Liverpool fans here in the Tavern are still yet to stop celebrating the weekend’s win over Manchester City, as supporters continue to head to the bar.
The Reds have assembled one of the most dangerous attacks to have ever been seen at Anfield, as the memories of Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge and Raheem Sterling’s dream partnership is soon to be forgotten. Although, there’s still the same errors creeping into proceedings as defensive mistakes continue to hold back the Reds, and the injury to the impressive Alberto Moreno looked to have condemned even more troubles.
However, this gave the out of favour Andy Robertson a chance to prove his worth in the starting line-up, and it’s safe to say he’s relishing the opportunity of extended minutes as one of the Reds’ unsung heroes in recent times.
Indeed, he managed to find a place deep in the hearts of many Liverpool fans in the weekend’s encounter with Manchester City for one simple reason, after sending former Liverpool man Raheem Sterling sprawling across the floor.
Something that even the staff enjoyed, as Liverpool’s Twitter account took to posting a video of tackles from the weekend’s game.

For a player that many felt was a rushed buy for the German, his performances in recent times have gone a long way to staking a claim for a regular place in the side.
Nevertheless, here’s a look at the sort of reaction supporters gave off on social media…
The making of a legend in Robertson.
