Andy Robertson Has More Premier League Assists Than Silva, De Bruyne And Ozil Combined This Season
Andy Robertson added another two Premier League assists to his collection in Liverpool's 5-0 thrashing of Huddersfield last night.
The Scotland captain laid on typically inch-perfect deliveries for Sadio Mane and Mo Salah to take his assist countin the league to 11 - a number matched only matched Leighton Baines and Andy Hinchcliffe when it comes to defenders' tallies in a single season.
You'd certainly expect the Liverpool left-back to surpass the Everton duo in the remaining two games, too.
What's even more impressive, is the fact that only Eden Hazard, Christian Eriksen and Ryan Fraser have more assists than the former Hull City man, while Robertson has assisted more goals than three of the league's chief playmakers combined: David Silva, Kevin De Bruyne and Mesut Ozil.

Asked about raising each other's game through his assists, Robertson told Sky Sports: "Yeah, look, delighted. He got one as well. I'm just keeping in front! But it's all about trying to help the team, and that's why we did it [had a competition to get the most assists], it pushes both of us.
"I think it proves it by the numbers this season. But it's friendly banter and hopefully it's stayed that way the whole way through. Whoever wins it now it's going to be incredible and good numbers from both of us."
Back in 2013, a very young Robertson played for Queen's Park in front of just 242 spectators in the Scottish third division. Fast forward to the present day and he's arguably the best left-back in the world.
