Liverpool fans are excited about Andrew Robertson after his goal for Scotland

Liverpool's squad is looking a lot healthier thanks to some astute business this summer.

Mohamed Salah, Dominic Solanke, and latest addition Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have all been brought into bolster Jurgen Klopp's attack - not that it needs much improving on current evidence.

They've also pulled off one of the biggest surprises of the transfer window by fending off Barcelona and keeping hold of Philippe Coutinho.

Nonetheless, the Reds could still have done more. The defence is the big worry and Virgil van Dijk would have gone a long way towards sorting it out had he arrived from Southampton as expected.

Question marks remain over the left-back position too. Such were the concerns over Alberto Moreno that James Milner deputised in his position last season.

The former England international is 31, though, and he's a central midfielder by trade, so this isn't exactly a long-term solution.

Fortunately, Klopp invested £8million, rising to £10m, in Andrew Robertson from Hull City.

The 23-year-old made his debut against Crystal Palace and but for a couple of shaky clearances, he was generally solid and at the very least, looked like he knew where he was supposed to be on the pitch; that's got to be an improvement on Moreno.

Robertson looks class

The Anfield faithful will have to wait until September 9 to potentially see him in action in a Premier League game, when Liverpool take on Manchester City. In the mean time, he's away on international duty with Scotland.

He helped his country to an important 3-0 win over Lithuania in their World Cup qualifier last night. All Liverpool ask of him is that he defends properly, but he's also got a lethal strike on him.

Check out his goal below:

It's been a long time since Liverpool fans got excited about any aspect of their defence, but Robertson definitely looks like one for the future. They love him already:
