Andy Robertson hailed Liverpool team-mate Trent Alexander-Arnold as he vowed his goal against Red Bull Salzburg will be the first of many.
Left-back Robertson fired Liverpool into a 2-0 lead in Wednesday’s Champions League seven-goal thriller at Anfield, which Jurgen Klopp’s side eventually won 4-3 after surrendering a three-goal advantage.
Robertson’s goal was an example of Liverpool’s attacking full-backs at their finest, with the Scot starting off the move before finishing off a pinpoint pass from Alexander-Arnold.
It was Robertson’s first goal since May 2018 and just the second time he has struck for the Reds.
But the 25-year-old vowed it won’t be the last – as he hailed Alexander-Arnold’s “nine out of 10” accuracy.
Robertson told Liverpool’s official website : “Running front stick, being the furthest man up the pitch, that’s not usually me but I think I started it and cut into Hendo and then, look, I know what Trent’s delivery’s like and I knew that nine out of 10 are pinpoint accurate.
“I knew if I could get in front of the defender then I had a chance and it was just about making a clean connection. Luckily I did it and it’s the first goal of the season, obviously the first one in the Champions League.
“I hope to add more this season and hopefully it’s the first of a couple I get.”
Robertson’s goal was hailed as “Liverpool at their very best” by former England striker Chris Sutton.
“Alexander-Arnold and Robertson are two of the best in Europe and essential to the Jurgen Klopp style of play.
“They push high up the pitch. They add to the attack. If you allow them time and space in those wide areas, they will hurt you.”
Sutton praised Robertson, saying: “He started the move then, rather than retreating, made a smart run into the box to finish it. That was Liverpool at their very best.”
