‘Buzzing’… Andy Robertson says Liverpool’s squad are all amazed with 26-year-old teammate

Andy Robertson says the whole of the Liverpool squad are delighted by how one of their teammates is currently playing

Despite Liverpool’s loss against Arsenal on Sunday, positivity is still surrounding the Reds’ season.

As long as they don’t let defeat at the Emirates turn into a wider malaise, there’s no reason for Liverpool to feel downbeat. There’s still everything to play for this term.

One point of positivity recently has been the return to fitness of Andy Robertson. However, given the form of Joe Gomez at left-back, the Scotland captain is yet to start a game since regaining availability.

Gomez has been one of Liverpool’s best players all season. And speaking to liverpoolfc.com, Robertson hailed the 26-year-old’s consistency, while admitted that Gomez’s teammates are all really rooting for him.

“He’s such an important squad member and such an important player to have around this place, because he can cover every position and every position he has, he doesn’t drop in quality,” says the left-back. “His quality is there to be seen by everyone and I think he is getting the appreciation he deserves. Joey has been fantastic ever since I’ve come to the club. He’s had tough times in terms of injuries as well, but this season he has been phenomenal in every position he has played.

“He has stayed fit and he has got rhythm as well, which is so important. Long may that continue for him because he’s obviously one of the nicer guys, I think he’s the nicest probably within the whole squad. Everyone is just buzzing that he’s doing so well.”

Robertson hails Gomez form

It’s hard not to be delighted for Joe Gomez this season. After such a difficult couple of years at Liverpool, the England international is showing his true colours once again.

As Robertson says, Gomez has been terrific in every position in defence this season. With injuries biting, that has been absolutely invaluable.

Former Liverpool winger Steve McManaman recently compared the Reds’ No.2 to Real Madrid pair Lucas Vasquez and Nacho Fernandez. His ability to slot in where needed may not lead to superstar status, but it’s absolutely vital to a winning team.

Without Gomez’s performances at left-back in particular, it’s safe to say that Liverpool would not be in the position they are this season.

Missing Robertson and Kostas Tsimikas to injury could have been a really big problem for Jurgen Klopp. Against top wide players in the Premier League, there was set to be a glaring weakness in Liverpool’s back line.

That Gomez has ensured that hasn’t been the case has been one of the story’s of the campaign so far.

It says everything about the former Charlton youngster’s displays that Robertson has had to wait for his chance since coming back. It’s now been three games that the regular left-back has been fit for, and he’s had to settle for a place for the bench in each of them.

You’d expect that to change for Saturday’s visit of Burnley, but what a job Joe has done in the meantime.
