While Mohamed Salah was the undisputed Man of the Match following his four-goal haul against Watford on Saturday evening, Liverpool fans were also delighted with the performance of another of their summer signings.
Andrew Robertson, who arrived at Anfield from Hull City last summer, is becoming an increasingly important player for the Reds after finally establishing his status as the club’s first-choice left-back.
The 24-year-old initially struggled for minutes following his summer transfer but is now firmly ahead of both James Milner and Alberto Moreno in the pecking order.
Robertson continued to enhance his reputation with a fine performance in Liverpool’s 5-0 victory against Watford.
As well as helping his side keep a clean sheet, the Scotland international also registered the assist for Mohamed Salah’s second goal.
Handing him an 8/10 rating for his display, the Liverpool Echo’s Andy Kelly wrote: “Steady as usual plus a great assist. One nice long ball put Mane behind the defence. Superb cross for Salah's second. Strong a couple of times at the back post which is not flashy but great full-back work.”
Liverpool fans can't believe how much Robertson cost
Liverpool fans can’t believe Robertson only cost the club £8 million - a relative bargain when you look at some of the fees forked out for inferior players over the past 12 months.
Moreover, Liverpool paid virtually nothing for the full-back because Kevin Stewart moved in the opposite direction for a similar fee.
Tony Bellew tells Liverpool fans what a real bargain is
However, British boxer and passionate Everton fan Tony Bellew couldn’t help but remind giddy Liverpool supporters what a true bargain looks like.
Replying to a Liverpool fan’s tweet, Bellew wrote: “Sorry to disrupt you but you should never forget that Seamus Coleman cost 60k tbh.“
Coleman is one of the best value-for-money signings ever
While it’s true that Everton signed Coleman almost nine years ago now, £60,000 for a player of that calibre remains one of the best value-for-money signings of the Premier League era.
David Moyes still deserves huge credit for securing that deal for the Toffees.
Coleman only recently returned to action after suffering an awful double fracture of his right leg in March 2017.
Prior to his injury he was unquestionably one of the best full-backs in England’s top division.
Hopefully the 29-year-old can hit the same heights after spending almost a year on the sidelines.
