Andy Robertson’s sublime cross from the left put our opener on a plate for Bobby Firmino, who was able to jump and head us into the lead against Tottenham Hotspur.
Robbo already had eight assists to his name in the league this season – with a further one under his belt, the Scot has joined an elite group of defenders.
9 – Andy Robertson has nine assists for @LFC in the Premier League this season; Andy Hinchliffe (1994-95) and Leighton Baines (2010-11) are the only defenders to have had more in a single campaign (both 11). Delivery. #LIVTOT

With nine assists now Robertson is cementing himself as one of the best attacking full-backs in the world, let alone the Premier League.
With another half of the Spurs game, and six more games to go, we fancy Robbo to get at least another two assists to his name.
It’s hard to think of another defender with a left foot as lethal as Robbo’s.
