It was an enjoyable return to the domestic scene for Andy Robertson as he earned Man of the Match in a great Liverpool victory.

The Scotland captain had to overcome a slight hamstring knock to make this clash. It’s just as well he did, as Liverpool had several defenders missing from action.

Midfielders James Milner and Fabinho ended up in defence alongside Robertson but Liverpool still managed to win and amazingly keep a clean sheet. They beat Leicester City 2-0 at Anfield.

Robertson was the shining light, handed Man of the Match after proceedings in Merseyside. He was back to his stellar best, looking assured defensively and dangerous in attack.

He didn’t have much time to prepare himself for this meeting, coming off the back of an emotional week for Scotland in which he helped the nation secure a Euro 2020 spot.

His form next summer will be key and good performances on the domestic scene at Liverpool can only please Scotland boss Steve Clarke.
