Aldridge pleads Jurgen Klopp to start this player against Manchester United

Liverpool legend John Aldridge has urged Jurgen Klopp to start defender Andrew Robertson during their match against Manchester United this weekend.

The Reds defense has come under intense scrutiny this season as they have already conceded 12 goals in the Premier League and only won one of their past several games in all competitions.

Should the defence again be sloppy this weekend, then they could be torn apart by the likes of RomeluLukaku, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford.

United are also high on confidence at the moment as they are a team that is on top form and the Reds cannot expect to be sloppy for this game.

To stop the rampant United side, Aldridge has suggested that Robertson should start, saying, “I think the team pretty much picks itself for the weekend – but there is one change I would really like to see.

“I would love Andy Robertson to start at left back. I like the look of this lad, I like his left foot and the balance he gives going forward. He also looks a better defender than Alberto Moreno, from the little bits I’ve seen.

“When he’s started for us, he’s had an impact. I think United will try to lock down the middle of the pitch, so we’ll be pushed out to the flanks. That’s where Robertson, with those crosses he can whip in between goalkeeper and defender, can be a real asset.”
