Top Premier League Defenders in 2018/19 – Andrew Robertson

Andy Robertson

What a season Liverpool’s Andy Robertson has had. The 25-year-old left-back lifted the Champions League trophy last Saturday night with his team after they beat Premier League rivals Spurs 2-0 in the final in Madrid.

Domestically, Robertson has risen to be widely regarded as the best left-back in England and he showed this through his fantasy EPL performance for the season just finished.

Robertson – who captains his national team, Scotland – earned a total of 118 EPL fantasy football points meaning he finished as the second-highest scoring defender, just one point behind his Liverpool teammate Virgil van Dijk.

At just 7.0 million, Robertson turned out to be a real fantasy EPL bargain this season. He started 36 of Liverpool’s 38 Premier League fixtures. His attacking drives down the left were a vital part of The Reds’ valiant push for the title. Robertson finished the season with a total of 11 EPL assists which is a brilliant tally for a defender.

Those assists coupled with his regular starting place in the division’s strongest defence helped him on his way to the 118-point total.

Robertson’s highest points total in any game was 9 points which he was awarded on two occasions.

The first was in Liverpool’s 5-0 win over Watford at Anfield in February where he kept the clean sheet and also provided two assists.

The second was also in a 5-0 win, this time against Huddersfield in April. Again, Robertson got the clean sheet while laying on two assists for his teammates.

He scored 7 points in two games – the first fixture of the season when Liverpool beat West Ham United 4-0 at home and also in the 2-0 win over Fulham in November. In both games, Robertson got the 7 points for a clean sheet and providing an assist.

Impressively, Robertson only finished with a minus-points total in four games all season. Those games were:

  • Liverpool’s 5-1 win over Arsenal in December – he received a yellow card
  • The Reds’ 4-2 win against Burnley – conceded two goals
  • Their 3-1 win at Southampton in April – yellow card
  • Liverpool’s 3-2 win at Newcastle in May – conceded two goals


Robertson’s most unproductive period throughout the season was from mid-January until early February when he scored zero points for three games in a row – Liverpool’s 4-3 win over Crystal Palace and their two consecutive 1-1 draws, at home to Leicester and away to West Ham.

Strangely, the Scottish international’s best spell immediately followed that. He won 20 points over the next three matches – six points in the 3-0 win at home to Bournemouth, five points for the 0-0 draw away to Manchester United, and nine points in the 5-0 win against Watford as mentioned earlier as one of his two top-scoring games of the season.
