Robertson names three best left-backs in the world including Premier League star

Andy Robertson has named Bayern Munich's Alphonso Davies, Ben Chilwell of Leicester City and Barcelona's Jordi Alba as the three best left-backs currently active in world football.

The 26-year-old Scotland international had another superb season playing in the position for Liverpool, scoring twice and creating 12 assists in the Premier League to help his side to the title.

He has clearly been keeping an eye on who else has been flourishing from the full-back position, and when asked by BT Sport to name his favourites he had three in mind.

"I think Alphonso Davies is already world class but he can only get better," Robertson said.

"Ben Chilwell I love watching in the Premier League, then I would say Jordi Alba, the more experienced one of the three I would say. You know, maybe coming the end of his career but what a career he’s had.

“You know, he really -him and Marcelo – probably took left-backs to a whole new level.”

Nineteen-year-old Davies particularly impressed in Bayern's 8-2 thrashing of Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-final last week, and he created a phenomenal assist by running 80 yards and beating Nelson Semedo before setting up Joshua Kimmich for his side's fifth goal.

Robertson was impressed by what he saw, but warned Reds supporters to not demand him to do something similar next season.

“Yeah, don’t be expecting me to do that any time in a hurry!" he added. "That was just incredible, he probably took five or six of them out of the game with one passage of play.

"So, phenomenal player, someone I enjoy watching and I think the whole world’s enjoying watching him at the minute – and I’m no different.”

Davies will next be in action on Wednesday as Bayern take on Lyon in the last four to decide who will take on the winners of RB Leipzig v PSG in Sunday's final.
