Andy Robertson believes Liverpool would be lost without ‘word-class’ player

Andy Robertson believes Liverpool would be lost without "world-class" Roberto Firmino leading the line for them. Firmino loves scoring, with his strike in the 3-0 win at Burnley – having pressured Ben Mee into making a mistake for the second goal which he set up – making him the first Brazilian to 50 Premier League goals. "With his work rate, his technique, his goals and his all-round play, I don't think there's anyone like him," said left-back Robertson. "People will say there are better strikers, but for me what he does is so important to our team. We'd be lost without him. He's world-class. "He does everything, and that's the beauty of Bobby. He can do it all. He's our first line of defence, and I've not seen anybody better at doing that. He presses the defenders and doesn't give them a minute. He comes back and nicks the ball in midfield for us. He's so important defensively for us, then he goes up the park and scores goals and makes assists. That's what we need him to do."
