Some Liverpool supporters have expressed their disappointment over the showing of Andrew Robertson during yesterday’s Champions League round of 16 second leg tie against Bayern Munich.
The Reds had only managed a 0-0 result from the opening leg at Anfield, but they managed to produce a strong performance to come up with a comfortable 3-1 victory in the end.
Despite this, a few fans questioned the performance of Robertson, who was guilty of switching off for Serge Gnabry’s acute cross which contributed towards Joel Matip’s own goal to make it 1-1 at the break.
Elsewhere, the Scotland international also got himself suspended for the first leg of the quarter final stage after a needless yellow card in stoppage time, and the Liverpool faithful were certainly unimpressed.
Why did Robertson put in that silly challenge with seconds to go? Hopefully it doesn't prove costly as he's such an important player for us. May end up using Gomez there. #LFC

So poor from Robertson switching off for that goal. Almost as bad as his decision not to square it for a bobby tap in

Really bad by Robertson. Gets caught by a simple double movement, then gets out muscled.

Robertson’s game management can be so silly sometimes. First at Leicester and now tonight.

Very silly from Andy Robertson that. We’d literally have been better off letting them score there rather than him taking a booking.

No Robertson for 1st leg in the quarters. Needless stoppage time booking.

With Robertson suspended, Jurgen Klopp has the option of fielding Alberto Moreno at left-back, though the Spaniard has failed to perform at a consistent level in the past few seasons.
The other choice could be to rely on James Milner while Joe Gomez could also slot into the position, where he had initially begun his Reds career under former boss Brendan Rodgers.
