Jordi Alba has been with Marcelo the best left side of the world along the last decade. The madridista and the Barcelona have delivered the majority of praises these last ten years and, further of Praise or Filipe Luis, any another player has been able to them do shadow in Europe. But the panorama is changing and in Liverpool there is a footballer that is arriving to a level seemed of game and transcendence.

It treats of Andrew Robertson, that from does a year and half is playing to a level estratosférico. With Marcelo already offside because of his disastrous level in the last times, Jordi Alba seems the only able to keep him the pulse to the Scottish, that is giving an extraordinary performance in Anfield.

The international by Scotland is being one of the keys of the Liverpool of Jürgen Klopp, that is basing good part of his offensive game in his two sides. Beside Alexander-Arnold, Robertson is adding a big power by band and has turned into the maximum assistant of his team. The one of Glasgow carries already four assistances in what it goes of campaign and empata with Arnold in a curious 'hammer' between both.

His speed, his resistance, his arrival from backwards and his good touch of balloon do not have parangón right now in Europe. Only Alba could be to his level, but the injuries are preventing him have the necessary regularity as to surrender of this form. In spite of everything, Robertson keeps the feet in the floor and goes on speaking of the of L'Hospitalet like the best in his place.

In an interview that has conceded to the chain of television ESPN, the 'network' affirmed that Alba is "the best side of the world". While many already speak of him like the best in his position, the Scottish follows standing out to the international Spanish. The true is that, until the last two months of the past campaign, the Catalan was being the best of the world with difference.

Alba arrived tired to final of course

Only the wear that supposed not having an acting of guarantees prevented that Alba arrived fresco to final of season. This did him have several errors precisely against the Liverpool, that took advantage of of his bad moment in the semifinals of Champions​. Robertson, instead, arrived to 100% and was one of the best of the 'reds', especially in the turn.
