Andy Robertson, a defender for Liverpool, has accrued 55 assists after this past weekend’s amazing Premier League victory, according to BBC pundit Robbie Savage.
What’s the latest Andy Robertson and Liverpool’s 7-0 win?
On Sunday afternoon, the Reds blew away opponents Manchester United in incredible fashion as they won 7-0 to embarrass Erik ten Hag and co at Anfield.
At one stage, however, it looked as though it would be a fairly close content and with the scores level at 0-0 and just two minutes to go until half-time, Robertson played a clever ball through to set up Cody Gakpo’s opener.
This happened to be the left-back’s 55th assist in the English top flight which means he now has more than other Premier League icons such as Eden Hazard, Juan Mata and Mesut Ozil.
Seeing as the aforementioned trio of Hazard, Ozil, and Mata were all attacking, creative players, it’s quite remarkable that defender Robertson has managed to beat their assist totals.
In fact, the Liverpool player has now passed current colleague Mo Salah and drawn even with Manchester United great Paul Scholes and Manchester City winger Riyad Mahrez.
Robertson broke Leighton Baines’ old mark of 189 games earlier this season to become the Premier League defender with the most assists in the history of the league.
Considering everything, it’s easy to understand why the Scottish left-back was singled out for praise on what was a magnificent day for his club as they thrashed Man United.
