Young Jack Robinson put in another solid display for Liverpool when we took on Guangdong in our first pre-season match in China. Granted it was only a 45 minute run out for the young left-back against average opposition but it gives us confidence going forward that we have a good young prospect coming through the ranks.

Robinson broke into the Liverpool first team towards the end of last season due to other players being injured and he barely put a foot wrong. Liverpool still need to buy another left-back this summer who can come in and go straight into the starting lineup whilst Robinson is groomed in the reserve team and has a couple of run-outs in the first team.

ElPistoleroJFT96 has put together a video for us showing Robinson’s performance against Guangdong. What I enjoy about Robinson and Flanagan, when they came into the first team last season, is that they are not afraid to play; they will make runs forward, they will pass with confidence and they will put in crunching tackles no matter who the opposition is.
