Liverpool defender Andrew Robertson’s dramatic progression has been laid bare by his FIFA 19 Ultimate Team card.

This time last season, Robertson couldn’t get a kick for love no money. Alberto Moreno was in, the Scot was out and there wasn’t anything he could do about it. People were saying Moreno had improved, he was the future. Now, you don’t even question the Spaniard’s absence.

Manager Jurgen Klopp did his usual job of delaying Robertson’s introduction. By now that’s nothing new as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Fabinho have experienced the same thing. Back then it was a bit novel.

But Klopp timed it to perfection and since Robertson was handed a chance the left-back has hardly looked back. His improvement and dramatic progression is mirror in his Ultimate Team rating, which has risen from a 61 with Dundee United, to 73 with Hull City to 81 now.

Robbo is an excellent attacking option for those who want their full-backs to act like secondary wingers. With 84 pace and 77 dribbling, the Scottish captain will be fast enough to beat his man and good enough to go around them as well.

This is actually mirrored in real life with his assist stats for the season. Robertson already has two, and if he can continue hitting the byline and whipping crosses into the box that number will only rise.

As it stands, there isn’t much room for Moreno to get back into the side. With some fixture congestion approaching, you’d assume Klopp will rotate the side and that could include minutes for the Barcelona target.

It’s mad to think that the La Liga giants want to sign a player who can’t even get into the Anfield first team right now, but apparently they are interested in Arsenal man Nacho Monreal as well as Atletico Madrid left-back Filipe Luis.
