Robertson’s assist for the second goal needs discussed though.

Spectacular Robertson cross for the second Liverpool strike

You won’t see many better assists all season than the one Robertson provided for his Egyptian teammate. As he burst down the line, there was one end result in his mind.

From yards outside the box, he wrapped his boot around a curving cross, which spectacularly rounded the whole City backline and into the path of Salah. He was able to finish, ensuring Robertson’s brilliant cross resulted in a goal.

Heading into the international break, this latest Reds triumph will be a confidence boost for the Scots captain. His attention will quickly turn to two warmup games against Cyprus and Kazakhstan ahead of the Euro 2020 play-offs in March.

Robertson will head into it knowing his side have a great chance to create history this term.
