore?
Wolves boast a plethora of attacking choices on the wing, regardless of Diogo Jota becoming a member of the Reds this summer time, with Pedro Neto, Daniel Podence and Adama Traore all able to inflicting issues for the Liverpool defence.
Traore specifically, triggered lots of points for Liverpool of their 2-1 win at Molineux final season, with Klopp filled with reward for the Spanish winger after the sport, saying:
“[Traore] is unplayable in moments, it’s unbelievable. What a participant – it’s not solely him however he’s so good.” (per Goal)
His efficiency in that show earned him a formidable 7.7 rating regardless of the defeat, while Robertson picked up a 6.42 rating in addition to a yellow card, so it may positively be argued that Traore bought the higher of the Liverpool left-again on that night.
While the 24-12 months-previous has been nowhere close to as spectacular as final season up to now this marketing campaign, with no objectives or assists in his 10 high-flight appearances, he has nonetheless averaged a strong 6.85 rating for his performances, so continues to be seemingly to be a risk on Sunday if he performs.
Nevertheless, if Robertson can play to his finest capacity and maintain Traore quiet on Sunday afternoon, then there’s no purpose why the Reds can’t lengthen their unbeaten house run within the Premier League.
