Scotland’s finest pair were put up against each other last night in a thrilling contest between Liverpool and Arsenal at Anfield.

The Merseyside team ran out 3-1 winners in the Premier League match, courtesy of goals from Sadio Mane, Scotland captain Andy Robertson and Jota. An Alexandre Lacazette goal couldn’t prevent Kieran Tierney’s side falling to defeat.

It was Steve Clarke’s two left-backs, Tierney and Robertson, facing off on opposite sides and the Liverpool man had a moment to forget.

As a ball was crossed into the area, the Scotland captain miskicked his clearance, allowing Lacazette to bury it past Allison. Liverpool would soon atone for this error, Mane levelling three minutes later.

Robertson would have personal redemption for his error, creeping in at the backpost and dinking the ball into the net over Berndt Leno to give the Reds a 2-1 lead. It was the catalyst for his team going on to win the match on a difficult night for Tierney.

 

The Arsenal man was the centre of a potential red card incident though. Goalscorer Mane caught him with an elbow in the first half, the referee only handing out a debatable yellow card.

Scotland’s pair will reunite next week ahead of the massive Euro 2020 play-off matches.
